FRANKFURT, April 1 (Reuters) - The table below details the building plans of Germany's power plant owners and operators, based on information gathered by industry association BDEW and presented at the annual Hannover industrial fair on Monday.
BDEW, which mainly represents power-generating utilities, said it knew of 64 units being planned, but only 10 plants were under construction, including 600 megawatts (MW) of gas plant capacity.
It asked for incentives for gas-fired and pumped storage plants that have become unprofitable under current legislative and market conditions.
BDEW members have cast doubts on the plans for many projects as the market was unprofitable for years and has only just come closer to prices justifying new building activity.
For simplicity, this table shows only projects above 200 MW. A handful of smaller offshore wind and small gas-to-power plants at Kiel, Mainz and Wolfsburg are not listed, although they count towards the total numbers presented by BDEW.
