The Market for Coal Power Plants in Europe

Investments in constructing new coal power plants are increasing again in Europe. Between 2012 and 2020, approximately about 80 power plant units will be newly constructed or replaced, which is almost twice as many as in the prior period of equal length. On average, the new power plant units will be twice as large. Hence, the capacities for electricity generation from coal to be constructed from 2012 to 2020 will be about four times as large as those constructed between 2003 and 2011.

At the same time, the share of coal at the electricity industry's energy mix decreases. At present, only 30 per cent of the European electricity is produced by incinerating coal – with a clear downward tendency. Generating electricity from coal is inexpensive, however, it is being criticised, mainly due to high CO2 emissions. Thus, most countries' energy strategies will more and more focus on renewable energies and gas-fired power plants in the future.

Nevertheless, constructing coal power plants is booming. This is mainly due to two reasons: Europe's coal power plants are on average 34 years old. Some of them will be shut down in the READ MORE >
