Lusatian lignite mining district

02 December 2020, Brandenburg, Jänschwalde: Behind a lake, steam rises from the cooling towers of the Jänschwalde lignite-fired power plant of Lausitz Energie Bergbau AG (LEAG). The lignite is mined in the nearby Jänschwalde opencast mine. The lignite-fired power plant is scheduled to go off the grid by the end of 2028. Block A is to be shut down as early as 2025.
