Coal power is an electricity source that provides enough electricity to meet certain demands and is also inexpensive. Electricity has been one to the top demands of the world since the turn of history. . demands have been higher and higher that·s why people tend to find alternatives to produce more electricity and meet these demands. therefore the founding of coal power plants. One of these discovered alternatives is burning coal in high heat. Through the years.
and the efficiency of modern coal fired power plants is high. and produces high energy upon combustion helping in locomotion and in the generation of electricity and various other forms of energy. Coal is a relatively cheap energy source. Coal can be easily transported to the power stations. The technology is well understood.Coal can be found in lots of places in the world. Easily combustible. .
Most coal fired power stations have dedicated rail links to supply the coal. Widely and easily distributed all over the world. . Comparatively inexpensive due to large reserves and easy accessibility. so long as you can get large quantities of fuel to it. A fossil-fuelled power station can be built almost anywhere.

Coal that is used for the coal-fired power plants in the Philippines is either imported or sourced locally (in Semirara). . The country is still reliant on ´high CO2emittingµ coal-fueled power plants because electricity generated from these plants is still cheaper compared to some of the indigenously fueled power plants in the country.
The coal industry has never been so robust than these past three years. . and exploration contracts convert to production agreements. From a historical yearly average of 1. Increased production is expected in the near future as new contracts get to full blown production. Renewed interests in coal mining improved as coal contractors as well as small-scale permittees increase. Consumption likewise. local coal production doubled to 3 million MT in those three years.5 million MT. increase steadily as new coal-fired power plants are installed and industries switch to coal because of the highly volatile price of oil.
