SHORT-TERM COAL FORECAST, 1975-1980

This report provides estimates of bituminous coal and lignite production, consumption and end-of-year stocks for 1975 through 1980. The report discusses the approach and data base used to develop the projections of 1975-1980 production, consumption and stock levels; estimates the price impacts of these projections; and discusses the uncertainties and sensitivities inherent in the projections. Appendices contain regional breakdowns of the 1975-1980 supply and demand projections; an analysis of why increases in coal production capacity are likely to be insufficient to meet the requirements of new coal-fired electrical generation capacity; a list of coal quality characteristics of the supply regions developed for Project Independence; and an analysis of short-term coal production responses to any change in spot market coal prices.
