Listen: Proposed EU ban on coal in power capacity schemes to have little impact in NWE

European Commission proposals for a 550g CO2/kWh emissions limit on power plants in capacity mechanisms would effectively ban coal plants, if approved. But the impact on northwest Europe's largest electricity markets would likely be small, as coal plant capacity there is already in steady decline. Siobhan Hall, Henry Edwardes-Evans and Susanne Ilse discuss how coal plant capacity in northwest Europe is set to fall at least 30% to under 54 GW by 2025, even without further policy measures, and look at who benefits most from capacity mechanisms.
