TABLE-German utilities' plans for new capacity

FRANKFURT, April 13 (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 said 74 units representing around 33,000 megawatts (MW) of output could be built in
theory by 2025. 
    But at the moment, plans for 39 units of those units are in doubt due to the largely
unprofitable market for conventional plants, BDEW said. 
    Of the total, some 7,100 MW are being planned but are uncertain, 9,100 MW are awaiting final
approval, and 17,300 MW have a high certainty of being realised, it said.
    This table only shows projects above 200 MW, including large-scale wind farms in the North
Sea and Baltic Sea. Smaller wind, gas, biomass, solar, run-of-river and waste projects typically
with an output of 20 to 150 MW are not listed here, although they count towards the total
