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
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
