Ranking the total coal consumption by country, from highest to lowest.
Coal is now included as part of the GFP index formula due to its value in energy production for many countries. For the purposes of the GFP ranking, coal consumption is applied as a penalty to each nation, the higher its consumption the worse effect on a theoretical war effort. Coal consumption can be offset by the coal production value and this is factored in along with a given nation's proven coal reserves.
Data presented on this list is through 2023. Values are presented in MT (Metric Tons).
