Indian Coal Energy



Nearly 63 percent of the India’s total energy requirements are met from coal. The available coal reserves in India are sufficient to meet our needs for at least another 100 years. India now ranks 3rd amongst the coal producing countries in the world.
 
Taking the above facts into consideration it is obvious that coal is one of the potential energy substitutes in India.
This section provides status and trends on Indian coal energy
