The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) has launched an interactive, online Coal Data Browser that provides comprehensive government information and statistics about the US coal sector.
The Coal Data Browser gives users easy access to a large range of coal information from EIA’s electricity and coal surveys. It also allows users to filter through data from the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and through coal trade information from the US Census Bureau.
Powerful data access
EIA administrator, Adam Sieminski, commented: "EIA's Coal Data Browser provides users with a level of access to coal data they've never had before. This powerful data access and visualisation tool provides 'one-stop shopping' for information about coal."
Users of the browser are able to:
- Map coal imports and exports by country and by the US ports that handle the coal
- Map where mines send their coal and where power plants obtain their coal
- Break down coal receipts by sulfur content, ash content, heat content, and mine
- See changes in coal prices
- Cross-link mine-level data pages with EIA's US Energy Mapping System to provide another route to discover data on all of the nation's active coal mines
- Track changes in coal worker employment in specific states
