END OF THE LINE: COAL IN AUSTRALIA

24.07.18 By and

AUSTRALIA’S COAL POWER STATIONS are not fit for a 21st century power system with almost 100 breakdowns at fossil fuel power stations in the seven-month period to the end of June 2018, according to a new Climate Council report ‘End of the Line: Coal in Australia’.

Climate Councillor and energy sector veteran with more than 40 years experience, Professor Andrew Stock said, “by 2030, 55% of coal power stations in Australia will be over 40 years old. These ageing coal stations are  increasingly unreliable and expensive to operate, risking blackouts and higher consumer power costs.”
