Yes. definitely! There are no operational coal mines in France as of 2004, but they continue to import large amounts of coal. Half of the coal imported is used for energy-generation (with the other half being utilized by steel industry.) New coal-fired plants are still being proposed, with a new focus on “clean coal technology.”
Note, however, that while France does have some coal-fired plants producing electricity, 79% of France’s electricity comes from nuclear power, and 12% comes from hydropower. So coal’s contribution in France is pretty small — the remaining 9% will include coal, oil, geothermal, solar, wind, and anything else.
