RWE has announced that the preparedness phase for its last two hard-coal-fired power stations in Germany has come to an end.
AES Corporation has signed an agreement with the Government of Chile to allow for the closure of 1,097MW of coal generation as soon as 2025.
Bangladesh has announced the cancellation of 10 coal-fired power plants in favour of imported hydropower and LNG.
UK Energy and Climate Change Minister Anne-Marie Trevelyan has announced that from 1 October 2024 Great Britain will no longer use coal to generate electricity.
The benefits would include Germany avoiding fuel & carbon costs and as well as taking advantage of and enjoying new clean power export opportunities.
The coal-fired plant will not close within two years, but could operate for several years waiting for its new owners to raise funds for a carbon-capture facility.
