  • Austria will receive less gas for the fourth day in a row, Russia’s Gazprom announced on Sunday, prompting an emergency government meeting to signal a return to coal power which the country phased out in 2020.
  • To fill these stores ahead of next winter, the Austrian government decided on a set of measures following an emergency meeting late on Sunday.
  • The coal-fired power plant has a sticker capacity of 832 MW of electricity and 400 MW of heat to be used for district heating.
