Coal: The Power Energizing The World

According to the Reuters, 1 in 10 people lack access to electricity. Coal aims to tackle this problem by innovating itself and using its affordability and reliability to meet the global power standards by 2030.

As a strategic resource that is widely recognized as essential for a modern quality of life, coal, has been a key contributor to sustainable development, and an essential element in enhanced energy security.

Today there are 1.3 billion people across the globe without access to electricity and 2.7 billion people who do not have clean cooking facilities. Due to a of lack of access to electricity and modern energy sources, people around the world, especially in rural communities,

struggle to break out of the cycle of poverty. For example:

  • Around 70 percent of business owners in Africa say that a lack of power is the number one factor stunting their growth.
  • Lack of access to computers and online resources is undermining the development of students and teachers in Asia and Africa.
  • Since businesses must shut down after dark, there is a lack of access to
  • global markets and less job growth.

Without a commitment to achieve universal energy access it has been estimated that by 2030, there will be an additional 1.5 million premature deaths per year caused by household pollution from burning wood and dung and through a lack of access to clean water, basic sanitation and healthcare. Modern energy sources, such as

coal, are essential to meeting these challenges.
