For a creating economy like India, guaranteed and moderate supply of Energy is the prime pre-essential for accomplishing financial development and sought level of human improvement.
In India, it is Coal which is guaranteeing this since it represents right around 55% of nation's Commercial Energy needs and more than 70% of Power Generation.
Going ahead, Renewables will have a greater part to play than what they are doing today however Coal is anticipated to keep up its predominant position for verging on next two decades. This additionally bodes well following the nation is honored with immense Coal Resources though it is fairly inadequate in other Fossil Fuels like Oil and Gas and improvement of Renewables is going to require some investment.
The nation has an eager objective of guaranteeing "24 x 7 supply of Power for All" and for accomplishing this target, the Coal creation program has been quickened to 1580 plant tons for every annum to be accomplished by 2019-20.
It is cheering to note that the spell of stagnation which had injured the Indian Coal Industry till around two years back has been broken and the Industry has accomplished an exceptional development rate of 8.4% in 2014-15. All the more enthusiastically, the way things have advanced, it is liable to improve in the present year by accomplishing a development rate of more than 9%.
The Industry has along these lines made parcel of progress however parts more stays to be finished. Need of the day is to investigate where and how the Industry has achieved where it is and chalk out the Roadmap for supporting the development force that has been created.
India Energy Forum (IEF), the chief research organization of the Country on Energy issues together with Mining, Geological and Metallurgical Institute of India (MGMI), Delhi Chapter the most seasoned association of Earth Scientists in India and Indian School of Mines Alumni, Association (ISMAA), Delhi Chapter, has been sorting out a Biennial Summit on Coal for 10 years now. In perspective of the present circumstance and progressing advancements in the Industry, it is chosen to give the sixth Coal Summit due this year to the topic of "Indian Coal - Sustaining The Momentum". This Summit will be composed on sixth and seventh the September 2016 at Hotel Le Meridian, New Delhi.
Challenges in Coal Sector are numerous as are the impediments which are shifted in nature. The target of the Summit would be to distinguish them and investigate at and chalk out techniques to meet them. The whole array of Coal Mining exercises beginning from Exploration and including Mining advances, change in Infrastructural offices, overhauling of Mining Equipment and help of leeway procedures especially those identified with Environment and Forest and Land Acquisition and R&R and above all Mine security will must be tended to.
Applicable issues to be stayed upon have been distinguished as under:
Modernizing Coal Exploration Technology;
Assisting statutory clearances like those related Forest and Environment
Enrolling proactive participation of the State Govts in matters of Land Acquisition and R&R
Change in Infrastructural offices especially Rail availability for un-created/immature coalfields
Upgradation of Mining Equipment
Change in Underground creation with modernisation of Technologies
Effect of instability in International Coal Prices on Domestic Coal
Improvement of Captive Coal Blocks
Enhancing accessibility of Indigenous Coking Coal
Making Coal Mining and Coal Utilization more environment well disposed with specific accentuation on Coal Beneficiation
Coal Demand Side Management
Effective association of an Event of this nature and greatness will require the dynamic backing of the considerable number of partners in Coal Sector like Coal Producers, Coal Consumers, Regulatory Authorities all in all and that of Ministry of Coal, Ministry of Power, Ministry of Environment and Forests, Ministry of Steel, Indian Railways, concerned State Governments specifically. This backing has as of now been looked for and guaranteed.
