“Coal is the single-largest source of global carbon emissions, and this year’s historically high level of coal power generation is a worrying sign of how far off track the world is in its efforts to put emissions into decline towards net zero,” IEA executive director Fatih Birol (pic) said.

NEW YORK: The world likely will generate more electricity from the dirtiest source this year than ever before, indicating just how far the energy transition still needs to run in the fight against climate change.

Coal-fuelled generation is set to jump 9% from last year, according to an International Energy Agency (IEA) report released yesterday.

That U-turn from the declines of the previous two years threatens the world’s trajectory to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, the organisation said.

The United States and European Union had the biggest increases in coal use at about 20% each, followed by India at 12% and China – the world’s largest consumer – at 9%, the IEA estimated.

The comeback is being driven by economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, which is outpacing the ability of low-carbon energy sources to maintain supply.

Record natural gas prices have increased reliance on other sources, including coal, and amplified calls for faster investments in renewables.

Power prices in Europe have more than tripled in the past six months, and it’s become more profitable to burn coal than gas. Still, utilities have struggled to get their hands on it even as China and the US boost production.

Carbon-dioxide emissions from coal in 2024 are now predicted to be at least three billion tonnes higher than in a scenario reaching net-zero by 2050, the report said.

The IEA expects peak coal to occur next year at 8.11 billion tonnes, with the biggest production increases coming from China, Russia and Pakistan.

The Paris-based IEA said in May that development of new oil, gas and coal sources must stop this year if the world is to meet emissions targets in line with the Paris Agreement.

Climate campaigners were dismayed in November when a key aspiration of the United Nations’ COP26 climate summit in Scotland was watered down to produce a pledge to “phase down” – rather than “phase out” – coal use.
