Coal is one of the most controversial sources of modern energy. In America about 29% of the electricity we use is generated by power plants that burn coal. Coal is a plentiful but nonrenewable resource. But coal is a form of carbon and when we burn coal we release carbon into the atmosphere, which contributes to global warming.
· Philippines: Coal to remain key component of PH energy mix 9 November 2020 Coalfired power plants continue to be an important component of the Philippines' energy mix and the government cannot afford to mandate a retirement of such facilities although it is prepared to disallow additional projects, according to Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.
· "Coal makes up 40% of global fossil fuel emissions. Climate impacts like Haiyan and Ketsana and the long drought in the Philippines last 2016, the forest fires in California and flooding in Europe, all these should have spurred an ironhanded approach towards coal among global leaders," Rivera said in the same statement.
A major concern with both nuclear and coal power plants is that once the plants are built, they are likely to be around for a long time because the infrastructure is so costly to develop. Public pressure will be needed to ensure that these plants are closed as soon as clean energy sources become available.
· Here in the Philippines, our baseload power plants utilize natural gas, geothermal, coal and baseload hydro technologies. In Mindanao, baseload hydro constitutes 33 percent of the installed capacities, while CFPPs have a 31 percent share of the region's baseload capacity.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Coal for Power Plants. amount of coal available for use, coal fired plants can be continuously fueled in many years to come Known technologies.

· In terms of actual output, renewable energy technologies accounted for % or 21,609 gigawatthours out of a total of 101,609 gWh in 2020. This was lower than the % share in 2005, when renewables generated 18,609 gWh out of a total of 56,568 gWh. That was the first year when renewables were part of the power generation mix, with a ...
· Feb 01, 2011· Many industrial plants or manufacturing plants use coal energy to generate electricity because coal energy is an affordable source of energy Moreover, coal is very abundant even if it is nonrenewable because it has the largest reserve around the world There are many advantages and disadvantages of using coal energy to produce electricity
· Some of its advantages include reliability, affordability, abundance, known technologies, safety, and efficiency. Reliability: One of the greatest advantages of coal fired plants is reliability. Coal's ability to supply power during peak power demand either as base power or as offpeak power is greatly valued as a power plant fuel.
Advantages of Coal Energy Cheap energy source Reliable Abundance of coal Mature technology Can be converted into cleaner energy sources Easy to access raw materials Independent of weather conditions Storage is simple Sophistied infrastructure has been built around coal Many companies rely on coal as primary energy source
· The Philippines is highly dependent on coal as source for electricity generation. Coal power plants generated million MWh in 2017, making up half of the country's power generation mix. Renewable energy and natural gas power plants followed with respective shares of % and % to the country's gross power generation.
· A full scaleup of the plan in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam, aiming to retire 50% of the coal fleet over the next 10 to 15 years, could cut 200 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions ...
