Coal Age/E&MJ India
Boasting one of the world's fastest growing economies, the Indian coal industry is still lagging behind its domestic energy needs. Dirk Fourie, vice president of consulting company Wood MacKenzie, stated that he expects coal demand in India to grow at a faster rate than in any other country in the world.
With power plant coal use projected to increase about 2% per year for the foreseeable future, the expanding development of domestic sources of coal to supplement growing imports will drive the need to import technology. In recent years, Coal India Limited has explored partnership and investing opportunities both in India and abroad.
Following successful issues from 2010 to 2013, Mining Media International will once again produce a special issue of Coal Age/E&MJ India in November, 2014. Distribution comes from a variety of sources including trade associations, export bodies and companies already doing business in India.
