    The International Energy Agency (IEA) notes in its 2005 review of energy policy in Belgium that coal provides approximately 11% of the electricity generated and that, while the country has domestic coal resources, the last coal mine closed in 1993 due to high costs of production.

    The IEA notes that in terms of energy supply "apart from the introduction and growth of nuclear, the most significant trend has been a reduction in the use of coal". It also notes that "over the last 30 years, coal consumption has dropped by nearly 70%, from 5.7 to 1.8 Mtoe". (Mtoe is the acronym for 'million tonnes of oil equivalent', a measure that seeks to standardise the energy content of different fuels based on the amount of energy released by burning one tonne of crude oil).
