Report summary

In recent days, the Trump administration has declined the opportunity to use executive powers to directly support the coal industry. The Administration issued a statement 22 August 2017 declining the request of some coal producers to place a 2-year moratorium on coal plant retirements. On 24 August 2017, the DOE released their "Staff Report on Electricity Markets and Reliability" which some thought would provide a strong endorsement of the value of baseload coal generation to the security and reliability of the grid.
