Clean power can catalyze dramatic reductions in global carbon dioxide emissions and yield significant additional benefits, such as healthier living conditions, increased energy security, and greater economic competitiveness. The ClimateWorks Power program targets key areas that, together, can accelerate the transformation of the global power sector.
The Clean Energy, Clean Air initiative supports efforts to rapidly transform the power sector away from coal power toward clean energy in over 10 countries across Asia, Europe, and Oceania. The benefits of expanding clean energy go far beyond reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change. The burning of coal and other fossil fuels emit air pollutants that can create severe and long-lasting health impacts. By working to keep those pollutants out of our air, we can all breathe cleaner air, protect public health, provide reliable and abundant clean energy, and slow climate change.
The world knows how to get more renewable energy on the electricity grid and transform the power sector, but in too many countries, this know-how isn’t being applied fast enough. The Clean Power Hub aims to provide cutting-edge, tailored resources and services to power sector practitioners and influencers so they can support the changes necessary to achieve a low-carbon power sector.
