COAL21 – Low Emissions Coal Australia


Limiting global temperature rise from climate change requires a reduction in global COemissions.  And achieving emissions reduction at the lowest cost while maintaining a reliable energy supply poses a significant challenge.

The COAL21 Fund was established in 2006 to meet this challenge as the foundation of the significant investment by the Australian black coal industry in the demonstration of low-emissions coal technologies, such as carbon capture and storage (CCS).

The Fund is supported by a voluntary levy on coal production and includes 26 investors from among Australia’s black coal producers.

COAL21 primarily invests in the development of low-emissions technologies for the coal-fired power generation sector and in emissions reduction from coal mines, though other industries that use coal are also considered for investment.
