Thermal coal in a carbon-conscious world: the IEA 450 Scenario


Thermal coal in a carbon-conscious world: the IEA 450 Scenario

Report summary

The call for a low-carbon economy has grown louder since the COP21 accord in Paris in December 2015. The world is becoming increasingly conscious of the potential harm caused by carbon emissions but has yet to agree on a clear path towards reducing those emissions. In this insight, we examine the impact of the adoption of the IEA's New Policies Scenario (NPS) and its 450 Scenario on our latest forecast of global thermal coal supply, demand and prices.
