Global Coal Public Finance Tracker

The Global Coal Public Finance Tracker tracks foreign government support for coal plant projects globally. The tracker includes foreign flows of financing for coal that come from public finance institutions such as export credit agencies, government-backed insurers, and development banks. It also includes tracking of state-owned enterprises involved in coal power plants through equity investments or engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts. The data covers all projects since 2013, including currently proposed projects, which have received or are likely to receive public support. The tracker shows the major governments financing, insuring or involved in overseas coal projects, and where they are building the projects. For the financing countries, data includes the names of government-affiliated financial institutions or state-owned enterprises involved in projects, the list of individual projects abroad, and the amount of capacity (megawatts) being supported. For the recipient countries, data includes the list of foreign government-owned institutions conducting coal projects within their jurisdiction, a list of the projects, and the amount of capacity being supported.
