Worldwide, an increasing number of countries, utilities and financial institutions are
putting coal in the rear-view mirror. They are driven by climate action, the demand for
cleaner air and the poor economics of coal. While the health impacts of air pollution
and the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from coal are far higher than any other power
source, there are readily available, abundant, cost-effective alternatives to coal-fired
generation. This makes coal-fired electricity both uniquely harmful and unnecessary.
The phase-out of coal is also happening in the context of countries committing to a netzero
economy by 2050, which would require a net-zero electricity grid by 2035 in
developed countries.
