Although climate and environmental concerns have resulted in an energy policy that shies away from fossil fuels, demand for coal remains prevalent in many parts of the world, XMP Consulting senior coal analyst Xavier Prévost has said.

Speaking during the Coal Industry Day 2021 conference, which was hosted virtually on July 27, he noted that coal consumption decreased by 6.2 exajoules, or 4.2%, year-on-year in 2020, led by lower demand in India and the US.
