Kiel Power Station was a 354-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

An 800-MW extension at Kiel was cancelled in July 2009.

In 2008, Power in Europe reported that the project had been "postponed for three years" and that the company would "wait to see what happens with carbon capture and storage technology before proceeding with a big central plant." The newsletter noted that the project had been put on the backburner following protests.
2009: Project Abandoned
According to Deutsche Umweltshilfe, the project was abandoned in 2009 due to political pressure from a new local government. Instead, assessments were being undertaken for a gas plant.
