U.S. Coal Exports to Germany May See Boost

The German government recently decided to increase electricity generation from coal-fired power plants in response to European sanctions against Russia.

Russia reduced its exports of natural gas to Germany in response to the sanctions.

An analysis published on the website of Trains magazine said the move opens opportunities for coal traffic from U.S. railroads that serve export terminals shipping coal to Europe.

The German move is designed to enable the country to conserve its existing natural gas ahead of next winter.

In recent years the United States has been the second largest supplier of coal to Germany, trailing Russia.

However, among the sanctions that European governments have leveled against Russia is a ban on Russian coal.
