Closing Coal in China: International Experiences to Inform Power Sector Reform
This report addresses two issues related to coal-fired generation: how selected countries in the European Union and North America are making the transition away from unabated coal-fired power, and what reforms could ease a similar transition in China. It concentrates on coal-fired generation, not on the mining of coal, its industrial use, or the political economy frictions related to closure of facilities that use coal.
