CarbonBrief - Mapped: when should EU coal plants close?
EU countries should close all of their coal plants by around 2030 if they want to stick to the Paris Agreement on climate change – this is the conclusion of a new report by research non-profit Climate Analytics. The cheapest way to meet Paris targets is to replace EU coal power with renewables and energy efficiency, it says.
Carbon Brief has mapped the year when each individual coal plant across the EU should close, in order to stick within this overall, Paris-compliant 2030 timeline, according to the new analysis.
