Table description


This table shows the supply and the consumption of hard coal, lignite + BKB (Braunkohlenbriketts) and coke-oven cokes. Supply is calculated as production plus recovered products plus imports minus exports plus net stock changes. This calculation of the supply results in the amount of hard coal, lignite + BKB (Braunkohlenbriketts) and coke-oven cokes consumed. This consumption is divided into consumption by energy companies, coke oven plants, industry, iron and steel and other consumers. This table is a redesign.

Data available from: January 2015.

Status of the figures:
- up to and including 2020 definite.
- 2021 are revised provisional.
- 2022 provisional.

Changes as of January 31st 2023:
Provisional figures for November 2022 have been added.

Changes as of December 27th 2022:
Provisional figures for October 2022 have been added.

Changes as of December 15th 2022:
Figures for 2020 are definite.
Figures from 2015 until 2021 have been revised.
The revision includes the years from 2015 until and including 2019 and are about a technical adjustment in the method of calculation to determine the import and export of Coke-oven cokes from 2015 until and including 2021. Because of that the import and export has changed with a maximum of 10 million kg per year. This equals with about 0,5 percent of the consumption. The production and consumption of Coke-oven cokes remain unchanged.


When will new figures be published?
Provisional figures: in the second month after the month under review.
Revised provisional figures : not later than in the following December.
Definite figures: not later than in December of the second following year.
