About Ember

We are an independent energy think tank that uses data-driven insights to shift the world from coal to clean electricity.

Data into action


We gather, curate and analyse data on the global power sector and its impact on the climate.


We use our data-driven insights to shift the conversation towards high impact policies and empower other advocates to do the same.

Global Electricity Review 2022
Shining a spotlight on coal mine methane

Our work raising awareness about coal mine methane - and its solutions - has been critical in shaping the EU methane strategy and helping to establish the coal mine methane program at UNEP.

Making global electricity data free and accessible

Open electricity data is crucial to a successful transition. We provide the world's only open dataset on global electricity generation and publish transparency reports about where to find the best quality data.
