How to Calculate the Coal Quantity Used in a Power Plant ...

 · Coal trader''s web sites give base prices in the international market. We take a coal price of around 65 $ / Ton. The cost of coal consumed by 100 MW power plant is (53.8 x 65) 3497 $ /hr. A 100 MW unit produces 100,000 units of electricity. So the cost of coal per unit of electricity is (3497/100,000) 3.5 cents per unit.

Coal production and consumption statistics

The 2019 hard coal consumption of the EU is estimated to have reached 176 million tonnes. Production of hard coal in the EU has decreased almost continuously from 1990 and this long-term decrease has been more severe than for consumption. In 2019, the EU production was 65 million tonnes, 77 % less than the 277 million tonnes of 1990.
