Abstract:     
Coal combustion contributes significantly to anthropogenic greenhouse has emissions. This paper examines the role of coal in power generation in Australia, the growth rate in demand for power, and the contribution of coal in the future to the energy mix, in two situations: (1) with, and (2) without changes to taxation and associated policies. The present tax status of coal producers and power generators and consumers is evaluated. Following this the potential impact upon emission levels of such instruments as a carbon tax and an emissions trading scheme (neither of which are presently applied in Australia) is discussed.
