After three years of decline, global coal consumption began to rise again, up 1%. Driven by renewed industrial activity, consumption grew in China, Russia, India and Indonesia. However, it fell in Europe, particularly in Germany (where efforts to coal reduce consumption are ongoing) and Poland (where consumption has stabilized since 2014).
