About this Event

This year, Powering Past Coal Alliance (PPCA) Co-Chairs, the United Kingdom and Canada, and Bloomberg Philanthropies are convening a series of Solutions Dialogues, hosted by PPCA members and partners around the world. These Dialogues will bring together government, business, finance and civil society leaders to raise ambition and accelerate action on the phase-out of unabated coal power.

The series will begin with a High-Level Dialogue at London Climate Action Week on 24th June. Marking the year when the UK closes its last remaining coal power plant, the High-Level Dialogue aims to send a clear message on the need to accelerate coal phase-out globally. In London’s Battersea Power Station, ministers and prominent global figures will showcase the key actions they are taking and define the priority next steps for an effective, just transition. The event will be also live-streamed and recorded for a global audience.

Speakers at the High-Level Dialogue will include:

  • Selwin Hart, Special Adviser to the Secretary-General of the United Nations
  • Fatih Birol, Executive director of the International Energy Agency
  • Catherine Stewart, Canada’s Ambassador for Climate Change
  • Mary L. Shapiro, Vice Chair of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net-Zero

The Powering Past Coal Alliance (PPCA) is a coalition of national and subnational governments, businesses and organisations working to advance the transition from unabated coal power generation to clean energy.
