Canada and UK join to phase out coal electricity

485 coal

Canada and the UK will lead a coalition of 20 countries planning to phase out the use of coal-fired power by 2030. Partners in the Powering Past Coal Alliance are working together to accelerate clean growth and climate protection through the rapid phase-out of traditional coal power.  The Alliance is committed to supporting clean power through their policies and investments and to restricting financing for traditional coal power without carbon capture and storage. The partners commit to making this transition in an economically inclusive way, with a just transition for workers and communities. The Powering Past Coal Alliance includes the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, the State of Washington and the City of Vancouver.  Canada is expected to move ahead with regulations that would force provinces to move away from coal-fired power.
