Program on Energy and Sustainable Development
China’s annual coal production, at 3.24 billion tonnes (Gt) in 2010, accounted for nearly half of the global total. In this comprehensive analysis of China’s coal value chain, Jianjun Tu examines the industrial organization and structure of China’s coal production, transport, and consumption. Tu’s study shines a light on one of the world’s largest and most complex energy markets and should be read by anyone with an interest in the future of coal, climate change, or global energy markets.
