About GEO

GEO is a set of free interactive databases and tools built collaboratively by people like you


GOAL: to promote an understanding, on a global scale, of the dynamics of change in energy systems, quantify emissions and their impacts, and accelerate the transition to carbon-neutral, environmentally benign energy systems while providing affordable energy to all.


By providing easy to use and visualize data, models and analysis tools we aim to engage the public and the experts.


Data in GEO can be edited from anywhere in the world.


We invite collaborations to help build GEO.

Energy Overview of Belarus

Most of the current generation of electric power is from thermal power plants installed during the Soviet period (1960s and 1970s) using natural gas and fuel oil. The natural gas is imported from Russia. These power plants are at the end of their planned lives and badly in need of repairs.

China is helping Belarus develop combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) units. The first 450 MW unit is operational at Minsk CHP-5. Two more are under construction at Lukoml and Bereza SDPP by China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) and funded by the Chinese. There are smaller GT units at other power plants.

A number of small hydro power plants, 1-40 MW, are under development and nuclear power is being considered strongly.

  1. 2012: The total installed capacity of thermal power plants is about 8 GW
