Global Power Systems

Dr. Paul Deane, of MaREI writes:

The distribution and primary fuel of the world’s power stations indicate how uneven electricity access is, and how far some countries must go to decarbonize. Computer simulations of future power systems can’t predict the future but can help us understand and prepare for it. If you are interested in this research area check out the Raw data from this visualization from WRI (Global Power Plant Database – Datasets – Data | World Resources Institute. If you want to simulate the operation of these power stations check out our PLEXOS World Global power system model which is openly available here
