Coal Phase-Out

Alberta

In 2011, six coal-fired power plants in Alberta emitted 17% of the province’s greenhouse gases and 33% of its sulphur dioxide. CAPE co-led the campaign that resulted in the Alberta government’s commitment to phase-out coal plants by 2030. This action is expected to prevent 600 premature deaths and 500 hospital admissions or emergency room visits between 2014 and 2035, with health benefits valued at $3 billion.
