TODAY IN ENERGY: More U.S. coal-fired power plants are decommissioning as retirements continue


  • Plant owners intend to retire another 17 GW of coal-fired capacity by 2025, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration's (EIA) Preliminary Monthly Electric Generator Inventory.
  • After a coal unit retires, the power plant site goes through a complex, multi-year process that includes decommissioning, remediation, and redevelopment.
  • In 2018, plant owners retired more than 13 GW of coal-fired generation capacity, which is the second-highest annual total for U.S. coal retirements in EIA's dataset; the highest total for coal retirements, at 15 GW, occurred in 2015.
