Even without considering the serious impact of coal on health, climate, and the environment, a simple analysis of power generation prices alone shows that new renewable energy power generation is cheaper than new coal-fired power plants everywhere. If the battery energy storage factor is taken into account, the new renewable energy power generation is already cheaper than 39% of the coal-fired power plants currently in operation. More and more coal-fired power plants around the world will lose price competitiveness. By 2022, 60% of coal-fired power plants will lack a competitive advantage over renewable energy, and this number will soar to 73% by 2025. Not to mention, renewable energy also has the social and environmental benefits of reducing pollutant emissions.

The data shows that by the end of 2020, replacing uncompetitive coal with clean energy can save global power customers $39 billion; by 2022, it can save $86 billion, bringing net cost savings to customers. By 2025, the cost savings have risen further to $141 billion.
