Well France has 2 coal powered stations, both of which will be shut by 2021 and Holland has 5 stations that are still in use, but these have a combined output of just 3.3GW.

Also Holland is a major net importer of electricity, so any link to the UK is more likely to be carrying surplus energy from other parts of the EU, rather than any generated in Holland.

It is only Germany that has decided to continue to use coal as a major electricity source and that is mainly because they need an active energy source as they shut down all their nuclear reactors. Even with this focus coal only made up 37% of their production capacity, with renewables managing 33%.
