The high price and limited availability of oil fuel are discussed as a motive to return to coal as the primary fuel. This provides unprecedented opportunities for applications of Stirling engines to stationary power and automotive applications over a broad spectrum. For heavy automotive application in railway locomotives and the larger off-highway mining and earth moving vehicles, it appears possible for Stirling engines of corresponding power and efficiency to replace diesels in the same installation envelope.
