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.

    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 31
    BMI View: We maintain our relatively muted forecast for Finland's non-hydropower renewables segment this quarter, as mooted cuts to wind power in order to curb subsidy costs will lower the long-term attractiveness of the sector, while the expansion in the biomass-fired power generation has yet to pick up sufficient steam to boost renewables growth rates.

    BMI View: Our Key Projects Database helps us identify a number of important trends in Indonesia's expanding renewables industry. Geothermal power will dominate the renewables mix over the coming 10 years, and Japanese companies will play a crucial role in the development of the sector, as ongoing logistical and bureaucratic challenges continue to be a key risk to project realisation.

    BMI View: Japan will remain one of the three largest renewables market in the Asia region over our 10- year forecast period, despite our projection that growth rates will slow over the coming years. Difficulties integrating solar projects into the electricity system and the government's focus on nuclear power underpin our view that the market will undergo a slowdown.

    BMI View: Morocco will be one of the most attractive markets for renewable energy investment in the MENA region over the next decade, primarily due to its supportive regulatory environment. This is evidenced by a growing project pipeline and strong investor interest in the market, which support our positive 10-year growth forecasts for non-hydro renewables capacity in the country. Latest Updates & Structural Trends ? The European Bank for Reconstruction and Developm......

    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 34
    BMI View: Investment in the New Zealand renewables sector could see new momentum over the coming quarters as a result of the retirement of several thermal power plants between 2015 and 2018. Uncertainty over future power demand - which could result in stranded assets - represents the biggest obstacle to new investment in the sector. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? In November 2015, Transpower, New Zealand's grid operator, said there would be an energy securit......
  • Russia Renewables Report Q2 2016
    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 39
    BMI View: High financing costs, currency volatility and increasingly stringent local content requirements 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. Consi......
  • Saudi Arabia Renewables Report Q1 2016
    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 32
    BMI View: Despite Saudi Arabia's considerable solar potential, we believe that the government's rationalisation of public spending amid low oil prices, coupled with muted investor sentiment due to pushback on solar power targets, will remain obstacles to growth in the country's nascent renewables industry. As a result, we maintain our conservative growth forecasts for the sector relative to government targets. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? The outlook for S......

    BMI View: South Africa's renewables project pipeline continues to strengthen, in line with our optimistic forecasts for renewables capacity in the country to total nearly 9.3GW by 2025. Solar and wind will be the technologies of choice and domestic South African companies will continue to dominate the competitive landscape, despite heavy investment from European companies. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? Renewables capacity in South Africa will grow by an ann......
  • Portugal Renewables Report Q1 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 36
    BMI forecasts Portugal's economic recovery will continue during the period 2016-2024, but will remain unremarkable, registering GDP growth rates of 2.61% in 2017 and 1.07% by 2022, a substantial improvement on the 4% contraction the country experienced in 2012. Renewables investors will be encouraged by this, and by government progress on making early repayments on the loan it received from the IMF in 2011. As indicated in BMI's previous Portugal Renewables Report, ......
