Many European countries tried to reduce their reliance on Russia's natural gas and oil export. However, it made these countries increase the use of coal to generate electricity.

The Netherlands planned to lift the cap on electric generation by coal and other fossil fuels. The limit was a third of the country's total power output. Besides that, some other European countries, including Germany and Austria, also canceled the restriction on the production of coal-fired power stations to secure energy supply.

In fact, to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, the EU committed that the greenhouse gas emissions should be cut by at least 55% by 2030. Resuming the use of coal for power generation might step back energy transition.
