At COP 23 in November last year, the "Powering Past Coal Alliance" was formed initiated by the UK and Canadian Government that have pledged to phase out coal-fired power stations. The formulation of this alliance was based on the scientific research by Climate Analytics, a think tank based in Berlin, which has now carried out an analysis of implications of the Paris Agreement for coal use in Japan.
A symposium to launch the publication of the report “Science based Coal-Phase Out Timeline for Japan” was held in Tokyo on 29 May 2018.
