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: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 42
    Despite the political turmoil leading to a military coup in May 2014 there are signs that our previous forecast still holds in place as the ruling regime sees solar energy projects as key to attracting foreign investments scared off by recent events. In 2015 non-hydropower renewable generation will grow by around 16.0%, with growth primarily in solar and wind generation. Growth in solar will be driven by commercial- and residential-scale projects, with companies such as Thailand's SPCG maintaini......

    BMI View: The commissioning of Africa's largest solar plant aligns with our positive view on South Africa's rapidly expanding renewables industry. The outperformance of the country's renewables industry compared to the conventional power sector continues, and we believe could even serve to worsen the prospects for the power sector by drawing resources away from the expansion of thermal capacity. We have been tracking South Africa's rapidly expanding renewables industry over the last three years,......
  • Austria Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 11-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 31
    BMI View: Non-hydropower renewable energy generation in Austria is expected to continue to grow at stable levels in 2015, with wind energy bearing the bulk of capacity growth. However, low electricity prices and a continuing oversupply are putting pressure on the industries. We forecast non-hydropower renewables generation in Austria to grow by 6.15% in 2015. The bulk of the growth in electricity generation capacity through renewable energy systems continues to come from wind energy, while solar......

    BMI View: We have upwardly revised our solar capacity forecasts for Mexico over the next 10 years, due to a significant strengthening of the country's PV project pipeline. This development reinforces our already constructive outlook for the Mexican renewables sector, premised on Mexico's favourable natural conditions, elevated electricity prices and relatively attractive business environment. Mexico's adoption of the 'General Law on Climate Change' in June 2012 set a target of boosting the renew......
  • Portugal Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 11-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 35
    BMI View: Growth in the Portuguese renewable energy market continues to be sluggish, with the country's embattled economy weighing on prospects in the power and renewables industries. The wind sector dominates the renewables mix. We do not expect growth to pick up markedly as investor sentiment remains low and the renewables project pipeline is limited. Portugal has been pursuing a green energy agenda since 2001, adopting the E4 Programme (Energy Efficiency and Endogenous Energies) in the same y......
  • Taiwan Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 11-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 41
    BMI View: We are currently maintaining our forecasts for limited average annual growth of around 4% in Taiwan's renewable energy sector, as a lack of progress on major projects and limited legislative development is hindering the realisation of ambitious government green energy targets. While nuclear and thermal energy are expected to continue to dominate Taiwan's energy mix, solar power capacity is forecast to grow as much as 12.2% in 2015. Biomass and wind power will lead the way in terms of o......
  • Turkey Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 11-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 40
    BMI View: Turkey will remain committed to its renewable energy expansion plans in order to reduce fuel import costs at a time when power consumption in the country is set to surge and the lira continues to depreciate. Wind will drive the renewables expansion; but we highlight that the upsides are mounting for growth in solar capacity. Despite the dominance of thermal generated electricity, Turkey's renewables sector presents significant growth potential across most technologies, including wind, ......
  • Australia Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 4-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 39
    BMI View: The significant drop in investment into large-scale renewable energy in Australia during 2014 aligns with our underlying view of the country's renewables industry - which is clouded by policy uncertainty. The outcome of the RET review will greatly determine the growth of the Australian renewables sector for the next five years, and we expect it will most likely result in a reduction in the target. Since assuming office in September 2013, Prime Minister Tony Abbott and the Liberal-Natio......
  • Japan Renewables Report Q2 2015
    Published: 4-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 36
    BMI View: After years of sizeable growth, Japan's renewables expansion is slowing, as the government reigns in its support for renewable energy - in light of the government's continued commitment to nuclear power and the limitations with integrating renewables into the national grid. This is likely to have a knockon effect on the country's place in our Asia regional renewables index, as Japan's leading position is vulnerable to slippage over the coming quarters. Japan's renewables industry has b......
