Five U.S. companies involved in the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center (CERC), led by West Virginia University (WVU), will work with Chinese partners to develop and test clean coal technologies, including carbon dioxide capture and storage. The consortium workplan has been signed now.


In September 2010, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced that it would award WVU $12.5 million over the next five years for the CERC project. WVU will administer the project while Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) will take the lead on technical aspects. CERC consortium members will equally match DOE's total contribution with financial and labor commitments to the project.


The consortium includes WVU, Babcock & Wilcox Co. (B&W), the University of Wyoming, University of Kentucky, Indiana University, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Los Alamos National Laboratory, National Energy Technology Laboratory, World Resources Institute, U.S.-China Clean Energy Forum, General Electric, Duke Energy, LP Amina, and American Electric Power.
