Using game models, we study multiperiod coordination contract and model of coal-electricity supply chain under the condition of double price regulations to alleviate the price conflicts of coal and electricity enterprises. The study reveals that, in boom seasons of coal demand, the multiperiod coordination mechanism may not only reduce the price of thermal coal but also increase the fulfillment rate of thermal coal. Meanwhile, the ordering quantity of thermal coal is increased and the shortage probability of electricity supply is decreased. Thereby, the conflicts between coal and electricity are also alleviated effectively.
