In the Netherlands, at present, three major coal-bearing regions are known that in principal are accessible by conventional mining methods: Achterhoek, the Peel region (including Beatrix concession), and the remaining fields in South-Limburg. It is not possible to determine a general definition that identifies what fraction of a specific coal bearing area can be regarded as mineable.

Currently there are no exploration and development activities in order to investigate future coal exploitation by means of underground mining. All former shafts in South Limburg are sealed with concrete and filled. Virtually all surface facilities were pulled down. The shafts of the never completed State Mine Beatrix near Herkenbosch (Peel area) are conserved. These shafts are closed by means of heavy concrete lids. Re-opening of the other un-depleted “old” mines is unlikely, given both the extensive, predominantly urban, redevelopment and the complete disappearance of any coal related infrastructure, let alone the formidable water and subsidence problems. A fair safety distance to the old workings should be maintained in case of future exploitation of the remaining reserves.

In order to understand the profitability and the dynamics of competitive structure of the coal industry in the Netherlands, Taiyou Research presents a Porter's Five Forces Analysis of the Dutch Coal Industry.

Michael Porter's Five Forces Model is one of the most effective analytical model for understanding and analyzing the competitive landscape in an industry. The model analyzes the bargaining power of buyers and suppliers; the competitive rivalry in the industry; the threat of new entrants and the threat of substitutes for the particular industry – in this case, coal faces the threat of substitution from the various renewable energy sources that are fast becoming popular today.

In our report, apart from the Porter’s Five Forces Model Analysis of the industry, we also analyze the basics of coal, including the various uses and types of coal, how coal is formed, and many other factors impacting the global coal industry.
