/ In this special issue of Future Power Technology, we focus on new power projects in the planning and construction stages around the world.

According to Timetric data, the global power generation projects pipeline is worth $4.78tn, with Asia Pacific leading the way with projects valuing more than $2tn. We offer an overview of the developments adding an estimated 2,944GW of capacity to the world’s power grid.

We also round up the top 20 projects by capacity under construction around the world, including the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm proposed by DONG Energy, which will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm when complete with 1.2GW capacity. In Dubai, we check in on the 5,000MW Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, which will help to meet growing power requirements in the United Arab Emirates.

Finally, we take a closer look at the state of the world’s coal, gas and nuclear plants, profile the most expensive nuclear projects currently under construction, and round up the top 10 largest transmission lines being built to deliver electricity across the Americas, Europe and Africa. /
