This report is the principal written deliverable of the project "Mitigating climate change through attracting foreign direct investment in advanced fossil fuel technologies", financed from the United Nations Development Account (UNDA). The project, implemented in 2010-2012, covered nine countries: Afghanistan, China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. The report takes into account findings of the national baseline studies, drafted for each of the nine countries between November 2011 and August 2012. The report summarizes and interprets the experiences, policies, and plans for the future of each country in developing a thermal electricity sector using advanced technologies that reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and exploit the countries’ fossil fuel resources.

Advanced fossil fuel technologies for cleaner electricity generation

Advanced technologies for using fossil fuels in electricity generation have evolved over the past decades primarily as a means of achieving higher fuel energy efficiency through burning of these fuels at higher temperatures. An important goal in recent years has also been to reduce CO2 emissions from power plants, which historically have been the biggest single source of man-made CO2, as part of the global program of mitigating climate change.
