Decision makers across the economy need access to comprehensive, accurate,
and relevant data to make informed energy decisions.
Power Watch is working to meet that need by creating the world’s most comprehensive, open source database of the global power sector.
Mapping of power plant location, plus analytical tools for emissions accounting, water use, and other climate impacts will be layered on top of the database to help users make more informed energy related decisions.
This type is critically important to navigating the interplay between achieving climate, energy, and development targets at the global level, as well as making local energy investment decisions. The tools and underlying data can support companies, government officials, utilities, data analysts, and citizens, among others.
