Our recent Insight, "US coal-fired retirements: high risk to low sulphur production" analysed 2012 coal deliveries to plants that will, or are expected to, experience some level of coal-fired unit retirement by 2021. In this Insight we refine our analysis to consider retirements at the unit level and provide an assessment of supplier risk on that basis.
