  • Indonesia Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 1-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 36
    BMI View: Our bullish outlook for renewable energy in Indonesia is based on a number of key fundamentals. These include the pressing need to meet growing electricity demand across the country (particularly in off-grid remote areas), the government's strong commitment to diversifying the power mix through the adoption of renewable energy and Indonesia's significant geothermal and solar energy potential - stemming from favourable geographic characteristics. Growth will occur across the spectrum of......
  • South Korea Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 1-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 33
    We are maintaining our 2015 growth forecast for non-hydropower renewable energy in South Korea this quarter as our assumptions for the sector remain relevant. Growth in 2015 will be driven primarily by wind and biomass, and solar to a lesser extent. We have also maintained our long-term forecasts for renewable energy, and expect non-hydropower generation to grow an average of 12.9% per annum between 2015 and 2024. Key Trends And Developments: ? South Korea replaced its feed-in tariff system with......
  • Netherlands Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 25-Mar-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 35
    BMI View: While we expect growth to slow down in 2015 compared to previous years, with several largescale investments and projects in the pipeline, rates are likely to pick up over the coming years. Nonetheless, a recent report stating doubts about whether the Netherlands will be able to meet their 2020 targets of 14% depict continued ambivalence on the Dutch renewable energies market between governmental incentives, public support and market returns. Ongoing government subsidies and a longterm ......
  • Italy Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 18-Mar-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 34
    BMI View: Although we forecast non-hydropower renewable generation to cross the 20% mark of overall electricity generation in 2015, year-on-year growth is expected to fall to 3.3%. Also our long-term outlook for the sector remains subdued, growing by an average of 2.13% annually between 2015 and 2024. Reasons for this include the ongoing volatile economic situation and uncertainties over governmental subsidies following the stop of new solar Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs) in 2013. Key Trends And Develop......
  • Nordics Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 18-Mar-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 51
    BMI View: This quarter we have extended our forecast to 2024. This notwithstanding, our projections for non-hydropower renewable energy generation in Denmark, Finland and Sweden are largely unchanged, as our fundamental assumption for the Nordic markets considered in the report remain unvaried. Key projects in the region continue to progress in line with our expectations, with Denmark's progressive loss of its energy self-sufficient status likely to lead the country to a greater focus on the pro......
  • Philippines Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 18-Mar-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 43
    BMI View: As energy demands continue to rise in the Philippines and fear of electricity shortfalls for the summer 2015 remain, the market has attracted a multitude of new projects - especially in the wind, solar and biomass sectors. While the geothermal energy market is largely saturated, we see the greatest potential for investors and growth in the wind, solar and biomassse sectors. However, increasing domestic coal production and the construction of new coal power plants question the scale of ......
  • Czech Republic Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 18-Mar-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 36
    BMI View: This quarter we have extended our forecasts to 2024. This notwithstanding, we continue to see limited opportunities in the Czech renewable market at present, as concerns over the country's economic competiveness and previous difficulties with setting renewables subsidies at a sustainable level, has led the government to scale back, and almost abandon, its pursuit of renewable energy. With cheaper fuel sources taking priority, we maintain our reserved outlook for the sector, expecting n......
  • United Kingdom Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 11-Mar-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    BMI View: The confusion surrounding the UK's renewables energy agenda is likely to have a detrimental impact on investment levels into the sector. That said, compared to other well developed renewable energy markets in Europe, the UK still presents investment opportunities for developers. We highlight the expanding offshore wind segment and distributed energy solutions (DES) as two such growth areas. However the political uncertainty in the run-up to the 2015 general election will cloud UK energ......
  • Russia Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 11-Mar-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 35
    BMI View: We have lowered our forecasts for the Russian renewables industry this quarter, due to the impact of the steep losses suffered by the Russian rouble linked to plunging oil prices and US sanctions. Despite a wealth of potential, the prospects for the industry remain muted owing to the inhibitive regulatory environment for renewable energy and the lack of investor interest in the market. We maintain that Russian energy policy is oriented eastwards toward China in the wake of deterioratin......
