Uncertain Transition Away From Coal – Stories From China & the United States

After many years of U.S.-China collaboration on clean energy and greenhouse gas mitigation, the world’s two largest energy consumers have found themselves at the crossroads and taking different paths. The Trump administration has demonstrated an intent to funnel new policy support toward coal fired power, which is struggling to compete with low natural gas prices in the U.S., and the cut back programs that encourage renewables. China, while still expected to lead the world in coal consumption for the foreseeable future, is undergoing a massive transformation in its coal sector that extends from the mines to the power plants. China’s experience suggests that a new U.S. coal boom likely would not produce the benefits the Trump administration is anticipating. At the same time, coal sectors are transitioning toward new, more efficient technologies that address some of the negative externalities from coal but also bring more automation to the sector, which reduces jobs, and renewable jobs are booming in both nations.
