Even in the third decade of the 21st century, large power plants are still responsible for more than half of the electricity production in Europe and US. They predominantly use fossil fuels in their work, which results in the emission of pollutants into the air, soil and water. In addition to the production of electric energy, fossil fuels, including coal, are used for industrial purposes. Although the use of coal, especially in the countries of the European Union, is in constant decline, there is space for additional reduction. Through this paper, the authors wanted to present the completely actual situation of emissions of CO2 from thermal power plants in Europe and US, which have used coal for electricity production. Also, this paper provides date and analyses of electricity generation from coal. The CO2 emission was analyzed in relation to the installed capacity, as well as compared to the energy produced and supplied to the system. The analysis of CO2 emissions in past few decades and the projection and targets for next 30 years has been showed. The trends in emissions compared to 1990 are rather different for EU and US. In the countries of the EU-27, there is a noticeable trend of decreasing CO2 emissions since 1990, while in the USA, during the 90s of the last century, CO2 emissions grew intensively with a peak that maintained its values in the first decade of the 21st century. Only in the second decade of 21st century, emissions of coal fired power plants in the USA have been continuously decreasing with the lowest value in 2020, which also coincides with the lowest emission value in the EU-27.
