About the Coal Importers Association e. V. (VDKi)
The Coal Importers Association e. V. (VDKi) represents the interests of the imported hard coal market in Germany. The German and European members come from the fields of power industry, industry, trade and logistics. The association currently has 42 members, whose plants consume about 80 % of the German hard coal requirement of around 47 million tonnes. Imported coal covers 100 % of Germany's coal requirements. The VDKi thus represents the majority of the hard coal market in Germany with a financial volume in the billions. The VDKi regularly examines the significance of the global hard coal markets for the European and German import hard coal markets, points out prospects for the further development of imports and regularly publishes statistics on German hard coal imports and prices.
