Abstract
This study examined in considerable detail the historical behavior of coal consumption, the forces that are affecting prospective coal use, and provided various scenarios of future consumption in selected markets. The study has made three basic contributions in the areas it treated. First, the report has consolidated and analyzed available historical data on the role of coal in the U.S. energy economy. Second, the proliferation of materials analyzing the forces affecting coal market developments has been synthesized. Third, an effort has been made to delineate possible patterns of future coal use. Experience with the debate on coal suggests that the first two contributions are clearly ones of value to students of the issues. Bringing together this information should help to provide better perspective on energy prospects. The report has sought to place the mass of emotional arguments for various energy policies affecting coal into perspective.
