The voice of the global coal industryA life lived without energy, is a life lived in poverty.
Coal has been, is, and will be the backbone of modern electricity and is the bedrock on which the modern world is built. According to the International Energy Agency, it is the fastest growing fuel - and has been for the last 20 years. Coal plays a significant global role in sustainable development. It has already lifted hundreds of millions out of energy poverty. But there are still 1.3 billion people living without access to electricity. Coal will play a key role in providing more than half of the 'on-grid' electricity to deliver energy access for all.Coal. Fuelling the future.www.worldcoal.orgFollow WCA on Twitter:@WorldCoal
