We take a look at ENGIE’s global coal phase-out, identifying fossil gas conversion risks and a lack of Paris Agreement alignment.
UK wind power and low demand pushed fossil gas to a 5-year low, as UK reaches a major green power milestone.
Ember's latest report showed that renewables overtook fossil fuels to become the EU’s main source of electricity in 2020.
The UK government can offer businesses more certainty by increasing the UK ETS carbon price floor - ahead of alignment with net zero.
Latest UK power sector data shows that the UK grid is accelerating towards a 2035 gas phase-out, with wind power replacing fossil gas.

2020 looks set to be a year of two halves, with unprecedented declines in coal power followed by a big bounce back. We project coal generation to fall by 5% in 2020 - the largest decline ever seen, but still not enough for a 1.5 degree world.
China’s growing appetite for coal-intensive steel, aluminium, cement and electricity puts it out of sync with falling global coal use.
Strong performance in zero carbon electricity in Europe during October has forced down fossil fuel generation, with renewables once again overtaking fossil fuels as the main power source for Europe.
In the next decade renewables are set to double and coal power to halve - but seven countries will cause the EU to miss its emissions targets.
