Australia Beyond Coal is a movement of everyday people -- supported by experts, scientists, businesses and environment organisations -- advocating for the closure of every coal-fired power station in Australia, replacing them with 100% renewable energy by 2030.

United by our commitment to see Australia take meaningful action on climate change, we have come together to build a campaign to transform the Australian energy system over the next decade. We want to see Australia harness the extraordinary economic opportunities of this country’s plentiful renewable energy resources to support thriving communities and forge a bright future powered by clean energy. 

Our mission is to:

  • Empower everyday people with information about the risks of coal-burning power stations to our climate, health and economy 
  • Inspire people to join active campaigns happening right now all over Australia, advocating for a just transition to renewable energy
  • Urge governments and businesses to work with communities on a fast and fair transformation of our energy grid, and
  • Avoid the worst impacts of climate change, while building thriving communities and a prosperous, clean economy for future generations

Australia Beyond Coal was started as an alliance between a group of seven community organisations, who together represent more than one and a half million Australians concerned about the damaging impacts of coal power on our health, communities, and climate. Member organisations are funded by donations from thousands of everyday people around the nation, who want our country to take urgent action on climate change. 

We are inspired by the outstanding work of Beyond Coal campaigns in the US and Europe, bringing together data, research and community-powered campaigns for a clean energy future.
