Despite the global boom in renewable energy, many new coal-fired power plants are planned or under construction, particularly in fast-growing Asia. Curtailing the expansion of these plants and redirecting the flows of overseas public finance to renewables instead is a vital part of efforts to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
WWF’s REpowering Asia initiative focuses on driving systemic change in public overseas finance for the power sector in the major 'supply' countries of China and South Korea and reducing demand for new coal by accelerating the transition to renewable energy in the 'demand' countries of Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Myanmar.
WWF is uniquely positioned to take on this dual-pronged strategy to address new coal and drive the shift towards renewables given its convening power in the region; its access to public sector decision makers; and its foothold in the most significant new coal countries.
