Energy planning from a global perspective sometimes overlooks constraints which occur on a smaller geographic level. This communication presents an example of constraints which arise when coal scenarios, based on global modelling, are applied to specific coal regions in the USA and USSR. It was found that coal production and use may be constrained in certain regions by limited coal reserves as well as insufficient surface water during drought years.
