France Renewables Report Q1 2013

BMI View: We have revised down our 2013 growth forecast for non-hydropower renewable energy
generation due to the possibility for delays in wind projects and tougher operating for wind energy
producers. We have also revised down our long term forecast because of the lack of progress in the
country's ambitious offshore wind energy plans and the government's renewable energy agenda. We also
believe that France might not be able to undertake the grid investments necessary to increase the share of
renewables in the country's energy mix.
We have revised down our 2013 forecast of non-hydropower renewable energy generation growth from
11.6% to 8.6%. This was brought about mainly by a downward revision in our wind generation growth
forecast from 12.6% to 7.2%, due to the scope for delays in wind projects. According to several industry
sources, it currently takes eight years for a wind project to be completed due to a high level of
government bureaucracy, in contrast to the two years needed in Germany.
For the long term, we have revised down our average non-hydropower renewable generation growth
forecast from 8.6% to 7.1% per annum between 2013 and 2021. This is due to the tougher conditions for
wind energy producers mentioned above, the continued stagnation of the country's offshore plans, and a
lack of progress made by the government on its renewables agenda.
Here are the key trends and regulatory changes in the industry:
?? The elections held on May 06 2012 saw François Hollande, who has a markedly different stance
from the previous incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy on the France's energy policy, take the
presidency. Hollande has vowed to reduce France's dependence on nuclear power from 75% to
50% by 2025, and has stated that he would seek to increase the share of renewable energy during
his term.
?? The Eurozone debt crisis continues to loom over France, and unemployment in the country
stands at a 13-year high of 10%. The government is also facing difficulty in keeping its debt
situation in check, and these macroeconomic forces will hinder development of the sector.
?? The first round of offshore wind tenders was completed in April 2012. The tender comprised of
four sites along the country's North coast with a total capacity of 1.9GW. A consortium led by
French utility EDF won three of the four sites totaling 1.4GW of capacity. The remaining site
with a capacity of 0.5GW was awarded to a consortium led by Spanish utility Iberdrola.
?? The French Energy And Ecology Minister, Delphine Batho, announced that 214 solar projects
with a total capacity of 541MW were approved in two tenders over the last year. This strong
growth comes despite continued cuts to solar FiTs.

  • South Africa Renewables Report Q3 2016
    Published: 27-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 37
    BMI View: International solar manufacturers will increasingly set up production facilities in South Africa. This will be the result of South Africa's rapidly expanding solar market, which will increase demand for panels, the government's tightening local content requirements for renewable energy projects and the growing opportunities in the wider SSA solar market. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? We have previously noted in our analysis that international sola......

    BMI View: With the Brazilian economy's recession expected to worsen in 2016, the country's nonhydropower renewable market is expected to experience some headwinds as project financing becomes impeded. Although auctions in 2015 showed great stability and even some minor growth in its award levels, obstacles such as high interest rates and a weakened currency have led us to maintain our conservative overall estimates. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? For 2......

    Published: 20-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 33
    BMI View: Recent reductions to Japan's feed-in tariffs for solar power align with our long-held view that the Japanese renewables market will undergo a slowdown, amid the government's lessening support for the sector. Furthermore, the move echoes other mature global renewables markets, whereby governments are focusing more heavily on achieving sustainable growth, as opposed to very high installation rates. Latest Updates & Structural Trends: ? In mid-March it was an......

    Published: 20-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 40
    BMI View: High financing costs, currency volatility and increasingly continuing local content requirements (LCR) mean that growth in Russia's non-hydropower renewables segment will be limited over our 10-year forecast period. While the most recent tender provided another 365MW of projects, we expect these ongoing economic issues to result in the sector attracting limited investment, as investors will look elsewhere to grow their businesses, and likely project delays. The ......
  • Poland Renewables Report Q2 2016
    Published: 13-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 39
    BMI View: Mounting political risks in Poland made us substantially downgrade our forecasts for the growth in the Poland's renewables sector. The newly elected Law and Justice (PiS) government holds a robust support for the domestic coal sector, while at the same time proposing a number of restrictive legislations for the development of renewable energy sources, particularly the wind power segment. We believe this will result in a deteriorating operating and investment env......

    Published: 13-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 30
    BMI View: The UAE's position as a GCC regional hotspot for solar development will remain unrivalled over our 10-year forecast period, as advantageous climatic conditions, the increasing cost competitiveness of solar power and strong government commitment to power mix diversification drive growth. The strengthening project pipeline is testament to this view. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? Our Key Projects Database highlights that there is over 1.5GW of renewa......
  • Italy Renewables Report Q2 2016
    Published: 06-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 45
    BMI View: We maintain our downbeat outlook for the Italian non-hydropower renewables segment this quarter, as lack of short-term and long-term regulatory clarity will weigh on growth in the sector. Solar PV will offer the main avenue of growth in Italy, as the technology has reached grid parity in parts of country, but investor sentiment will remain weak on account of the retroactive cuts implemented in the PV sector in 2013. Latest Updates And Structural Trends......
  • Kenya Renewables Report Q2 2016
    Published: 06-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 35
    BMI View: Kenya will emerge as the second largest non-hydro renewables market in SSA over the course of the decade, as the government's ongoing commitment to the sector and the country's significant geothermal potential, will drive growth. In terms of contribution to the electricity mix, non-hydro renewables will contribute over 50% to the total, the highest of any country in SSA. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? It was announced in February 2016, that Ormat T......
  • Netherlands Renewables Report Q2 2016
    Published: 06-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 44
    BMI View: While growth in non-hydropower renewable generation and capacity is expected to see only a slight uptick in 2016 over 2015, our outlook for the Dutch renewables market in the medium term continues to improve. In particular, wind power is likely to see increased development in line with the new offshore wind power bill, unless further delays undermine its timely implementation. At the same time, biomass has fallen victim to plans for a complete phasing-out of coa......
