ca-transp Coal Age Circulation Breakdown

Even though coal-fired power generation faces considerable headwinds, coal will remain a vital part of the world’s energy mix for the foreseeable future. The fuel supply for electricity in the U.S. will remain equally divided between coal, natural gas and nuclear power.

The world will mine and burn at least 6 billion metric tons (mt) of coal in 2016. A total of 10 countries will mine a significant amount of coal. The U.S. will burn nearly 900 million tons, which represents about 34% of electricity generation capacity for American power plants. The U.S will likely export 100 million tons in 2016.

China will mine and consume more than 3.5 billion mt of coal in 2016. India will burn more than 600 million tons to provide power for 100 million people. Australia will export more than 400 million tons to world markets.

While the wealthy debate whether the expense of renewable sources is worth the investment, middle- and lower-income families wonder how they will heat their homes and keep the lights on. Places of extreme energy poverty, such as India and Africa, have already decided that inexpensive electricity from coal is the best route.

Mining coal, whether it be from underground or surface mining operations, can be an inherently unsafe occupation. In addition to delivering news about the coal business worldwide, Coal Age offers safe, cost-effective solutions for mining and processing coal.
