End of coal deserves applause, but also fears. Minister says he will “tranquilize” workers

The end of energy production from coal in Portugal is cheered by non-governmental organizations such as Zero and Climáximo. The Pego thermoelectric plant was the last to use this fossil fuel nationally, being responsible for 4% of annual national greenhouse gas emissions between 2008 and 2019. However, environmentalists warn of “the mirage” that is still the coveted socially just energy transition, since workers at the Pego plant, whose contract expires on November 30, know nothing about its future.
