Coal Fired Power Plants Under Construction

In January 2023 there were 6,565 coal-fired power plants operating around the world.

Incredibly, there are also further 374 coal power stations currently under construction, 8 years after the 2015 UN Paris Climate Agreement! Many of these are in the developing countries of the Asia Pacific Region (as shown below.)

Take Action Now

There has never been a more important time to support the transition from fossil fuels to renewables. High-integrity carbon credits are one mechanism to facilitate much‑needed finance, helping decarbonise developing countries and ending the construction of coal fired power plants.
