Please join Jeffries and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Brad Handler, Payne Institute Sustainable Finance Lab Program Manager, presenting a virtual seminar titled The Financial Mechanisms Around Coal Retirement on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 from 9:00am – 10:00am (MT).
Coal fired power plants (CFPPs) are the single largest source of global greenhouse gas emissions comprising ~20% of the world’s total. The decarbonization imperative has motivated various initiatives anchored by financial mechanisms to accelerate the retirement of existing CFPPs, ranging from single plant solutions to country-wide energy transformation. Join us on Tuesday, November 8th at 11AM ET, for a discussion with Brad Handler, Researcher and Program Lead for the Sustainable Finance Lab at the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines, to discuss some of these initiatives, including analysis underway at the Payne Institute, and the associated capital requirements with conversion to renewable energy.
• Landscape of financial mechanisms to accelerate the retirement of existing CFPPs
• Payne Institute analysis
• Associated capital requirements with conversion to renewable energy
• Where does this all go next?
