Bisnis, JAKARTA — Without careful planning, energy transition policies that prioritize the use of renewable energy may pose a risk to the coal industry. Governments need to be cautious in managing the energy transition process, particularly in phasing out coal, to prevent serious impacts on the economy and energy supply.

Research indicates that the global coal industry is likely to lose nearly 1 million jobs by 2050. Hundreds of mines employing a significant workforce are estimated to close in the coming decades as they reach the end of their operational lifespans.

As countries shift from coal to cleaner, low-carbon energy sources, most coal mines that are likely to be closed have no plans in place for managing the transition to a post-coal economy to extend the lifespan of these coal mines.

This warning comes from the US-based think tank Global Energy Monitor (GEM). Dorothy Mei, project manager of the GEM's Global Coal Mine Tracker, says that governments need to create plans to ensure that workers do not suffer due to the energy transition.
