Just as we expect every last one of the 157 coal plants remaining in Europe will end up with pre-2030 closure dates in the coming years, we also expect that by 2035 our power sector will be based completely on renewable energy instead of fossils. That is what we will campaign for: going Beyond Fossil Fuels.

When we first launched Europe Beyond Coal in 2017, Europe had 328 coal plants and only 3 countries with plans to quit coal. Fast forward to today and coal is in decline. Only 157 coal plants are left without a 2030 closure date and 23 countries are already coal-free or have a plan to quit coal. To solve the cost of living, security and climate crises, we must transform Europe’s power sector so that it is free of fossil fuels and based fully on renewable energy by 2035.
