The utilities would continue constructing coal plants, resulting in a mix of 27 GW of coalfired capacity, 51 GW of combinedcycle plants, 31 GW of PV, and no nuclear plants. For comparison, we also ran the simulations by preventing the utilization of coal in the Saudi power system.
The following page lists all coalfired power stations (including lignitefired) that are larger than 2,000 MW in current net capacity, which are currently operational or under construction. If station has also noncoalfired blocks, only coalfired capacity is listed.
Iran, which witnessed a coal mine blast in Golestan province in May in which more than 20 miners died, is pushing ahead with planned coal power plants, mostly in the coalrich area of Tabas in the

And there are now 78 countries using coal power, up from 66 in 2000. Another 16 plan to join the club, notably Egypt and the United Arab Emirates. CO2 emissions from existing plants are enough to breach the carbon budget for 1.5 or 2C. These limits would mean no new coal plants and closing 20% of the fleet early, according to one recent study.
Indian Coal have Sulphur content of about 0.2 to 0.3 % and hence Power Plants using only Indian Coal never gave any importance for So2 emissions. In fact no specific Environmental Standards were Prescribed for SO2 Emissions earlier , except those power plants located in Eco sensitive Zones and in Cities.
