Collaborative Coal Resources Program Tasks


A
Identify potential CCRP Participants and assist collaboration with advanced visual database technology to enhance traditional communication methods in a dynamic manner.


BCommunicate the goals of the CCRP to potential participants and facilitate their involvement.


CHost CCRP team meetings at participants’ facilities (both physically and virtually as effective) to identify CCRP champions.


DInvolve, motivate and mobilize CCRP Champions in the CCRP and identify potential sites for CBEPF.


EUtilize virtual design tools to create Virtual Renderings (computer animations) of CBEPF on all potential sites in Google Earth.


FIdentify and gather authoritative data relevant to planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of each potential CBEPF and pour that data into the BIM Data Bucket associated with each CBEPF.


GExtract enhanced information from the BIM Data Buckets and create refined Virtual Renderings of all potential CBEPF.


HEducate the public about the economic and ecological merits of the proposed CBEPF.


IEducate the local construction communities about the construction, operation and maintenance of CBEPF using Virtual Renderings created with data extracted from relevant BIM Data Buckets.


JAttract funding by educating potential investors about the merits of the CBEPF.


KObtain additional funding by leveraging relationships CCRP participants have within the US Department of Energy to obtain additional funding and to publicize the overall energy savings and ecological benefits associated with CBEPF nationally.


LEducate the Department of Defense regarding the viability of diesel and jet fuel produced in Goal Gasification Facilities and work to obtain long term contracts from the DOD for the purchase of fuel produced at such facilities.


MEducate other relevant public and private entities about the positive impact CBEPF can have on our economy and our environment.


NDemonstrate the economic and ecological viability of CBEPF planned, constructed, operated and maintained in the virtual world.

Advantages of the Collaborative Model


ACoal Gasification Technology is Proven Domestically and Internationally


BNanotechnology is another promising area of potential collaboration.


CProject Alliance Contracting (the forerunner to integrated and collaborative agreements emerging in the private sector) have been used successfully overseas to commercialize major energy projects


DCollaborative or integrated agreements are being used successfully to provide Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) throughout the US

Socio-Economic Impact of the Collaborative Coal Resources Program





I. Introduction to Collaborative Coal Resource Program



The Collaborative Coal Resource Program (CCRP) will do three things:


  • Assist Kentucky as it demonstrates leadership in the coal industry by aligning disparate economic and ecological interests of geographically dispersed stakeholders in the coal industry, utilizing advanced visualization software to graphically depict the efficient and ecologically friendly commercialization our coal resources.


  • Communicate the benefits of tapping our vast coal resources in an efficient and ecologically friendly manner to all stakeholders by leveraging substantial in kind contributions of design and communication technologies to reach all stakeholders in a medium they will relate to and understand.


  • Arm the stakeholders in the coal industry with advanced visual imaging software, collaborative forms of legal agreements and other innovative collaborative processes that will enable them to work cooperatively to pursue the commercialization of a variety of economically viable and ecologically friendly coal based energy producing process.



Pursuant to Kentucky Revised Statutes Chapter 152.712, and in accordance with the Request For Proposals issued by the Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence (DEDI) Collaborative Construction Resources, (CCR) LLC proposes the creation of a Collaborative Coal Resource Program (CCRP) that will help a collaborative coalition of governmental and private entities calculate the benefits of planning, designing, constructing and operating Coal Based Energy Production Facilities (CBEPF) in Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Wyoming. Throughout this proposal CBEPF is meant to include, but not be limited to, commercial scale facilities for converting coal-to-liquid (CTL) coal-to-gas (CTG) and integrated-gasification-combined-cycle power plants (IGCC).


Kentucky can expand its role as a leader in the coal industry by adopting a comprehensive and collaborative approach to the planning, design and construction of CBEPF. Further, the Kentucky Department of Energy Development and Independence can use the CCRP as a road map for future collaborative processes and can share the road map with others. In addition, taking a collaborative approach to CBEPF will enhance the economic opportunities for all Kentucky citizens and industries through expansion of current markets and the development of additional market opportunities for Kentucky coal. Planning, designing and building CBEPF on a collaborative basis will enhance almost every sector of Kentucky’s economy and will create new economic opportunities around the state.


Collaborative Construction Resources, (CCR) LLC will lead the effort to create a Collaborative Coal Resources Program (CCRP) that will tap and align the resources and talents of a collaborative coalition of governmental and private entities whose collective interests will be advanced by planning, designing, constructing and operating CBEPF in Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Wyoming.


Specifically, CCR proposes to build a coalition of governmental and private entities capable of planning, designing, constructing and operating at least 10 CBEPF in Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Wyoming. This multi-state / multi-party cooperative will educate the participants regarding the use of Collaborative / Integrated or Alliance Agreements, Virtual Design Tools or Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, Lean Design and Construction techniques and other evolving collaborative tools that will ensure alignment of the economic interests of the participants and the communities in which the CBEPF are sited.
