Coal accounted for nearly two thirds of the country's energy production in 2012. China has committed to supercritical and ultra-supercritical pulverized coal combustion technologies in coal-fired power plants. The country had been a net exporter of coal for more than two decades. In 2012, coal imports surged 13.3% while exports decreased 19.3%.

China is expected to see slower growth in coal demand in the short-term, which is in line with the country's economic growth. Railway freight traffic is projected to reach 2.6bn tons by 2015. In 2012, benchmark prices for Chinese coal dropped from RMB 800 per ton in January to RMB 635 per ton in October.
