As stated by the U.S. department of energy, coal provides the energy for half of the electricity used in the states today. While we have a large supply of coal in the country, efforts are still being made to find and use coal efficiently. In the future, it is believed coal plants will be made to be emission-free. If they can become more sustainable and eco-friendly, perhaps coal plants will provide for more of America’s energy than they do today.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, for 2008, the last year for which statistics are available, the United States produced 1,171,483 short tons of coal, which can generate 23.856 quadrillion BTUs of energy.
