Coal - Can the Rally Last? 

Matt Preston – Research Director, North America Thermal Coal Markets

Do you remember when coal demand for the power sector seemed “only” to be tied to the weather? As our 2018 summer continues, weather and many other variables are influencing coal and electricity demand.
President Trump kicked summer off with a June 1 directive to Secretary of Energy Rick Perry to prepare immediate steps to stop the loss of fuel-secure power plants due to concerns about impending retirements of these resources and impacts to grid resiliency.

Join us as Matt Preston discusses developments in coal, power, and policy – with an emphasis on the second half of 2018 and into 2019:

• Will exports remain strong?
• Gas oversupply is coming – when, where?
• How much coal demand will renewables “blow away”?
• How is retiring coal plant capacity beginning to make a difference?
• Will Trump's directive to Secretary Perry save coal plants?
