Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Coal could be called energys comeback kid: sometimes forgotten, perhaps underappreciated, but always available for one more shot at the big time. It is one of humankinds original sources of energy, and is used worldwide for cooking, heating, forging steel, and making electricity. In the United States, coals role today is limited almost exclusively to electricity generation; for the last decade or so, even that use has stagnated. For years new power facilities that relied on coal were spurned in favor of natural gas, as American electric companies were wooed by the cleaner-burning fossil fuel and its easier-to-site and cheaper-to-build power plants. Still, because so many coal-fired plants were built before the natural gas craze, coal accounts for over 50% of our annual electric generation. And now many energy experts say coal is poised to once again play a prominent role in the United States.
