Global Coal Plant Tracker

The Global Coal Plant Tracker provides information on all existing coal plants of 30 MW or larger, as well as every plant proposed since January 1, 2010. The tracker uses a two-level system for organizing information. Summary information including location, status, sponsor, size, and carbon dioxide emissions is found on the maps and table. For further detail, each unit shown on a map or in a table is linked to a wiki page on SourceWatch..



Similar to the “Scramble for Africa” the push for the development of coal and fossil fuels in Africa is a new wave of corporate colonisation that profits corporations and the wealthy elite. Any new coal power plant will come at great cost: local environmental destruction, impact on the health of local peoples, and an intensification of the pace and impacts of climate change.

It’s time to come together and #deCOALonise Africa!
