By 2030, the range of projected coal use in the United States broadens considerably, from about 70 percent above to 50 percent below current levels. At present, coal imports and exports represent small fractions of total U.S. coal production and use. Projections indicate that imports and exports are expected to remain relatively small.
Nov 04, 2020 Global coal-fired power production declined by 2.9 gigawatts in the first half of 2020 due to the pandemic and coal plant closures in the US and Europe. The pause in production due to the pandemic is an opportunity for nations to reassess their energy goals and choose a cost-optimal path away from reliance on coal.
Jul 16, 2021 The US Energy Information Administration EIA forecasts that coal production in the states will increase by 78 million short tons MMst, or 15, for 2021, reflecting the greater demand for coal in the electric power sector.
