EDP is one of 44 companies that make part of the global alliance created from Canada and the United Kingdom to accelerate the end of coal production. Membership was announced last week, along with six new members, during the UN Energy Transition Coalition webinar. EDP is one of the new members of the Powering Past Coal Alliance, the world’s first and only coalition of national and sub-national governments and private sector organizations working to advance the transition away from unabated coal power generation.

Since the beginning of September, and besides EDP, six more members have joined this global effort to decarbonization:Peru, the first PPCA member in South America; Seoul, the capital of South Korea; Gyeonggi, the most populous province in South Korea; Baden-Württemberg, a state in southwest Germany; and Kaohsiung and Taichung cities. These new numbers were announced on 17th September by PPCA at the UN Energy Transition Coalition high-level event. With coal assets in Portugal, Spain and Brazil, which are scheduled to close by 2030, EDP, which is already a global leader in renewable energy, is now the only portuguese company present in this rank.

With these additional members, the alliance now has 111 members, including 34 national governments, 33 subnational governments and 44 businesses. The announcement was made at a high-level ministerial event, as part of a series of UN Energy Transition Coalition events hosted by the Denmark and Ethiopia missions to the UN at the one-year mark since the UN Climate Action Summit.
