G7 Energy Ministers Agree To Close Coal-Fired Generating Stations By 2035

Energy ministers from the G7 countries agreed at a meeting in Turin, Italy, to close all coal-fired generating stations in their countries by 2035 if not sooner. There is one caveat, however. Germany has already said it will shutter its coal plants by 2038 and the agreement allows it to continue with that plan. Japan has no such timeline in place and may be given additional latitude with regard to its fleet of coal-fired generating stations.
