Karla Lant reported that although Britain has historically run on coal-generated power, the country just went without any for a full 24 hours. This is a first for the area, and it will be the first of many such days to come. The National Grid confirmed that April 21 was the first full day of coal-free power in 135 years, following a relatively long stretch of 19 hours in May 2016. This is not due to any one alternative power source, but to an increasingly varied range of power options.

Gridwatch observers estimate that about half of the energy used that day came from natural gas, wh... More →

Dr. Conca reports that on March 31st, the Department of Energy in the Republic of South Africa finishes its public comment period on how the country plans to move away from coal and towards low-carbon sources like nuclear and renewables.

This is not a simple move. Generation of electricity in South Africa is overwhelmingly dominated by coal, particularly low-grade coal, and the country uses coal to generate a third of its liquid fuels as well. Over 90% of electricity comes from coal, with only 3% from nuclear, 3% from natural gas and 2% combined from conventional and pumped hydroele... More →

Coal Geology, second edition, offers a thoroughly revised and updated edition of this popular book which provides a comprehensive overview of the field of coal geology.

Coal Geology covers all aspects of coal geology in one volume, bridging the gap between the academic aspects and the practical role of geology in the coal industry. The object of the book is to provide the reader with a with a description of the origins of coal together with the physical and chemical properties of coal and coal petrology before proceeding to cover all areas of coal exploration, production and use. <...

Chapter 7 - Coal
Coal is a combination of pure carbon and hydrocarbons with varying amounts of moisture, minerals and heavy metals. It was the first fossil fuel used extensively by humans, and is still vitally important today, generating 39 percent of the world’s electricity, 49 percent of U.S. electricity and 36.5 percent of Texas’ electricity in 2006. Coal is one of the world’s most widely used fuels. Coal is found on every continent and in some 70 countries. The U.S., Russia, China and India have the world’s largest reserves. The World Coal Institute in London e... More →

The National Academy of Sciences is the most respected scientific organization in the world. In July of this year, the Academy published a major assessment of America's Energy Future, detailing major policy options open to the United States. [1] Importantly, Dr. Steven Chu, U. S. Secretary of Energy, was a member of the committee that wrote the report. Coal with CCS is regarded as the most viable means of meeting growing electricity demand over the next several decades.
