4th Edition of the India Coal Outlook Conference

4th Edition of the India Coal Outlook Conference

BigMint is pleased to announce the 4th Edition of the India Coal Outlook Conference, scheduled to be held from 22 – 23  August 2024 at The Leela Ambience, Gurugram, Haryana, India. This prestigious event will be organized concurrently with the 7th Indian Iron Ore & Pellet Summit and the 6th Indian DRI & Steel Conference.

The world’s largest developing economies and coal consumers, India and China, are currently navigating energy transition challenges by adopting ‘multiple energy pathways’ to mitigate carbon emissions, rather than opting for a complete coal phase-out.

India, as one of the fastest-growing economies globally, asserts that coal will remain a crucial energy source until at least 2040, serving as an affordable energy option with demand yet to peak. In this context, government authorities have consistently underscored the importance of coal.

The event will comprehensively address industry-wide transformations across the entire coal value chain, convening stakeholders to discuss regional supply-demand dynamics, carbon capture technologies, and regulatory impacts.

As the conference has evolved into a pivotal gathering for coal market specialists, attendees will have the opportunity to gain invaluable insights, network extensively, and contribute to shaping the future of the industry.
