Approximate Generator Coal Burnt

NEM-Review 6 (Silver) includes the new calculated dataset, approximate generator coal burnt. The coal burnt by a generator unit is the rate (tonnes/hour) at which the unit is consuming coal within a trading period.

Coal burnt is calculated as: Energy Use / Coal Quality

This calculation is relevant for coal-fired units but will also return an answer of “0 tonnes” for any other units for completeness of your calculations.
