New Brunswick announces plan to phase out coal generation
Canada’s maritime province of New Brunswick is following in the footsteps of the federal government and other provinces such as Alberta and Ontario to phase out or announce plans to completely phase out coal-fired electricity generation by 2030. In its new action plan ‘Transitioning to a Low-carbon Economy’, New Brunswick has committed to work with the federal government, neighbouring provinces, local stakeholders and the electric utility toward eliminating coal-fuelled electricity generation as quickly as possible.
