Home / News / Coal use in Europe on its way out — report Coal generation in Europe is falling and will continue to do so due to competition from cleaner energy sources, such as natural gas and renewables, as well as governments efforts to cut emissions, a study by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) argues.

  Coal reserves are reported by coal types: bituminous and anthracite (46%), subbituminous (41%), and lignite (12%). Appalachia is the largest producer of bituminous and anthracite coal, while large quantities of subbituminous coal are produced in the Powder River Basin (covering much of Wyoming, as well as parts of Montana). Texas leads lignite. Coal consumption increased by % in , the fastest growth since Growth was again driven by Asia Pacific (71 Mtoe), and particularly by India (36 Mtoe). This region now accounts for over three quarters of global consumption, while 10 years ago it represented two thirds. The growth in coal demand was the second consecutive year of.

Coal to gas switching in Europe In October , EU leaders agreed on common climate and energy targets for These included a 40% reduction in GHG emissions relative to levels, along with targets for renewables deployment and energy efficiency.

Coal in Europe describes the use of coal as an energy fuel in Europe. Coal includes hard coal, black coal, and brown coal. Coal production in Europe is falling, and imports exceed production. There is, however, growing controversy in Europe over the use of coal, as many denounce it for reasons such as health risks and links to global warming.

The Top Coal Producing Countries in Europe Russia. Russia is one of the leading coal producers and consumers in Europe and the world.

With the second largest coal deposits in the world, Russia produces about million tons of coal, about two-thirds of which is consumed domestically. While it is unlikely that coal in Europe will be completely phased out in the short to medium term, coal producers and exporters will be increasingly relying on growing economies Asia, rather than on high income OECD economies in Western Europe.

The IEA expects India to more than double its coal consumption by Commercial, technical and legal difficulties – alongside a series of major political scandals – have held up the expansion of India’s mining industry.

That means that while India produces a lot of coal, it’s unlikely to be able to increase production quickly enough. The history of coal mining in the United States goes back to the s, when the Hopi Indians used coal. [citation needed] The first commercial use came inwithin the Manakin-Sabot area of Richmond, was the dominant power source in the United States in the late s and early s, and although in rapid decline it remains a significant source of energy in The role of coal in keeping Europe's lights on shrank from 39% of generation in to 25% in Overall EU coal consumption fell by 21% between and However, in EU coal demand in Europe shot up by 9% from levels (though it remained below pre-financial crisis levels).

Europe’s use of the fossil fuel spiked last year after a long decline, and the expansion of lignite, or brown coal, mining has stunned some people in its path. Coal has long been a major source of electricity supply in both the US and Europe, but falling reliance on the fuel has pushed it behind natural gas in the US in (for this first time on annual basis).

On a grander scale, Pomeranz () has argued that coal was a crucial reason why the Industrial Revolution happened in Europe rather than in China.

In Europe, the trend is toward closing coal mines and switching to alternative energy sources. Only a few member-states of the European Union (EU) are still producing coal.

The EU produced million tonnes of coal inof which 72% ( million tonnes) was from Poland. 2 Other EU countries produced small quantities of coal (see Table 1).

The British Coal Corporation (BCC) is a state-owned undertaking, which has had a virtual monopoly in the output of coal in the United Kingdom since just after World War II. Though still among the largest coal producers in Western Europe, it has for many years been shrinking in.
