please explain this statement: among the commercial sources of energy  the % of direct final consumption of  coal has reduced irrespective of the increase in total consumption

Coal can be used directly as a source of energy for producing electricity, running trains etc. This statement states that the use of coal for its direct final consumption to produce energy has declined. But, at the same time the total consumption of coal has increased because coal can also be used for manufacturing cement, steel etc.
