A Dwindling Role for Coal: Union of Concerned Scientists’ Findings in the Southeast

Guest Blog | October 19, 2017 | Webinars

ucs-coal-retirement-webinarJoin SACE and the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) for a webinar on Oct. 24 at 12:3oPM. This webinar will cover USC’s recently released analysis, called A Dwindling Role for Coal: Tracking the Electricity Sector Transition and What It Means for the Nation.

RSVP today!

The report looks at what happened to coal-fired power plants from 2008 to 2016—and it looks forward at what might happen to the coal fleet in the near future. UCS identifies which coal-fired generators are already expected to retire, and which might retire because they are uneconomic compared to cleaner forms of electricity.

The results have strong implications for the Southeast—the vast majority of coal-fired generators turn up as uneconomic compared to existing natural gas, and many are uneconomic compared to wind as well. Join us for a discussion with UCS analysts for details on the results, and for a strategy discussion on how to leverage this work in the Southeast.
