TABLE-German utilities' plans for new capacity

    FRANKFURT, April 24 (Reuters) - The table below details the building plans of Germany's
power plant operators based on information gathered by industry association BDEW and presented
at the annual Hanover industrial fair on Monday.
    BDEW, which mainly represents power-generating utilities, said 55 units representing around
25,332 megawatts (MW) of capacity could be built in theory.
    But at the moment, BDEW members have cast doubts on plans for many units due to the largely
unprofitable market for conventional plants fired with gas or those using water for pumped
storage hydro electricity, BDEW said in related statements.                        
    For simplicity, this table shows only projects above 200 MW. A handful of smaller offshore
wind and two small gas-to-power plants at Kiel and Mainz are not listed, although they count
towards the total number.
