Alberta produces coal for both metallurgical appliions and as a thermal fuel. Alberta is a significant user of thermal coal for electrical power generation, and coalfired generation represents a major portion of global electrical supply. Canada derives approximately 20% of its electricity from coal.

Coal facts Natural Resources Canada

Coal is an organically derived material. It is formed from the remains of decayed plant material compacted into a solid through millions of years of chemical changes under pressure and heat. Its rich carbon content gives coal most of its energy content. When coal is burned in the presence of air or oxygen, heat energy is released.
