Coal consumption

Lignite and coal consumption (> 95% of lignite) increased rapidly between 2000 and 2007 (+3%/year, on average) and, in general, has been decreasing since then because of the commissioning of a new nuclear unit in 2007. It fell by 24% in 2013, due to a lower coal-fired power generation (higher...
