Title: 2050 working assumption Coal Price 2010-2050 cost data point

Content: We have taken the widest range in the DECC forecasts.

We have not assumed that the cost range gets any wider 2030-2050.

As a simplifying assumption, we have assumed that range is constant rather than expanding over time. This seems plausible due to the past volatility.

As a simplifying assumption, we have treated domestic production of coal as costing the same as imports.

XVI.b Balancing imports costs and XV.b Indigenous fossil-fuel production explain how this assumption is used in the 2050 pathways project.
