UK Alliance set to Stop Coal Generation

The UK has committed to ending the use of unabated coal power before 2025.

The global Powering Past Coal Alliance has been launched which sees the UK join forces with 25 other countries and states including Canada, France, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium.

The alliance pledges to plan targets relating to phasing down the use of unabated coal power generation and a removal of funding for coal power in their country or in support of another.

Some notable absentees from the alliance include the USA, China, Russia and Germany, some of the largest coal users in the world who refused to sign up to the deal.

The alliance plans to work together with governments and businesses to encourage the use of renewable energy and offer assistance in the removal of coal power generation.

Claire Perry MP, UK Climate Change Minister stated: “Reducing global coal consumption should be a vital and urgent priority for all countries and states.”

“Unabated coal is the dirtiest, most polluting way of generating electricity.”

“The Powering Past Coal Alliance will signal to the world that the time of coal has passed.”

“The UK is committed to completely phasing out unabated coal-fired power generation no later than 2025 and we hope to inspire others to follow suit.”
