Global Energy Monitor

The Global Gas Plant Tracker (GGPT) is a worldwide dataset of gas-fired power plants. It includes units with capacities of 50 megawatts (MW) or more (20 MW or more in the European Union and the United Kingdom). The GGPT catalogues every operating or under construction gas-fired generating unit, every new unit proposed since 2020, and every unit retired or mothballed since 2020. Units often consist of a boiler and gas or steam turbines, and several units may make up one gas-fired power station. Various types of gas-fired plants and technologies are tracked in the dataset, including combined heat and power plants, combined cycle plants, captive plants, integrated solar combined cycle plants, integrated gasification combined cycle plants, and others. The map and underlying data is updated bi-annually, in January and July. Each plant included in the tracker is linked to a wiki page on GEM.wiki, which provides additional details.
