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.

    Already a major renewable powerhouse, the US non-hydroelectric renewables market is poised for strong growth levels in our ten-year forecast of about 8% capacity growth, primarily on the solar market. Overall, we expect an added 131GW of non-hydro renewable capacity by 2025. While this growth is carried significantly by the five-year tax credit extension until 2020, the outcome of the November presidential election will decide over the country's energy path of the nex......

    Published: 17-Aug-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 37
    BMI View: We maintain our relatively upbeat outlook for the Finnish non-hydropower renewables sector this quarter, as government support for biomass power, in order to create an outlet for growth for declining traditional forest-related industry and boost coal-power conversions, will ensure growth in the sector. In contrast, we expect the attractiveness of the wind power sector to contract over the coming years, as the restricted access to the feed-in-tariff scheme sugges......

    BMI View: Despite ambitious targets and strong political support, the expansion in Taiwan's non-hydro renewables sector will remain below its potential primarily due to the country's unstable regulatory environment and low liberalisation levels in the power sector. Considering Taiwan's commitment to phaseout nuclear power by 2025 and the significant solar panel manufacturing base in the country, we do expect growth to pick up marginally across our 10-year forecast period.......

    BMI View: Supportive policy and regulatory environment, combined with the government's strong commitment to diversify the power mix, will continue to attract investment into Thailand's non-hydro renewables industry over the coming decade. Growth will be driven by particularly strong expansion in the solar segment, with notable additions coming from biomass & waste sectors. Nonetheless, we believe the progress will be too slow to achieve the country's ambitious renewables ......
