PLACE OF COAL IN THE TOTAL ENERGY NEEDS OF THE UNITED STATES

Solar power and fusion technology are expected to be significant contributors to the total energy supply in the 21st century. Geothermal power and hydropower will continue to supply increasing amounts of energy, largely for local markets in the future. In the immediate future the country must depend largely on the fossil fuel resources and nuclear energy. Coal resources and reserves and the role of coal in the energy market are discussed. Problems facing the coal industry are mentioned. (ERA citation 02:036942)
