Title: Big question: when will the coal market take off again

Abstract

Future energy demands are discussed in relation to the long-term prospects for coal. Recent predictions from organisations such as the International Energy Agency (IEA), Standard Oil of California, and Conoco indicate a sharp increase in coal demand from the second half of the 1980's onward. In the future, exploration and extraction of oil deposits will be much more costly due to exhaustion of cheaper supplies. Worldwide general economic recovery will result in an increased demand for coal. In addition a phenomenal growth of coal-based synfuels is foreseen after the turn of the century. By the year 2000 coal may have the largest market share of all types of energy.
