Japan is moving ahead with plans for 47 new coal-fired power plants, Clean Technica reported. Meanwhile, countries in the rest of the G7 are working to curb their coal use.
As quoted in the publication:
A new report published earlier this month by climate diplomacy and energy policy analysts E3G includes its latest G7 coal scorecard, which shows clearly just how contrary to its fellow members of the G7 Japan is placed.
Though the scorecard does not read well for most members of the G7, there is good news in parts — with an additional 4 GW of proposed new coal plants scrapped across the G7, leaving Japan as the only member country actively seeking to build new coal capacity.
