This policy brief series explores near-term coal retirement potentials and develops plant-by-plant retirement pathways to achieve 1.5°C-compatible phaseouts for individual countries. To balance broader national development goals, we apply a five-dimensional framework that integrates technical, economic, environmental, security, and social criteria. This approach allows us to explore the shared and different opportunities and challenges of a rapid coal phase-out across countries.
