Chinese Society of Power Engineering is the academic mass organization of national power engineering science and technology
professionals, a part of (CAST) China Association for Science and Technology, its predecessor the Chinese Society of
Mechanical Engineering Turbine and Boiler,was established in 1962, changed its name to China Machinery Society of Power
Engineering in 1979. According to the requirement of China's power engineering disciplines development and the majority of
power engineering science and technology professionals, become a national top level society - China Society of Power
Engineering in December 1988,was approved by the National Science and Technology Commission, joined the (CAST)China
Association for Science and Technology in August 1992 .
The Society is a multi-disciplinary comprehensive society focusing on the research, design and manufacture of power
generation thermodynamic equipment. It includes 11 professional committees such as turbine, boiler, hydraulic turbine,
nuclear power, industrial gas, automatic control, materials, environmental protection technology and equipment, new energy
equipment industrial gas and academic, organization, international cooperation, editing and publishing, consulting and
exhibitions and other five working committees.
Founded in 2005, the European Technology Platform for Zero Emission Fossil Fuel Power Plants (ZEP) is a unique coalition
of stakeholders united in their support for CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) as a key technology for combating climate change.
ZEP serves as advisor to the European Commission on the research, demonstration and deployment of CCS.
The European utilities, petroleum companies, equipment suppliers, scientists, academics and environmental NGOs that
together form ZEP have three main goals:
Enable CCS as a key technology for combating climate change.
Make CCS technology commercially viable by 2020 via an EU-backed demonstration programme.
Accelerate R&D into next-generation CCS technology and its wide deployment post-2020.
ZEP was born out of the EU’s recognition of CCS as a key component of any future sustainable energy system. Its mission:
to identify and remove the barriers to creating highly efficient power plants – with near-zero emissions.
The first research initiative on CCS can be found as far back as the EU’s Third Framework Programme (FP3), 1990-1994 –
its main financial tool for supporting Research and Development activities for almost all scientific disciplines.
Subsequent programmes – which in 2006 became seven-year programmes – have given increasing weight to CCS-related
As the EU moves closer towards the deployment of CCS, ZEP will continue to serve as:
CCS Advisor and Facilitator - expert advice on all technical, policy, commercial and other related issues.
CCS Technology Contributor - input on all technology issues, including recommendations for next-generation CCS
technologies, taking into account experience gained from the EU CCS Demonstration Programme.
Respected Communicator - educator and source of information, including engaging internationally on CCS.
In the autumn of 2005, the ZEP Advisory Council and Coordination Group – along with four Working Groups and a Mirror Group
– were established and ZEP published a Vision Paper the following May. The Working Groups were later renamed Taskforces,
while the Mirror Group became the Government Group.
Our Society aims to promote the following activities as related to thermal and nuclear power generating technology:
investigation and research, the creation of standards, the gathering/providing information, the training of engineers, and
exchange/cooperation with internal/external organizations. Our objective through these activities is to develop and improve
on power generating technologies, and to ultimately contribute to Japan’s economic growth.
Korea Electric Association is a central association representative o f the entire electric industry of Korea, established
in 1965 to take the lead of the development and unity of the electric industry.
Over the past half century, the association as a centripetal body has made efforts to reinforce electrical industry and
national competitiveness as well as to Improve the quality of life of the
As the electrical industry has served as a underpin for the country's economy to emerge as the world's top 10 and now
electricity industry is creating the key driving force for realizing creative economy, such as smart grid and energy
industry, the association is committed to opening the age of income $ 40, 000 over $ 30 000.
In line with this, the association will continue to grow as a representative body of the Republic of Korea, loved and
trusted by those involved in electricity as well as by the public by further pushing on policy development, R & D, and
training so that the electricity industry can work as a new growth engine industry.
The Indonesian Electrical Power Society (MKI) was established in 1998, based on the spirit of Law No. 15/1985 on
Electricity, by then Minister of Mines and Energy and stakeholders of the Indonesian electrical power industry as a forum
of communication, coordination and consultation for the Indonesian electrical power sector.
MKI is a non-profit organization which activities involve formulating opinions and ideas to develop and expand the
electrical power industry in Indonesia, at the national as well as international levels toward a self reliance industry
characterized by the motto: “brighter, stronger, affordable, and outspread”. MKI members comprise of all stakeholders in
the electrical power sector from the upstream to the downstream, covering the entire value chain of activities.
MKI membership covers all elements individuals, associations, companies, cooperatives, and academics, nationals as well as
internationals, which are directly associated with electrical power sector activities in Indonesia from primary energy
suppliers to producers of electricity, equipment manufacturers and support services, down to consumers.
The Philippine Independent Power Producers Association, Inc. (PIPPA) is a professional organization of independent power
producers (IPPs) working to provide adequate, reliable, and affordable supply of electricity to Filipino homes and
Formed on November 15, 1995, PIPPA provides an avenue for its member-IPPs to exchange information on policies affecting the
electric power industry. It also serves as the industry’s voice in advancing public policy that will be beneficial not
only for its members but, more importantly, for the Filipino consumers.
HISTORY OF THE ASSOCIATION
OF PRIVATE POWER PRODUCERS
Electricity, and essential utility of living and for the development of the nation, has been managed by the government
during the past. However, giving the rapid growth in demand of electricity, the large amount of investment will be required
in order to keep up with the development in this field.
Therefore, in order to reduce the burden to the government's budget for the construction of the electricity generation
facilities, Thai cabinet had approved the private investment scheme in this sector in 1994, in form of the purchase of
electricity from independent power producers through the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand.
From then, private producers have played their role along with the state in the development of power sectors. Consequently,
the private power producers which consist of the Small Power Producer (SPP) and the Independent Power Producer (IPP) had
established the Association of their industry namely The Association of Private Power Producers (APPP)
"APPP" The Association of Private Power Producers was established under the Thai Trade Association Act, B.E. 2509, on 18th
of May 2000.
