Abstract

The paper reviews the prospects of global and Russian coal generation in terms of its share in the power energy structure in the context of current economic, ecological and technological challenges. The challenges include climate change and transition to low carbon energy industry that lead to strict ecological requirements for power station emissions, growing number of renewable energy sources implemented with government support programs and multiple cost reduction, growing competition with (cheaper) gas. It is demonstrated that technological development plays a decisive role in survival of coal power station in the world as well as in Russia. There are a number of ways to preserve coal power generation such as modernization of heat power stations, building of new ones that utilize clean coal technologies (ССТ and HELE), replacement of boilers with mini-heating stations, construction of energy-technological complexes. We conclude that Siberia has no viable alternatives to the coal energy. In view of lack of higher mid-term demand for electrical energy, new large coal stations are not likely to appear unless some generated energy is transmitted to South-East Asia
