Ending coal in industrialised and developing countries
Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC) addresses the global coal phase-out in a new, short, overview policy brief. The main measures to help phase out coal are the abolishment of fossil-fuel subsidies, the introduction of sufficiently high international carbon prices, and the reduction of capital costs for renewables, it says.
