Despite the recent increase in natural gas production, data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration shows that coal still accounts for 39% of the net electricity generated in 2013 and remains the dominant fuel in the U.S.
The newly updated U.S. Coal Activity wall map, 2014 edition, displays the principle components of this thriving industry from the source-region to the coal-fueled power plant to the export terminal. Gain an understanding of the various transportation methods used to transport coal. View proposed plant locations in relation to existing coal source regions, coal mines, power plants, and major coal export locations. Assess the state of clean coal by identifying plants with SO2 scrubber technology as well as coal-related carbon sequestration projects.
Also available digitally with enhanced content or the printed map can be purchased with the digital content in a discounted package.
Key Coal Industry Features:
- Coal-fired power plants sized by average coal consumption, colored by primary coal source and shaped by SO2 scrubber status. Plants are labeled with the plant name and primary coal transportation mode.
- Active coal mines uniquely symbolized by mine type - surface vs. underground - sized by average coal production
- Coal-hauling railroads uniquely symbolized by ownership
- Coal producing regions colored by primary coal-type
- Planned/under construction coal-fueled plants labeled with operator code, plant name, transportation mode
- Major coal terminals
- Carbon sequestration locations
- Coal docks
- Major rivers & water bodies
- Major cities and state capitals
- Detailed inset maps of Northern Appalachia, Central Appalachia, Illinois Basin and Alaska
