This research is potentially worth millions of dollars to investors. The depth of analysis conducted by Heffa Schuecking and her team is superb.

Tom Sanzillo Director of Finance, IEEFA institute

Building these coal plants would lead to a failure to reach the Paris climate goals and put us on a fast-track towards a 4°C temperature rise.

Bill Hare CEO of Climate Analytics and lead author of the 4Th IPCC Assessment Report

Coal is the climate killer number one among fossil fuels. We therefore need to phase out coal-fired power generation as quickly as possible.

Prof. Mojib Latif Climate Scientist, Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (GEOMAR)

Database: Companies on Coal Expansion Course

Investments in new coal power capacity are incompatible with the Paris climate goals as each new coal plant locks-in high CO2 emissions for decades to come. This database identifies the world’s top 120 coal plant developers. The divestment of these companies is crucial if we want to limit global warming to 1.5°C.  

Our Sources: The main source for this data was CoalSwarm’s "Global Coal Plant Tracker", which we complemented with company-related research.  

Using the Database: You can customize this database by applying filters, changing the order of the list or searching for specific company names. For the full Coal Plant Developers list, including further information on subsidiaries, please visit the download section.

Downloading Data: You can only download our data as a registered user. Once you have logged in, you will see a download button below the database. By clicking on it, you can download your individual company selection as shown on the site. For downloading our complete list containing additional information, please visit the download section.
