Benefits of membership
Members get direct access to the expertise of the IEA CCC and the impartial analysis and information that we provide. Members benefit from extensive international networking in a collaborative setting. Members decide on the work programme of the Centre and so direct our research. Residents of member countries and employees of sponsoring organisations can download IEA CCC reports at no charge, after a one-off registration. Members are associated with an impartial organisation with a prestigious international reputation for the quality of its analysis,
Types of membership
The IEA Clean Coal Centre has two categories of membership :
•Contracting Parties, which can be governments or entities nominated by them. They can also be international organisations in which governments participate.
•Sponsors, which are usually, but not always, from the private sector and have not been designated by a government. Sponsors have to be approved by the IEA and cannot vote on the accession or rejection of new members.
Members of the IEA Clean Coal Centre contribute annually to a common fund to finance the activities of the programme. There is a set subscription rate for new sponsors. An Executive Committee (ExCo) of representatives nominated by the contracting parties and sponsors acts as the ‘board of directors'. The ExCo meet twice each year. Both sponsors and contracting parties have a single vote at ExCo meetings, which means that they have an equal influence over the work programme and policies. Dr Adolf Aumüller of Austria is the current Chair of the Executive Committee and Prof Jurgen-Freidrich Hake of Germany and Barry MacColl of South Africa are the Vice Chairs.
Members of the IEA Clean Coal Centre represent a wide range of interests. Most, but not all, of the member countries are members of the OECD. The majority of the sponsor organisations are from non-OECD countries. The sponsors include utilities, coal companies, equipment and services suppliers and research organisations.
