With the #SofiaDeclaration, the 6 #WesternBalkans countries have committed to #climateneutrality in 2050. To achieve this, a #lignite phase-out for power production is needed, ideally by 2040. To support the debate, we have developed 6 pathways (THREAD). #EUGreenDeal 1/12 The Future of Lignite in the Western Balkans
Where do we stand today? WB-6 power markets consist almost exclusively of two generation technologies: #lignite and #hydro. The share of either source varies considerably between the countries. 2/12 The Future of Lignite in the Western Balkans
Finding 1: 90 % of #lignite power plants in the #westernbalkans was put into operation 30 or more years ago. 40 % of the capacities are older than 40 years. The power plant park is in urgent need of #modernisation. 3/12

Il y a quelques jours, l'Allemagne a arrêté définitivement une unité de production électrique au #lignite (#charbon brun de mauvaise qualité).

Il s'agit de Niederaussem D, une unité de 300 MW.

Niederaussem D était une installation de petite capacité. Pourtant, depuis sa mise en service en 1968, cette unité a brûlé 129 millions de tonnes de lignite pour produire 115 TWh d'électricité.

Elle aura sur sa durée de vie émis environ 115 millions de tonnes de CO2 dans l'atmosphère. A titre de comparaison, c'est environ un quart des émissions domestiques totales françaises annuelles de gaz à effet de serre.

Savez-vous à quoi ressemble une mine de #lignite (#charbon brun) ?

Ci-dessous une vidéo par drone de celle de Hambach en Allemagne, exploitée par @RWE_AG.


Le #lignite est un #charbon brun hydraté de faible densité énergétique. Il sert principalement à produire de l'électricité, dans des centrales situées à proximité des mines.

La mine de Hambach a une superficie de 44 km2 (soit environ 6300 terrains de foot) et elle fournit 40 millions de tonnes de lignite par an.

Thread) Well there you go: the Minerals Council of Australia rep #BHP, #RioTinto & #Glencore couldn't resist responding to the Kerry Schott's comments that the push for new #coal plants in Australia doesn't stack up financially #lignite #auspol
2) On an earlier thread I thought the MCA would duck for now & respond in the future - but the #coal lobby in Australia are getting desperate & can see how fast the case for new coal globally is collapsing. Desperate times breed desperate PR #auspol
3) There’s a few things worth noting about their latest media release – the MCA have opted to focus their criticism on Kerry Schott
