Webinar: How to lose the coal as a fuel for electricity generation without losing all the jobs

Coal is increasingly becoming financially risky and environmentally problematic. However, the social repercussions of phasing out this long-entrenched industry can be severe. In this webinar we analyze how policymakers, financial institutions and private companies can phase out coal but save some of the jobs:

  • We will discuss how renewable energy can be used in coal-fired plants instead of coal.
  • How renewable energy generation can use the same transmission assets as the coal-fired plants.
  • Which combinations of renewable energy technologies can replicate the role of coal-fired power plants in the power system.
