Description

Description The members of the Powering Past Coal Alliance work together to share real-world examples and best practices to support the phase-out of unabated coal, including through climate finance, and to adopt practical initiatives to support this transition, including through developing clean energy plans and targets.
Objectives The commitment is to working together is informed by science-based benchmarks that show that EU and OECD countries must phase out unabated coal-fired electricity generation no later than 2030, with the rest of the world no later than 2050 to limit global warming and the impacts of climate change.
Activities Private sector partners are expected to make a specific commitment by joining the alliance that would contribute to the phase out of unabated coal from the power sector within a timeframe compatible with the Powering Past Coal declaration. The commitment depends on the nature of their business. (Unabated coal power generation refers to the use of coal without any technologies to substantially reduce its CO2 emissions, such as carbon capture and storage).

Large consumers of electricity commit to: Powering their operations without unabated coal-fired electricity. Recognizing that businesses must often connect to the grid in countries that still use coal, fulfilling this commitment can take the form of clean electricity contracts with utilities, Power Purchase Agreements that exclude coal, or the purchase of clean electricity certificates for a company’s operations. For example, commitments such as those made under the RE100 would enable a company to be a partner in the Alliance.

Electricity suppliers or generators commit to: Phasing out unabated coal-fired power stations from their asset base within a timeframe compatible with the Paris Agreement, and not building new unabated coal-fired power stations without operational carbon capture and storage.

Investors commit to: Restricting financing to existing unabated coal fired power stations to promote their phase-out within a timeframe compatible with the Paris Agreement, and restricting finance to new unabated coal fired power stations without operational carbon capture and storage.
