As a result, we estimate the full net-present-value cost of substituting coal-fired power with renewables and gas in China to be $1.3 trillion—or 0.55% of China's cumulative GDP through 2030—including about $750 billion in stranded assets.
1. Introduction. China is the world's largest consumer of both total primary energy and energy from coal and is also the world's largest emitter of carbon dioxide (CO 2).Coal accounted for 66% of China's total primary energy consumption in 2014 (National Bureau of Statistics of China, 2015), is expected to account for 50% of the total primary energy consumption by 2030 (), and will continue to ...
In particular the United States, China and India have immense coal reserves. For them, as well as for importers of coal in Europe and East Asia, economics ... imposed on CO 2. emissions. e. MIT STUDY ON THE FUTURE OF COAL x. MIT STUDY ON THE FUTURE OF COAL and . …
The growing constraints on China's coal development will give China more incentives to transform its energy system towards a more clean and low-carbon future. Tags: coal, china, climate change, energy, low carbon development
This report, the future of coal in a carbon-constrained world, evaluates the technologies and costs associated with the generation of electricity from coal along with those associated with the capture and sequestration of the carbon dioxide produced coal-based power generation.

Given current coal use in China, and the urgent need to cut emissions, 'clean coal' technologies are regarded as a promising solution for China to meet its carbon reduction targets while still obtaining a considerable share of energy from coal.
The fast economic growth of China has been fueled by prodigious coal consumption. In 2013, coal consumption of China is equivalent to 2943 million tons standard coal (Mtce), accounting for more than half of global total.

China: Coal is dominating the market China is the world's largest coal user, producer and importer. Motivated by air quality concers, China is making some efforts to reduce use of coal power, but the country still uses a huge amount of coal – 4.2 billion tonnes in 2012, according to the Energy Information Administration.
Coal is the main source of energy in China. In 2011 the Chinese coal production was equivalent to 3,576 Mt × 0.522 toe/t × 11.630 MWh/toe = 21,709 TWh. Assuming the same caloric value for the imported coal the net coal energy available would be evaluated as 22,784 TWh.
Despite China's much-publicised pollution problems, the reason for the cancellations is because the country was actually vastly exceeding its planned coal capacity for the future. Per China's five-year-plan for its power sector, it's targeting a coal-fired capacity of 1,100 GW in 2020 – a sizeable increase from its existing 920 GW.
