Report: New Dutch government to shutter all coal-fired plants by 2030

The incoming Dutch government plans to shut down all coal-fired power plants by 2030 in a bid to cut greenhouse gas emissions to 49% below 1990 levels.

Of the five coal-fired plants in the country, three were just recently completed, Reuters reported Oct. 11.

Among the other measures the Rutte III cabinet has in its climate policy taxing flight tickets and freight traffic, putting a minimum price on carbon dioxide, and moving to stop the use of natural gas, the NLTimes reported Oct. 11. The new administration is also planning to advocate for a 55% cut in emissions in Europe.
