Report summary

Competition between coal and gas generation has not historically been a feature of Asian power markets. The wide differential between Asian coal and gas prices and the lack of flexibility in power markets has hindered large scale fuel switching. The price differential has recently narrowed and with looming gas oversupply likely to push Asian spot LNG prices down further could the economic basis for coal to gas switching become a reality?
