Can coal deliver?

US coal supply will need to increase 8.5% or 88 million tons over the next five years, according to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). Global Energy's projection of the power generation sector – which accounts for over 90% of US coal demand - foresees demand rising by 75 million tons, or 7.1% to 1.131 billion tons by 2011, due to stronger load growth and high gas prices. Global Energy expects load growth to increase by nearly 2.0% annually over the next five years.
