About 90 percent of Polish energy comes from coal. The annual coal production is approx. 70-80 million tons of hard coal and approx. 60-65 million tons of brown coal. Polish lignite mining is in the world forefront and brown coal-fired power plants produce about 35 percent of the cheapest electricity.
