SURVEY DETAILS

TARGET POPULATION

The GLG Surveys team interviewed 70 senior executives working at power plants and utility companies in Europe and North America.

What will you learn from this survey?  

  • These respondents provided their views on the organisational, investment and market implications of coal phase-out.
  • The survey also gathered insights into alternative fuel organisations are planning to use in the future and missing prerequisites required for the market to become ready for the phase-out of coal.
  • Lastly, experts commented on how the power price volatility will be impacted as a direct result of coal phase-out.

Examples of findings: 

  • In Europe, 64% of experts stated the market is ready for the phase-out of coal, compared to 35% in the US.
  • Also in the US, the majority of respondents (95%) are expecting most companies to switch to natural gas as an alternative fuel, compared to 53% in Europe.
  • Overall, 73% of experts mentioned they expect the power price volatility to increase as a direct impact of coal phase-out.
