LONDON, April 16 /PRNewswire/ --

Faced with concerns about the climate change and global warming, various industry groups hold up clean coal as a solution. The power generation market is characterised by rising energy demand and fossil fuels' growing importance in the energy mix. Relatively stable prices and geographically diversified reserves make coal a fossil fuel suitable to sustain increasing energy needs. Growing concerns over rising level of carbon emissions dictate the need for cleaner technologies to burn coal, driving next generation clean coal technologies such as carbon capture and storage (CCS). At the same time, advanced clean coal technologies such as CCS are at a pre-commercialization stage and face a number of challenges.


Frost Sullivan is pleased to announce its 2009 quarterly analyst briefing presentation on the Power Generation market. The complimentary web conference titled 'Clean Coal Technologies - What are Future Prospects?' will be held on Tuesday 28 April, 2009 at 2:00 pm BST.

Frost Sullivan Analyst Sunil Krishna will provide detailed analysis, focusing on the future of clean coal. The main points include: long term energy demand, need for replacement capacity in Europe, suitability of coal in the fuel mix, clean coal technologies and their future.

Clean coal technologies are extremely important for the future of power generation and a necessity for the future of coal in the fuel mix. However, there exist challenges in the road to commercialization, observes Analyst Sunil Krishna.

This briefing will benefit utility companies, independent power producers, power generation equipment makers and investors in the power sector, by discussing emerging trends and the need for the same in the clean coal technology industry.
