About Montenegro

Montenegro has no coal plants under construction or in planning. Montenegro’s electricity needs are met by a combination of hydro and coal-fired power plants. The 225-megawatt (MW) Pljevlja power station is Montenegro’s only coal-fired power plant. Montenegro is a small coal producer and consumer. Montenegro is a member of the Powering Past Coal Alliance (PPCA) and has pledged to phase out coal power use by 2035. In September 2021, Montenegro was part of the coalition of national governments that launched the No New Coal Power Compact, which requires supporters to cease permitting of new coal power plants and end new construction of unabated coal plants by the end of 2021.
