Diverging coal phase-out strategies and their implications for EU Climate & Energy policies



Hanna Brauers, Master students at Technische Universität Berlin and Research assistant at German Institute for Economic Research


Hanna will present the current state of her master thesis about the coal phase-out (or expansion) strategies of three  representative EU states, namely the United Kingdom, Germany and  Poland. To maintain the chance of limiting global warming to 1.5°C and to fulfil the EU's greenhouse gas reduction commitments, all countries will have to phase-out electricity generation from coal as soon as possible. Nevertheless, coal strategies diverge from phase-out to expansion, creating another divide between Eastern and Western European countries.  The aim of the thesis is to analyse reasons for the disparate developments and to derive policy recommendations on how  an EU-wide coal phase-out can be furthered.
