DFID does not provide any bilateral assistance to developing countries for abated coal-fired projects. The UK encourages multilateral organisations to help developing countries make the investment decisions that will best deliver reliable, sustainable and affordable energy which is essential for economic growth and development. The Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy is supporting research and demonstration, including through the World Bank and Asian Development Bank, into Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage technology.
