Coal Power Plant Redevelopment
The tool serves as a public database and map for the purposes of enabling state and local economic development officials, project developers, and power plant owners to identify and pursue opportunities for plant redevelopment and community reinvestment.
The Coal Power Plant Redevelopment Visualization Tool identifies coal power plants that have been closed or set-to-retire, alongside key infrastructure characteristics that are relevant for potential redevelopment opportunities. These include, but are not limited to:
- Electric Transmission Lines
- EPA Brownfield Sites (assessed with Federal funding)
- Petroleum Terminals
The tool will be updated periodically to provide relevant information to enable state and local economic development officials, project developers, and power plant owners to identify and pursue opportunities for redevelopment, economic revitalization, and community reinvestment.

This application is designed to help identify and provide insights into recent and planned U.S. coal power plants closures, associated infrastructure, and conditions that are necessary to understand and evaluate repurposing opportunities. Within this application recent or planned U.S. Coal Power Plant closures are defined as plant locations where all on-site generators use coal as the fuel source, and where the last on-site generator was retired after Jan. 1, 2015 or is planned to retire on or before Dec. 31, 2030 (EIA, 2022).
