Power Watch is a partnership to fill the need for better power sector data
Today's lack of transparent, accessible and centralized power sector data seriously inhibits the ability to conduct reliable research and solve problems in the global power sector. Consequently, information gaps for citizens, analysts, and decision-makers worldwide create barriers to sustainable power sector development efforts.
Power Watch, to be launched in 2018, will meet that need by bringing together extensive data sets and visualizations that enable you to explore the current state of the power sector at global, national, and individual power plant level. The platform will contain information on all types of power generation, regardless of fuel type, from large-scale traditional power plants to distributed renewables to energy storage. By tracking all forms of power generation and providing centralized data and visualizations, Power Watch will show structural shifts to clean energy in the power sector over time, identifying patterns and pathways toward a more sustainable and energy-secure future.
