Why join the Powering Past Coal Alliance?

The Powering Past Coal Alliance exists to support the transition away from unabated coal power generation and accelerate clean growth. By bringing together a wide range of members from national, regional and city level, Alliance members can provide mutual support by sharing best practice and experience in their transition from coal. Taken together, actions by members within the Alliance can provide a stronger sense of collective action which can accelerate the wider transition from coal to clean.

Note: In September 2019, the PPCA responded to the growing demand for support on the transition from coal to clean energy by enabling membership for national governments that are in the process of developing and implementing ambitious actions on coal phase-out. Further information about membership criteria and the formation of a Declaration Group is provided in this PPCA news article.

Private sector members agree to help phase out unabated coal from the power sector

  • Large consumers of electricity commit to powering their operations without unabated coal-fired electricity.
  • Electricity suppliers or generators commit to stop building new unabated coal-fired power plants and to phase out those that exist.
  • Financial sector actors commit to restrict finance and financial services to new and existing unabated coal fired power generation, in line with the PPCA's Finance Principles, launched in July 2019.

Prospective members are asked to:

  1. Send a letter or email to confirm your commitment to the Alliance goals.
  2. Identify a contact person that the Secretariat can share news and information about meetings, events, announcements, etc with. We would like to keep our members informed and engaged as the Alliance grows.
  3. Provide a few short points to highlight what your government or business is doing to support coal phase-out.
