“Hard coal-fired power generation in Germany under pressure”

Dow Jones Newswires

The subsidies for natural gas introduced with the new combined heat and power regulation (CHP) put pressure on German hard coal-fired power generation in 2016, according to German Coal Importer Association (VDKi), reports Dow Jones Newswires. Consumption by hard coal power plants fell 6 percent to 36.4 million tonnes of hard coal equivalents, and imports fell 4 percent or 2.5 million tonnes, compared to 2015.
