The Global Coal Market: Supplying the Major Fuel for Emerging Economies

Coal has been the world's fastest-growing energy source in absolute terms for over a decade. Coal also emits more CO2 than any other fossil fuel and contributes to serious air pollution problems in many regions of the world. If we hope to satisfy the demand for affordable energy in emerging economies while protecting the environment, we need to develop a keen understanding of the market that supplies coal. This book offers an in-depth analysis of the key producers and consumers that will most influence coal production, transport, and use in the future.

PESD Releases New Book on Global Coal Market

Coal is the leading energy-related cause of climate change and creates serious local air pollution; it also remains, for now, an essential energy source for many growing economies. PESD's new volume studies key coal producing and exporting countries--China, India, Indonesia, Australia, South Africa, and the United States--for insights into how coal production, transport, and consumption will evolve in the future, and what this may mean for the environment.
