Changes as of December 15th 2022:
Figures from 2015 up to and including 2019 have been revised. The most relevant adaptation is a small change of imports of hard coal and lignite of several million kg (maximum 0.1%) on a yearly basis. This table has been revised to ensure consistency with other StatLine tables dealing with coal. Also figures of 2020 and 2021 have been updated.
