This undated image provided by Trianel shows a crane unloading coal at the Trianel power plant in Luenen, western Germany. The Trianel power plant relies completely on coal imports, about half from the U.S. Soon, all of Germany’s coal-fired power plants will be dependent on imports, with the country scheduled to halt all coal mining in 2018 when government subsidies end. Coal mining’s demise in Germany comes as the country is experiencing a resurgence in coal-fired power, one which the U.S. increasingly has helped supply. (AP Photo/Trianel, Guenther Goldstein)
