America's Power.org. "Factoids" - We are committed to making coal a clean energy source

Commitment is more than a word – it requires action. That is why over the past 30 years, America’s coal-based electricity providers have invested over $50 billion in technologies to reduce emissions – while at the same time providing affordable, reliable electricity to meet growing energy needs.

As a result of that commitment, today’s coal-based generating fleet is 70% cleaner on the basis of regulated emissions per unit of energy produced. Some say that is a real accomplishment. We say it is a great start.

Today, energy companies are working with the federal government to develop, demonstrate, and deploy the next generation of advanced technologies that will make it possible to reduce regulated emissions even further (to near-zero levels) and capture and store greenhouse gases.

Meeting this goal won’t be easy, but for those who doubt that the industry will make it … look at how far it's already come.

We are committed to making coal a clean energy source

Given the abundance of coal and the huge role it plays in helping us meet our electricity demands, it is important that we make sure it is a clean energy source.

For those who doubt the industry’s commitment to clean, let’s look at the facts.

Over the last 30 years, America’s coal-based electricity providers have invested over $50 billion in technologies to reduce emissions – while at the same time providing affordable, reliable electricity to meet growing energy needs.

As a result of that commitment, today’s coal-based generating fleet is 70% cleaner on the basis of regulated emissions per unit of energy produced.
