CURC-EPRI Advanced Technology Roadmap
To guide the collective thinking of long term investments in coal technology development, members of CURC, together with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), have developed an Advanced Coal Technology Roadmap that defines the research, development and demonstration necessary for coal to be cost competitive with, and have similar performance characteristic as, other low emitting power platforms and energy conversion technologies.
The CURC-EPRI Technology Roadmap describes technologies needed to acquire a set of benefits from coal that each organization views as important and achievable through advancements in technology. A new update was released in July 2015. The updated Roadmap provides a detailed pathway for the U.S. enabling delivery of first-of-a-kind, low-carbon coal technology options by 2025-2035.
