What happens if the US stops new coal mine development?

Report summary

While the current US administration is attempting to change the narrative about the domestic coal market, little can likely be done to change its trajectory. We do not expect coal mine expansion will stop in the US, but we do believe it is a risk worth examining. Increasingly, financial institutions are limiting their current or future coal investments, which makes it difficult for coal miners to raise the capital necessary to construct or expand mining complexes.
