Lessons from previous ‘coal transitions’. (report)

, kubasto (

The report provides a summary of lessons from six historical case studies of regional coal mining transitions that have occurred or are ongoing in Europe and the United States in recent decades.

These case studies and this report were developed as part of a broader project led by IDDRI (the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations) and Climate Strategies, entitled ‘Coal Transitions: Research and Dialogue on the Future of Coal’. This project seeks to utilise these historical lessons to facilitate the development of feasible coal transition scenarios in large coal producing countries today.
