Prospects for coal in Eastern Europe

About this webinar

In some Eastern European countries, coal is responsible for only a small fraction of electricity generated, whereas others rely on it for most of their supply. Hard coal and lignite have long been the backbone of various national power sectors, providing secure, affordable electricity. However, there are environmental concerns and many units are now in need of refurbishment or replacement, ideally with modern high efficiency, low emission (HELE) plant.

The webinar will examine the situation regarding coal and its current and future potential for power generation in selected countries. Despite aspirations to replace coal power in the near term, there are sometimes few affordable alternatives available.
