The global power system is in the early days of a massive transformation, and coal is at the center of the change. Availability and use of renewable energy generation, such as wind and solar power, is on the rise. But the fluctuating nature of these sources creates challenges for power and utility companies that need to continue running coal plants for their economic advantages or because of a lack of alternatives.
Globally, countries are in different stages of the renewable energy transformation and each face specific challenges in balancing the role of coal power in their own political- and resource-driven ecosystems.
This white paper will detail the state of coal in the energy mix for the following regions: North America, European Union, China, India, Japan, Southeast Asia, Australia and South Africa.
Read this paper to learn about trends for coal in each region, the challenges and opportunities before them and how digital can help them adapt in a rapidly changing industry.
