Power construction projects dashboard

The existence and development of adequate power infrastructure is essential to deliver affordable and reliable energy to the businesses and consumers.

Power Technology’s power construction projects dashboard provides analysis and insights into global power construction investments, the power construction project pipeline by value and volume, and the construction momentum index for power sector projects.

In partnership with

GlobalData's Construction Intelligence Center is the complete source of project, market, company and theme intelligence for the global construction sector.

Power construction project pipeline volume by country

Power Technology evaluates the world’s major power construction projects in various stages by volume and location to provide insights into the power sector activity.

A total of 169 power construction projects were started in 2020, while seven projects were completed.

The US was home to the highest number of power projects whose construction was commenced in 2020 with 32 projects, followed by China with 26 and Saudi Arabia with 13 projects.

Power construction project pipeline value by country

Power Technology presents an analysis of the value of power construction projects in pipeline across the world, based on GlobalData’s most comprehensive Construction Projects database.

Power construction projects with a combined value of $86.68bn were started in 2020, while projects worth $1.48bn combined were completed.

Egypt started power construction projects worth $30.44bn, followed by China with projects worth $23.41bn and the US with $9.43bn.

Global power construction projects momentum index

The momentum index is based on scoring the latest developments on projects from +5 to -5 based on the degree to which a development is positive, such as construction commencing or a contract awarded, or negative, such as delays or cancellations. The overall momentum score is the average score for the month, weighted by the project values.

Using GlobalData’s comprehensive and continuously updated database of power construction projects, Power Technology calculates the project momentum index to understand the monthly and trend scores of projects.

Monthly score is the average event score for all projects updated in a month, while trend score is the three-month moving average of the monthly score.

Top 100 global power and energy infrastructure projects

Power Technology lists the world’s biggest power and energy infrastructure projects by value, using GlobalData’s research.

East Anglia Offshore Wind Farm Development, UK, Hinkley Point C Nuclear Power Station, UK, and El Dabaa Nuclear Power, Egypt topped the list of the world’s 100 biggest power and energy infrastructure projects by value as of November 2021.

The top five projects together accounted for a combined value of $149.9bn.
