Has Covid led lockdown accelerated the decline in global thermal coal industry?

  Despite rising climate concerns, what still makes thermal coal the primary source of energy? Is the current slowdown the beginning of the end of global thermal coal industry?   The global thermal coal industry was a bit late in joining the Covid 19 led downturn as it remained resilient in the first 3-4 months of 2020 while most other industries had started to feel...

Power generation in the US, shifting landscape from coal to NG

Historically, the United States which is the world’s largest economy has maintained a significant share in the total global power generation sector. In 2015, its share in the overall power generation stood at 17.6% second only to China, whose share was 24.11%. The analysis of the power industry’s structure in the US, specifically during last two-three decades reveals that the country has seen...

Potash market facing a glut

Potash is one of the three main nutrients in the global fertiliser industry and 90% of the produced potash is consumed as a fertiliser in agricultural crops such as wheat, rice, corn, oilseed and sugar. The global demand for potash has been increasing owing to a rise in demand from China, India and Latin American nations since they lack indigenous production. But, this increase has led to a...

Power generation: changing landscape with fluctuations in fuel costs and challenges involved.

Dominance of Coal Historically, the power generation industry has been dominated by coal as a source of fuel. The fossil fuel fulfilled 1,520 Mtoe of the 3,292 Mtoe of additional global primary energy need from 2000 to 2012, or a little more than 46%. The Economic Impact Analysis (EIA) projects, that global electricity generation is likely to increase by 69% from 21.6 trillion kWh in 2012...

Natural gas, analysing trade flow trends of the cleanest fossil fuel

Production and price trend of the natural gas in the US Consumption/import trend in China Trade war’s impact on the natural gas   Natural gas constitutes 22% of the total energy supply mix globally. The fervent need for cleaner fuel for power generation and industrial purposes led to a 4% increase (~4624 billion cubic feet [bcf]) in the natural gas production in...
