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.

    BMI View: We are maintaining our 2014 forecasts for non-hydropower renewable generation and capacity in Australia this quarter as our assumptions remain relevant. We believe the Abbott administration is likely to succeed in abolishing the carbon pricing scheme in July 2014. This increases the risk for a policy vacuum to emerge as the Direct Action Policy proposed by the coalition is likely to require several amendments and negotiations. We also maintained our medium- to long-term forecasts as we......
  • Portugal Renewables Report Q2 2014
    Published: 9-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 37
    BMI View: Growth in the Portuguese renewable energy market continues to be sluggish, with the country's embattled economy weighing on growth prospects in the power and renewables industries. The wind sector dominates the renewables mix, but only registered capacity additions of under 200MW during 2013. We do not expect growth to pick up markedly as investor sentiment remains low and the renewables project pipeline is limited. Portugal adopted the E4 Programme (Energy Efficiency and Endogenous En......

    BMI View: The outlook for the South African renewables industry is positive, particularly compared with the conventional power sector. A number of projects have gone online over the last three months, including the 66MW Hopefield wind farm in South Africa's Western Cape and the 50MW solar power project in the De Aar municipality. Furthermore, we have repeatedly commented on the interest the South African renewables market has generated among international renewable energy developers, something t......
  • Canada Renewables Report Q2 2014

    BMI View: We have maintained our forecasts for Canada's non-hydro renewables industry this quarter as our fundamental assumptions of the market remain in place. The wealth of natural potential Canada has to generate renewable-sourced electricity generation is vast; and we have seen developments across the renewable energy segments, including marine, solar, wind and biomass. However, the lack of a national policy framework or subsidy scheme for renewables is likely to hinder the industry reaching......
  • Russia Renewables Report Q2 2014
    Published: 2-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 35
    BMI View: There is certainly potential in Russia for renewable energy development, and the government has begun to mobilise investment into the sector, by implementing a subsidy programme and renewable energy auction system. Although this has undoubtedly improved the prospects for the industry, progress has been slow and there are still a number of barriers that are likely to limit the renewables industry's growth prospects. These include the government's apparent preference for thermal and nucl......

  • Germany Renewables Report Q2 2014
    Published: 26-Mar-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 42
    BMI View: We believe that the reform of Germany's Renewable Energy Act is aimed at controlling the expansion of renewable energy, and not a sign of any retrenchment in policy. Whilst rising electricity prices are likely to remain a contentious issue for the government, industry groups, utilities and public alike, we believe that it is unlikely that the German energy policy - to aggressively pursue renewable energy and phase-out nuclear - will be altered under the Merkel-led government. As such, ......
  • Netherlands Renewables Report Q2 2014
    Published: 26-Mar-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 34
    BMI View: Growth of renewable energy in the Netherlands has stuttered due to repeated restating of renewable energy generation targets, from 20% to 16% to 14% by 2020, leaving little confidence in the market for investors. However subsidies have been increased and a range of projects are appearing in the pipeline, lending weight to a more positive outlook in the longer term, particularly for geothermal energy, which could show substantial development potential. Wind power generation is expected ......
