    Adam Morton 11 March 2020 (UK Guardian)

    Building new wind and solar plants will soon be cheaper in every major market across the globe than running existing coal-fired power stations…[While some countries are moving faster than others, the analysis by the Carbon Tracker Initiative] found renewable power was a cheaper option than building new coal plants in all large markets…and was expected to cost less than electricity from existing coal plants by 2030 at the latest…Solar photovoltaics and wind energy were already cheaper than electricity from about 60% of coal stations, including about 70% of China’s coal fleet and half of Australia’s plants…[In Japan], wind power was found to cost less than new coal plants and was expected to be cheaper than existing coal by 2028.
