Coal – energy for sustainable development
This latest report published by the World Coal Association looks at how coal can bring energy access to millions and support economic growth in the developing world. It also provides recommendations necessary to deliver energy access for all.
Access to energy is essential to addressing the problems that cause poverty. Without energy, people cannot access the opportunities provided by the modern world but 1.3 billion people lack access to electricity today. With coal resources existing in many developing countries, coal clearly has a major role to play in providing energy access in the form of coal-fired electricity. The World Coal Association’s (WCA) latest report "Coal – Energy for Sustainable Development" looks at how coal can bring energy access to millions and support economic growth in the developing world.
