Accelerating the Phaseout of Coal-Fired Power Generation: International Collaboration and Diplomacy
Structural trends in technology and energy markets currently indicate a shift toward the phasing out of coal power generation in the near future, particularly among Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) member states. Similarly, recent reductions in the cost of renewable energy production makes its rapid deployment a viable alternative to coal in emerging economies in South East Asia and other developing regions.
International collaboration can consolidate and accelerate these twin trends, and put the world closer to the goals of the Paris Agreement. The Stanley Center, in collaboration with Wilton Park and association with E3G and the European Climate Foundation, will be hosting an event that will begin a dialogue around creating the conditions for an accelerated but orderly transition from coal in the global economy.
