Indian Coal Demand Continues to Grow

State-owned Coal India Ltd.’s (CIL) Q3 2022 production volumes increased substantially due to higher power demand, according to the Economic Times. The world’s largest coal miner’s quarterly coal production climbed 10.6% over the previous quarter to 139.2 million metric tons. Power demand is growing at its fastest pace in at least 38 years. The situation has forced India to reverse a policy to eliminate coal imports and reopen closed mines.
