General circumstances concerning the role of coal are discussed, along with improvements in utilization and future coal conversion processes. It is concluded that coal will remain a very important energy source on a world scale for many decades. In the UK there is the potential at least to maintain present levels of output. In other parts of Western Europe, although capacity has been lost more rapidly than in the UK, there is also the possibility of changing this trend in some places.
