Europe is the leading continent when it comes to the phasing out of coal as an energy source.
in the european energy sector declined year-on-year, to their lowest levels to date, and the last year, the coal at an even faster rate, according to a recent report carried out by two think tanks; a british Sandbag, and in German Agora Energiewende.
the Solar power and wind power has now overtaken coal as a source of electricity generation in Europe.
Last year, 18 per cent of the generated kilowattimmarna from the sun and wind, while 15% came from coal. Just five years ago, it was the carbon of a is twice as large a share of the production of electricity, as they are two of the major renewable options are made.
on average, reduced carbon, with a total of 24 per cent in the union, coal, 32, and which of the 16.
a Fall of coal, in turn, is pressed down, the emission of carbon dioxide from the EUROPEAN union countries in the production of electricity. Last year, they fell by 12 per cent, which is the largest annual reduction ever recorded in north america since at least the 1990's.
behind the spurt in the coal crisis is that the price of emission allowances has begun to rise sharply, as the two think tanks.
a few years ago, it was criticised that the european emission trading scheme for the cost of dropping out is low. It will cost approximately the same as a cup of coffee at a café, less than three million, to buy the right to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide.
But then the bottom was seven years ago, the price of emission rights will soon increase ten-fold, and the site's Carbon Tracker believes that it can be a little over double the price now and 2030.
the coal-fired power plants worth less and less.
the current transformation of the troubles. The German ”wende” get away from not just coal but also nuclear power, toward renewable energy sources is mentioned, but the Uk's proportion, the decrease is even more dramatic. Where the percentage of kolgenererad of electricity plummeted from 42 per cent eight years ago to just 2 per cent in the previous year. The uk's carbon dioxide emissions already in 2017, the lowest level in 130 years.
Last year, the seven countries of the union the whole kolfria, such as Sweden. Poland was the coal still, for as much as 70 per cent of the total electricity generation (although there is a decrease). In Estonia, however, the share of coal power is between 2018 and 2019 from 1% to 5%.
If the current plans are adhered to, there will be 20 of the 28 EUROPEAN union member countries (27 in the Uk have gone out to have completely carbon-free electricity generation by 2030. They are two of the latest countries to submit a pledge, this is the republic of Hungary and the republic of Greece.<
