The total available quantities of coal from domestic coal production, net imports and stocks in 2023 are planned in the amount of 8.051 million tons of oil equivalent. Of this amount, the largest amount of coal will be used for the coal-fired power plants 7.8 million tons of oil equivalent

Coal for coal-fired power plants includes the production of electricity and thermal energy 7.212 million tons of oil equivalent, consumption for coal processing in the dryer 0.1 million tons of oil equivalent and cokes consumption for blast furnaces 0.517 million tons of oil equivalent The plan is to consume 14 percent more coal than the estimated consumption for 2022 for the production of electricity and thermal energy.

In 2023 it is planned to produce less than 36.8 million tons of coal in Serbia. By far the most coal should be produced from surface mining 36.18 million tons.
