Coal prices and Indonesia’s energy transition: IEEFA Report

A lack of new coal supply may mean coal prices continue to stay elevated, putting the onus of energy transition on potential buyers. In the event that there is conflict resolution, coupled with the EU’s commitment to decarbonize, coal prices are likely to normalize from current levels longer term. Coal companies should not miss the opportunity now to diversify away from coal before the cost to transition gets higher.
