4 EARLY GENERATION, HIGH EFFICIENCY, LOW EMISSION COAL POWER PLANTS ALREADY IN OPERATION

IT'S ALREADY IN AUSTRALIA

To ensure a reliable supply of electricity, Australia needs a genuine mix of energy options including renewables. However, they are not reliable enough to provide the 252 terawatt hours of electricity we need every year††. That’s why high efficiency, low emission (HELE) coal generation will be a vital part of our future energy mix.

 

Worldwide investment in coal-fired power generation topped $66 billion in 2015 and continues to grow. With the world’s 4th largest coal reserves, Australia is well placed to ensure the world’s energy mix delivers reliable and affordable power.

In 2040, the International Energy Agency forecasts 
that coal will provide 28% of the world’s electricity
1.7x more than hydro, 2.8x more than wind, 
4.5x more than solar.
