For their daily news broadcast, EditieNL (part of RTL Nieuws) interviewed Michiel Bron - PhD Candidate in energy history - on the rescaling of Dutch coal-fired power plants in response to limited gas deliveries to Europe from Russia, the rising coal prices, and the possible similarities between the debates over the closure of coal mines during the oil crises in the 1970s and the closure of gas fields in Groningen today.
