  • Starting this week, German hard-coal-fired power stations are restarting operations.
  • Inland shipping routes taking coal by ship or train from the big ports to the power stations are at their limit.
  • The first operator to do so was the Mehrum plant in central Germany which belongs to Checz energy concern EPH and had been closed down at the end of 2021.
