BEIJING ( TheStreet) -- China is the largest consumer of coal in the world, both in terms of power generation and in terms of supplying coal to the coking industry for making steel. Despite all the progress being made in clean tech areas, such as solar and wind, coal is and will continue to be the predominant source of energy in China for the foreseeable future.The economic and stock market rebound over the past year has translated directly into massive gains in the coal industry. Continued growth in China over the coming years makes coal an attractive investment opportunity. Currently the three best ways to play coal in China are Yanzhou Coal (YZC), Puda Coal (PUDA) and, the best in my opinion, Sino Clean Energy (SCLX.OB).
