The Clean Coal Power Initiative (CCPI) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) program which was luanched in 2002 "to enable and accelerate the deployment of advanced technologies to ensure clean, reliable, and affordable electricity for the United States."[1]

The DOE states that the "CCPI is a cost-shared partnership between the government and industry to develop and demonstrate advanced coal-based power generation technologies at the commercial scale. CCPI demonstrations address the reliability and affordability of the Nation's electricity supply, particularly from its coal-based generation. CCPI demonstrations will meet technical requirements set forth in the Energy Policy Act of 2005."[1]
