University College London (UCL) for INNOPATHS

Carbon Tracker Initiative (CTI) will present a new report on global coal economics that will demonstrate the economic unviability of coal, providing a key argument to policymakers and investors willing to align with the Paris Agreement climate targets and supporting the phase-out of coal.
An interactive portal will also show the cost and profitability of global coal-fired capacity and compare it against renewables.
University College London (UCL) will present insights from ‘INNOPATHS’ (Innovation pathways, strategies and policies for the Low-Carbon Transition in Europe): how to design robust decarbonisation policies; policy portfolios in different country contexts; a policy evaluation tool; the phase-out of coal in European countries; trends in EU climate finance.
The German Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) will showcase how dialogue and exchange with European partners has helped climate pioneers to overcome challenges in their local context. The specific thematic focus will derive from projects in the Katowice region.
