Today, the coal industry is managing through significant challenges and opportunities. The challenges are regulation driven — such as difficult Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) Clean Power Plan compliance for coal customers, mine remediation mandates, etc.; market driven — such as coal price compression due to low-cost shale gas, coal-to-gas conversions, etc.; and technology driven — such as advances in renewable energy options like solar and wind. The opportunities for the coal industry include export potential to meet the growing demand for coal in the burgeoning economies of India, China and Southeast Asia. In addition, there are opportunities in alternative fuels generated from clean coal technology and technology improvements in coal gasification and liquefaction, among others.
