List of largest power stations in the world

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Three Gorges, currently the largest hydroelectric power station, and the largest power producing body ever built, at 22,500 MW.

This article lists the largest power stations in the world, the ten overall and the five of each type, in terms of current installed electrical capacity. Non-renewable power stations are those that run on coal, fuel oils, nuclear, natural gas, oil shale and peat, while renewable power stations run on fuel sources such as biomass, geothermal heat, hydro, solar energy, solar heat, tides, waves and the wind. Only the most significant fuel source are listed for power stations that run on multiple sources.

At present, the largest power generating facility ever built is the Three Gorges Dam in China. The facility generates power by utilizing 32 Francis turbines each of a capacity of 700 MW and two 50 MW turbines,[1] totalling the installed capacity to 22,500 MW, more than twice the installed capacity of the largest nuclear power station, the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa at 8,212 MW. As of 2012 no power station comparable to Three Gorges is under construction, as the largest under construction power stations are hydroelectric Xiluodu Dam (13,860 MW),[2] Baihetan Dam (13,050 MW)[3] and Belo Monte Dam (11,000 MW).[4]

Although currently only a proposal, the Grand Inga Dam in Congo would surpass all existing power stations, including the Three Gorges Dam, if construction commences as planned. The design targets to top 39,000 MW in installed capacity, nearly twice that of the Three Gorges.[5][6][7] Another proposal, Penzhin Tidal Power Plant, presumes an installed capacity up to 87,100 MW.
