Russia's strengthening trade with India may provide some relief on the coal front. 6 new Russian Nuclear plants were recently signed for by India, and Yamal LNG may lower the cost of natural gas, making it increasingly competitive with coal.

The new Russia-China pipeline is due to be operational before the end of this year, and costs to China are said to be low. More gas = less coal?

Trump's attempts to isolate Iran will also serve to lower energy prices for those bold enough to make the purchase.

NordStream 2 is being constructed and may help to ween Germany from her coal consumption addiction.


Regarding Indian energy scenario-

Russian nuclear plants signed for 6 plants. 2 already commissioned. 2 - construction in progress.
other planned sites face stiff local resistance for many years and is no starter.

India is investing heavy in renewables- Wind, Solar and also in hydro electric projects

but overall base plants are mostly coal and this will increase in coming years if more nuclear and hydro plants are not started.
LNG may provide breather in long term as well.
