According to Statistics Finland’s preliminary data, the consumption of hard coal grew by 34 per cent in 2013 from one year before. Its total consumption as fuel in the generation of electricity and heat amounted to 4.5 million tonnes, corresponding to over 114 PJ (petajoules) in energy content. The use of hard coal grew particularly in the third quarter.
