European Association for Coal and Lignite (EURACOAL)

Warning! LobbyFacts is temporarily only showing data up to 19 September 2021. This is because from 20 September, the EU lobby register changed format and the register's secretariat is no longer providing complete and reliable daily data updates which LobbyFacts uses to keep up to date. This temporary problem has not affected LobbyFacts' archive facility, but for today's lobby data, please check the original EU lobby register. We hope the secretariat will remedy this soon, enabling us to launch a new improved and faster version of LobbyFacts.

Goals / Remit

EURACOAL's activities focus on the entire coal value chain: from prospecting, access to reserves, extraction, marketing and transport through to the use of coal at power stations, in the steel industry and in other energy-intensive industries as well as post-mining activities. Almost 20% of the electricity generated in the EU is coal-based. Members of EURACOAL undertake coal-related research that supports EU climate and energy policy. EURACOAL's objective is to highlight the important role that coal plays in securing energy supply within the EU and to contribute to an appropriate and reliable legal framework for coal extraction and use in Europe. EURACOAL actively promotes the importance of coal in a balanced energy mix, the added value provided by the coal industry at regional and national levels, and the need for safe working practices and environmental protection. EURACOAL recognises the need for a transition to clean and affordable energy. It is active with all EU institutions.
