The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) advocates for public policies that advance environmental improvement, economic prosperity and energy security. ACCCE believes that the wise use of coal – one of America’s most abundant, domestically produced energy resources – is essential to providing affordable, reliable electricity for millions of U.S. consumers and a growing domestic economy. Further, ACCCE is committed to continued and enhanced U.S. leadership in developing and deploying new, advanced clean coal technologies that protect and improve the environment. Finally, ACCCE closely follows issues and public policy deliberations at the federal and state levels.

Federal Issues
ACCCE supports federal policies that promote economic and environmental progress, energy security, and the wise use of domestic coal because of its abundance and affordability.

State Issues
ACCCE recognizes that state energy and environmental legislation plays a large role in determining energy policy. ACCCE supports state legislation and regulations that ensures consumers continue to have access to affordable, reliable coal-generated electricity. One way to achieve that and help our environment is to site and build new power plants that will help meet our growing energy demand. Check back here regularly to learn more about new state legislation and regulations as they arise and how proposed regulations and power-plant siting efforts could affect electricity consumers.
