IS COAL MAKING A COMEBACK?

By Betsy Monseu, ACC CEO

 

There is no question that the future is brighter for our nation’s coal industry.

 

Changes in policy, regulations, and markets are contributing to a stronger domestic coal industry. The U.S. economy is growing again. Global economic activity is increasing. The business prospects of other countries that use our coal for electricity, steel-making, and other industrial purposes are better. U.S. coal exports are up a whopping 70 percent year-to-date through September 2017.

 

Some new U.S. coal mines have opened and others are expanding, adding good jobs and tax revenue for states and localities. According to the Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration, year-to-date 2017 U.S. coal production has increased by about 8 percent over 2016. Coal-mining employment is trending similarly.  Read More

 

ACC COMMENTS SUBMITTED TO EPA ON REPEAL OF CLEAN POWER PLAN (1.15.18)

The American Coal Council (ACC) submits these comments in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Federal Register Notice of October 16, 2017 of its proposed rule for Repeal of Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stationary Sources for Electric Utility Generating Units. 

 ACC supports EPA’s proposed rule to repeal these CO2 emissions guidelines for the power sector, which EPA conveniently if not accurately called the “Clean Power Plan” (CPP). In our comments submitted to EPA on November 24, 2014 in response to the proposed rule, we expressed grave concerns about the detrimental impacts and lack of benefits of regulating CO2 emissions as EPA initially designed the rule. This regulation as proposed and later finalized is unworkable – lengthy, complex, ambiguous and over-reaching. With its controversial “outside the fence line” approach, the rule would transform how electricity is produced, distributed, transmitted, and used in the United States. It would inappropriately place EPA in the role of energy regulator, rather than environmental regulator.  Read More
