Beyond Coal

The coal industry has had a tight grip on U.S. energy policy for decades, with devastating consequences for both public health and our environment. Overreliance on fossil energy is also keeping solar and wind out of the market, delaying the transition to a power grid fueled by cleaner energy sources. As part of Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Climate and Clean Energy Program, our partnership with the Sierra Club, which began in 2011, is changing the energy landscape by helping to accelerate the U.S. transition from dirty to clean energy.
