This paper discusses methods to estimate annual power-plant generation for wind, solar, hydro and natural gas plants globally, based on national averages. Generation information is necessary to estimate benefits and costs of power plants.
This paper provides quantitative evidence to help investors better understand and measure the financial impacts from water shortages in the thermal power sector, drawing on data and analysis of Indian companies. It introduces a new methodology to estimate the water shortage-induced impacts to earnings on five Indian thermal power companies from FY 2014-2017. It also uses outputs from climate models to analyze potential future changes to water availability in India, which could increase the risk of water shortages.
The Global Power Plant Database is a comprehensive, open source database of power plants around the world. It centralizes power plant data to make it easier to navigate, compare and draw insights for one’s own analysis.
This paper aims to uncover water risks to India’s thermal power sector.
