Record drop in U.S. coal-fire capacity likely in 2018

This year will most likely see a record set for coal-fired power capacity retirements in the U.S. IEEFA expects a total of 15.4 gigawatts (GW) of capacity to close in 2018 through the retirement of 44 units at 22 plants in more than a dozen states. At least 11GW have already been closed this year, and the retirement trend is on pace to easily exceed the record 14.7GW of coal-fired generation capacity closed in 2015.
