The European Power Market in 2020

Coal generation fell 20% in 2020, and is now half that of 2015. Coal generation – hard coal and lignite – fell to 365 terawatt-hours in 2020 a fall of 48% since 2015. That is a remarkable achievement and is equivalent to around 320 million tonnes less CO2 per year, which is about 7% of Europe’s GHG emissions in 2020. Lignite generation fell 18% in 2020, its biggest fall since at least 2000; but once again this was less of a fall than hard coal generation, which is now substantially below lignite generation.
