The China Overseas Finance Inventory (COFI) is a comprehensive database covering Chinese equity and debt investments in the power-generation sector across 87 Belt and Road Initiative countries. It consolidates nine different source databases to include the transaction details of 655 investments in 575 power plants. The database is a collaboration between the Boston University Global Development Policy Center, the Inter-American Dialogue, the China-Africa Research Initiative at Johns Hopkins University and World Resources Institute.

Key data points for financial transactions in COFI include the financial instrument (equity or debt), investor name, amount and financial close year. Key technical characteristics tracked for projects in COFI include name, installed capacity, commissioning year, country and primary fuel type.

The database is available for download through Open Data Portal.
