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.

  • Austria Renewables Report Q3 2016
    Published: 29-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 36
    BMI View: Austria continues to be one of the largest markets for renewable energy in Europe. Continuing low electricity prices however undermine the economic viability of non-hydro renewables projects. In addition, the lack of ambitious long-term renewables targets and the meeting of Austria's 2020 targets before the deadline provide little incentive for stronger renewables support in this unfavourable market climate. This has led to cuts in FiT rates for both solar and w......

    BMI View: The results of Mexico's first long-term energy auction prompted an upward revision of our growth forecasts for the country's non-hydropower renewables industry, and illustrated the immense potential of Mexico's solar sector. However, despite strong fundamentals and bullish growth rates across the industry, we believe that the country will fall short of its ambitious targets for renewable energy over the coming decade.

    Published: 29-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 50
    BMI View: Although the Philippine government is vocal in its support for renewable energy as a key strategy against climate change, high electricity prices have resulted in continuous support for coal power. Regarding non-hydropower renewables, the country has already largely saturated its geothermal power market, causing investments to move to other renewable sources, particularly wind and solar, which are also backed up by governmental Feed-in-Tariff programmes. However......

    BMI View: We maintain our long-held positive outlook for China's non-hydro renewables sector and expect growth to remain robust - in line with the government's ambitious targets for renewables capacity. The increased adoption of renewable energy will lessen coal's dominance of the power mix - a key priority for the government given the ongoing pollution concerns. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? The Chinese government remains committed to boosting the clean en......
  • Czech Republic Renewables Report Q3 2016
    Published: 22-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 33
    BMI View: We expect the non-hydropower renewables sector to remain stagnant over the coming decade as investor interest in the market remains subdued. Concerns about the country's economic competiveness and previous difficulties with setting renewables subsidies at a sustainable level have 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 industry.......
  • Germany Renewables Report Q3 2016
    Published: 15-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    BMI View: We maintain our upbeat outlook for the German non-hydropower renewables sector this quarter - with wind power driving growth amid a solar sector slowdown. The introduction of a competitive auctions system by 2017 will stabilise growth at a slower, albeit more sustainable rate over the next decade, in light of rapid growth over the last decade. This will be the result of a government aim to make the segment more competitive in order to curb subsidy support growth......

    BMI View: Morocco will be one of the fastest growing renewables markets in the MENA region over the coming decade. Our positive outlook is underpinned by the country's strong renewables project pipeline, sustained investor interest as well as ambitious government targets to develop renewable energy. That said, we highlight risks associated with a still underdeveloped policy environment as well as high levels of corruption. Latest Updates & Structural Trends ? ......
  • New Zealand Renewables Report Q3 2016
    Published: 15-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 35
    BMI View: Non-hydropower renewable capacity and generation growth in New Zealand is forecast to remain subdued in 2016, with rates of 0.11% and 1.74% respectively. While new impetus is expected to come from the retirement of thermal power plants over the coming years, the weak project pipeline has resulted in the extension of operation of the Huntly power plant until 2022. Stronger growth in the sector is further undermined by a decreasing energy demand and the lack of a ......
