pdf

The impacts of climate change have been felt by human society. Global temperature has risen 1°C for the past 100 years, and 2017 was the hottest year on record. Impacts from climate change vary by region, East Asia is no exception. In this report, members of the East Asia Climate Forum from China, Japan and South Korea introduce current status of coal‐fired power plants (CFPPs) and their prospects, hoping to provide a different angle from civil society for a better understanding the issues and general trend of the coal power sector in East Asia, and to  contribute to the discussion on a quicker transition to a cleaner energy system.
