  • The country currently boasts of about one billion metric tonnes of coal reserves, which have been fully exploited and developed by successive administrations in the electricity energy mix.
  • Others are increased employment and human resources development, increased capacity utilization of existing industries, increased national income through taxes, reduced deforestation and prevention of desert encroachment in the northern parts of the country.
  • The industrial revolution started in Great Britain, and it was powered by coal, but Britain will phase out coal by 2025, yet Japan is building 22 new coal plants to replace power output lost by the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
