Power construction projects

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 provides insight into the number of new power projects in the world by country and stage of development.

As at the start of 2022, Power Technology had identified 11,043 power projects over $25m at various stages of development, including 2,871 in execution.

By country, the US was home to the highest number of power projects with 1,437 projects, followed by India and China with 1,233 and 531 projects, respectively.

Power construction project pipeline value by country

Power Technology provides an analysis of the total investment value of power projects by country and stage of development, based on GlobalData’s construction projects database.

The total pipeline of new power construction projects over $25m had a combined value of $10.53tn at the start of 2022.

By country, India had the largest pipeline of over $25m new power projects, worth a total of $1.85tn, followed by the US and China with $882.1bn and $716.46bn, respectively.

India had power construction projects in the execution phase worth $850bn, followed by China with $437bn and the UK with $317.66bn in 2021.

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 of all project developments in each month, weighted by the project values.
The power construction projects momentum index, which is based on GlobalData’s construction projects database, depicts the monthly and trend scores of projects.Monthly score is the average event score for all project developments in each month, while the 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.

Penzhinskaya Bay Tidal Power Plant, Russia, Tibet Yarlung Tsangpo Hydroelectric Power Plant, China, and Jaitapur Nuclear Power Plant 9900 MW, India topped the list of the world’s 100 biggest power and energy infrastructure projects by value as of May 2022.

The top five projects together accounted for a combined value of $443.5bn.
