- Peabody President Delivers Keynote to American Coal Council
August 30, 2017
Earlier this month, Peabody President Glenn Kellow gave the keynote speech at the American Coal Council Coal Market Strategies Conference. Kellow discussed the challenges that the industry faces and how each company can work together to preserve the enormous advantage of baseload generation from coal – for affordability and reliability of the U.S. grid. He proposed five key actions under “A Path Forward”: press pause on coal plant retirements through a two-year moratorium to protect reliability; level the playing field between baseload and renewables; create a diverse portfolio standard at the state level; continue making coal generation more competitive; and advance HELE technology today and carbon capture over time.
