Report summary

On 5 April China's Ministry of Environmental Protection announced new regulations restricting coal use in built up areas. The three tiered regulation bans the use of coal with more than 10% ash in boilers of a certain size or outright. The new measures are a sign environmental policy is likely to put more pressure on coal in the long term. However China does not have sufficient reserves of the specified coal so switching to gas will become increasingly attractive.
