China to stop building new coal power projects overseas!coal power|low-carbon|Energy|Paris Agreement [Video]

#ChineseNews #Energy #ChinaFocus “China Focus” is a YouTube channel created to provide current events and pop culture headlines from China.Here you can get to know a more real China through my video. |Today, let’s focus on the issue of “China to stop building new coal power projects overseas!”.The mounting calls for China to stop supporting coal power projects overseas have received an answer. Chinese President Xi Jinping announced through a pre-recorded video address to the United Nations General Assembly on 21 September that China “will not build new coal-fired power plants abroad” while at the same time increasing its support for developing countries to pursue green and low-carbon development.Chinese-supported development of coal-fired power overseas has already slowed down in the past five years, thanks to the decreasing competitiveness of coal power compared to renewables and declining appetite from host countries. A report by the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA) shows that close to half of planned and permitted coal power projects with Chinese involvement have been either cancelled or suspended. In 2021 so far, China has not made any new coal investment overseas, except for three supply and engineering contracts that may or may not materialise.Both Japan and South Korea have announced policies for ending public financing support for coal power projects abroad in recent months. With President Xi’s announcement, all major public financiers of the industry have indicated their intention to exit the overseas market in one way or another.Kevin Gallagher, director of the Center for Global Development Policy at Boston University, says China is the first developing country to take such a stance. He is now urging the private sector to follow suit.Thanks for your watching and subscribing.
