Inhalt

Abundant, affordable and available: in the EU, 88% of our energy reserves lie in coal beds.
Competitive energy:
without inter-fuel competition from coal, we would be faced with much higher energy prices for industrial and residential electricity.
Base-load power generation:
given the intermittency of renewables, coal and other conventional fuels will be needed for many years to come.
Quality jobs and wealth creation: coal is a large and mature industry that employs over one quarter of a million people in well-paid jobs, and many more at the suppliers of equipment and materials.
Secure energy:
in 2013, the EU spent €500 billion on energy imports – 4% of GDP compared with just 1.5% in 2002 – a burden that coal can reduce.
Clean energy:
the latest coal plants cut CO2 emissions by 30% or more; sulphur dioxide emissions have fallen 80% since 1990 and other pollutant emissions have been massively cut since the 1980s.
Flexible energy:
coal- and gas-fired power plants are equally capable of balancing the intermittent output from wind turbines and solar PV panels.
Sustainable energy:
by embracing new technologies, coal and other energy sources have a bright future – all will be needed to meet the forecast growth in demand.
A 3-step strategy:
EURACOAL calls for state-of-the-art technologies to be deployed today, research carried out in readiness for tomorrow so that CCS can be deployed the day after tomorrow.
