In Brief An international partnership has been formed to accelerate the process of ending our reliance on coal power. The Powering Past Coal Alliance already consists of 20 countries, with hopes to expand to 50 members over the next year. The UK and Canada have come together to launch an international partnership, in the hopes of advancing efforts to transition away from using coal as an energy source. The Powering Past Coal Alliance was announced at the COP23 climate talks hosted by the United Nations.

“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-fire power generation no later than 2025 and we hope to inspire others to follow suit.”

Following the UK and Canada’s lead, more than twenty partners have already signed up to be a part of the Powering Past Coal Alliance.

The Powering Past Coal Alliance acknowledges that it’s not possible for every nation to work at the same pace.
