C. Dahl, R. Cui, D. Cui, C. Squire, S. Kennedy (2022). Pathways to achieving a 2030 coal phase-out in the United States. Center for Global Sustainability, 7 pp.
This policy brief from the Center for Global Sustainability offers pathways and policy strategies to phase out coal-fired electricity in the United States by 2030—putting the U.S. on a pathway toward achieving its NDC and 100% clean electricity by 2030. To accelerate the already present coal decline and achieve a complete phase-out by 2030, the analysis demonstrates a concrete and plant-by-plant retirement pathway that would enable the United States to retire roughly ⅔ of plants by 2025 while still maintaining grid stability and achieving other priorities.
