Kings of Coal

An interactive website that can help you stop harmful energy projects financed by the European Union.

Kings of Coal is an interactive website whose tagline is "this website can help you stop harmful energy projects" that will make you print your dossier about coal projects financed by the European Union. You can select the banks that are expected to finance the coal project, the companies interested in constructing the project and print your dossier. This website can help you stop harmful energy projects, as companies sometimes cancel projects when they see that they create too many problems. Kings of Coal will show you how to contact the banks and companies behind a project, which policies guide their decisions and how best to influence them.

Kings of Coal is an CEE Bankwatch Network project, whose tagline is a promising statement - "this website can help you stop harmful energy projects." This interactive website guides the user through selecting the banks that are expected to finance the coal project, the companies interested in constructing the project and then prints out this information along with policies that guide their decisions and tips on how best to get in touch with either the bank or the companies and ultimately influence them.
