According to Statistics Finland's preliminary data, the consumption of hard coal increased by 31 per cent last year in comparison with the previous year. The consumption of hard coal as a fuel in the generation of electricity and heat amounted to 3.3 million tonnes, corresponding to 81 petajoules in energy content. The large annual change was primarily due to the record low use of hard coal in the previous year. Despite the growth, 30 per cent less hard coal was used last year than the average for the 2000s.
