A new report from the International Energy Agency shows that coal-fired power generation increased by three per cent in 2017 and is expected to grow again in 2018. The IEA’s annual coal outlook also notes that coal’s share of the global energy mix was steady at 38 per cent in 2017. IEA executive director Fatih Birol says coal will remain a major source of power generation for some time. Meanwhile, the IEA forecasts that Australia’s thermal coal exports will rise over the next five years.
