Coal in the UK – 2019  

The UK consumed 7.9 million tonnes of coal in 2019, including 3.0 million tonnes in the steel industry, 2.9 million tonnes in power stations and 1.5 million tonnes in other industry.

Coal imports to the UK were 6.8 million tonnes, a reduction of 33% on the previous year. UK coal output was 16% less than the previous year at 2.2 million tonnes.

Coal-fired power stations produced 2.1% of the UK’s electricity generation, a fall of 2.9 percentage points on 2018 (gas 40.9%,  nuclear 17.4%, renewables 36.9% and others 2.7%).

UK Coal Imports Complement UK Production

Although consumption has declined dramatically in recent years, coal remains an important component of the UK’s energy mix, especially in markets other than power generation, with around three quarters of the nation’s requirements being imported to supplement the UK’s coal production.

CoalImP – the Association of Coal Importers and Producers- believes that imported coal complements indigenous supply and that both are secure and essential parts of the UK energy balance. Coal resources are plentiful, distributed more evenly around the globe than oil or gas, and coal is capable of being transported and stored safely.
