Carbon Tracker Announced New Project to Quantify Emissions From Big Power Plants

Carbon Tracker on Monday announced a new project to quantify carbon emissions from large power plants across the globe using satellite imagery and make this information available to the public.

The financial think-tank was selected for the project, funded by a $1.7 million grant from Google.org, through the Google AI Impact Challenge.

It will collaborate with WattTime and WRI to use data and hold polluting plants accountable to environmental standards and enable advanced new emissions reduction technologies.

“Carbon Tracker is the first organisation to pioneer satellite-based power plant monitoring. We are excited to continue this innovative analysis in collaboration with our colleagues at WattTime and WRI,” said Matt Gray, head of power and utilities at Carbon Tracker.

The project will work by leveraging the growing global satellite network to observe power plants from space. Read More
