Investment in the coal does not decrease

coal might be a source of energy particularly polluting, the investments in mines and thermal power plants continues to grow, notes the international energy Agency (IEA). In 2019, the amounts invested in the supply of coal have reached $ 90 billion, or 15% more than in 2018, says the report on global investments in energy.

coal suffers as the other energy sources of the pandemic Covid-19. In 2020, the amount invested in the supply of coal will have decreased by 25%, provides the IEA. But this will not create an "existential threat," says Fatih Birol, director general of the agency, an affiliate of the OECD. The projects of creation of new coal-fired power plants may have declined by over 80% since 2015, the overall fleet continues to grow. And more than a third of the electricity produced in the world is still from coal or lignite.

The Middle kingdom remains, by far, the country most invested in this resource, little green. It concentrates almost half of the production and demand of coal and it is the world's largest importer. While investments in new coal-fired power plants are expected to decline by 11% in the world by 2020, this is not the case in China. The approvals granted by Beijing to the plants during the first quarter of 2020 represent a capacity two times higher than those granted on the whole of the year 2019, the report said. The Middle kingdom accounts for two thirds of worldwide investment in new coal-fired power plants. As for the mines, the arrangements for openings or expansions by 2019 aiming for a capacity of 201 million tonnes per year, or ten times more than in 2017.

China was the first hit by the epidemic, coronaviruses, it is she who has restarted as the first in its industry. In spite of the ambitions set out in the renewables, the IEA, in its annual flagship report on the energy outlook estimated that coal will still represent 70% of the electricity mix in china in 2025, compared with 78% in 2018. And the cake - consumption - inflating during this period, in absolute value, the tons of this fossil fuel burned in the power plants will have definitely increased. Unless the economic crisis of the Covid-19 is more profound and longer lasting than anticipated.

The chinese are laughing many of the Europeans who seem to demonstrate a naivete puzzling case.
What interests the Chinese is to dump the solar low-cost on the rest of the world. This, under the guise of ecological principles. The only problem in china is the pollution of the big cities in China, that is why they are trying to impose in China to the electric car. The emissions of CO2, they don't care completely. The coal still has leases days in front of him.
