Coal in the Energy Supply of China

Abstract This report, prepared by the Coal Industry Advisory Board (CIAB), an advisory body to the International Energy Agency, provides an informative overview of the coal industry within the context of China’s energy economy. Descriptive rather than prescriptive, it examines the main economic, geographic and environmental issues facing the industry. The importance of China to the climate change challenge is undeniable and the issue of technology transfer to ensure higher coal-burning efficiencies both in the power and industrial sectors is an issue of common interest to China and OECD countries
