The report treats the USA and Canada separately, although they share many geological features, including coalfields. Separate treatment is warranted because markedly different factors affect coal supply in the two countries. The report starts with brief digests of previously published IEA Coal Research reports. It then goes on to examine how changes in exogenous factors – the state of the economy, energy supply and demand, electricity demand, regulations to protect the environment, export demand – have affected North America coal suppliers. It assesses trends in coal production and related infrastructure, particularly transport. It analyses prospects for coal supply and prices by region.
