According to latest Boom and Bust report released by Global Energy Monitor, India has the most number of proposed coal power plants after China. 2021 saw 13% decline in global coal power plants under development.

According to the report, pre-construction coal power capacity between 2015 to 2021 decreased nearly 90% in India. The researchers further found that after rising in 2020 for the first time since 2015, total coal power capacity under development declined 13% last year, from 525 GW to 457 GW.

34 countries have new coal plants under consideration, down from 41 countries in January 2021. China, South Korea, and Japan notably pledged to stop funding new coal plants in other countries, but China continued to lead all countries in domestic development of new coal plants, commissioning more coal capacity than the rest of the world combined, the report added.
