Join Colleagues and Industry Experts for the Foremost Coal Outlook Conference in Europe

This year is shaping up to be very interesting for the European coal market.

With carbon prices doubling since the last Nice conference in May 2017 to their highest in years, could Europe’s generators accelerate their closure programmes? Or was the cold snap in March which sent gas prices soaring, a warning shot, reminding utilities and governments alike that coal needs to remain in the generating mix?

At the same time, Europe’s coal buying patterns are shifting, both in terms of qualities and origins. Colombian coal is continuing to find its way into Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean, in part attracted by strong prices in the Pacific Basin. Additionally, cheaper U.S. origins are becoming an increasingly significant part of the blend on the continent.

But could the days of highly-discounted U.S. coals be numbered as Turkey looks to raise its threshold for sulphur, opening up a new and growing market for shippers on the other side of the pond?

The 17th Annual European Coal Outlook Conference by IHS Markit will flesh out these and many other issues in this engaging forum for discussion and analysis.

Join the industry in May to network, learn and analyze the key topics and business trends shaping the global coal market.
