  • Australia Renewables Report Q3 2015
    Published: 13-May-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 42
    BMI View: The continued political deadlock over the RET in Australia is jeopardising the growth of the domestic renewables industry significantly. Until the RET can be agreed, the future of the sector remains largely in the balance, with investment decisions likely to be stalled or abandoned entirely. Since assuming office in September 2013, Prime Minister Tony Abbott and the Liberal-National coalition have taken several divisive steps to scale-back or repeal emissions reduction and green energy......
  • Poland Renewables Report Q3 2015
    Published: 13-May-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 44
    BMI View: Poland's reluctance to adopt stringent EU emissions targets for 2030 sends warning signals to potential investors in the country's renewables industry. Poland's wavering support for renewable energy and - by extension - the uncertain regulatory environment has long been a key concern, undermining the long-term growth prospects of the sector. This uncertainty is reflected in what was believed to be, in April 2014 the final approval by the Polish government of the RES law: on the contrar......
  • Argentina Renewables Report Q3 2015
    Published: 6-May-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 38
    BMI View: Despite an attractive regulatory framework and ambitious government plans for expansion, we maintain a relatively bearish outlook towards the Argentine renewables industry. An unappealing business environment and limited project financing opportunities will continue to limit the sector's growth potential over the forecast period. Argentina's positive regulatory framework for renewables on the surface looks appealing to investors. For example, the country has adopted an ambitious target......
  • Mexico Renewables Report Q3 2015
    Published: 6-May-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 39
    BMI View: Mexico's renewables industry is facing mounting headwinds in the form of falling electricity prices, which threaten to erode the sector's cost competitiveness relative to thermal power generation. Overall, however, we believe that the positive fundamentals of the market, including the conducive policy environment, outweigh the risks; a view supported by the strong investor interest in the market and continued strengthening of the project pipeline. Mexico's adoption of the 'General Law ......
  • Austria Renewables Report Q3 2015
    Published: 29-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 30
    BMI View: Austria's non-hydropower energy generation continues to grow strongly towards meeting its 2020 target long before the deadline. While electricity prices and a contemporary general oversupply of electricity continue to exert pressure on the market, we expect solid growth in the wind energy and the solar energy sectors for 2015. Carried by its large hydropower sector, Austria achieved the fourth highest level of renewable energy share in electricity generation in 2013, according to a Mar......

    Published: 8-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 34
    BMI View: After a few years of impressive growth, the Greek non-hydro renewables industry experienced a sharp slowdown in 2014, largely on account of regulatory changes, introduced under the New Deal in mid-2014. While several recent project announcements highlight industry potential, the regulatory challenges will continue hindering future expansion. Measures to address the deficit of the country's power regulator LAGIE's deficit (which funds renewable energy), under the New Deal, introduced in......
  • France Renewables Report Q2 2015

    BMI View: While we are maintaining our forecasts for the non-hydropower renewable energy sector in France for 2015, the passing of the long-awaited energy bill at the end of July 2014 marked an important step forward towards the reduction of the country's reliance on nuclear energy sources over the medium to long term. However, we note that the proposed policy mechanisms are mainly aimed at the reduction of electricity demand and greater energy sufficiency and do not address the question of retu......
  • Canada Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 3-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 56
    BMI View: Although wind power remains the largest sub-sector of the Canadian non-hydro renewables market, we foresee a solid increase in solar generation capacity for 2015, followed by years of steady growth. Nonetheless, as the overall market continues to suffer from the lack of a central national support scheme, we do not see the country achieving its self-imposed emission reduction targets and also had to revise down our ten-year forecast for non-hydro renewable growth. Low oil prices and lit......
