The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity is a partnership of the industries involved in producing electricity from coal.  Coal, an abundant and affordable American energy resource, provides nearly 35 percent of our power.  By 2018, the coal-based power industry is expected to have invested more than $126 billion to reduce emissions and to use this critical resource more cleanly and efficiently than ever before.
