BMI View: Albania's crude oil production growth will slow in 2015 as companies' financial positions are
weakened by lower oil prices. Prospects remain good for further redevelopments at existing oilfields, while
both onshore and offshore exploration offers upside pote ..."
BMI View: France's power market is very well developed and dominated by the energy giant EDF. As a
mature market we do not expect to see significant growth in generation over the forecast period, though
renewables are attracting investment making this a potential grow ..."
BMI View: We reiterate our negative outlook for the Greek upstream sector as the nebulous fiscal and
regulatory environment at a time of low oil prices will dent industry interest in the licensing round due in
July 2015. Greece's importance in the regional oil and gas ..."
BMI View: Strong legal, political and social pressures will see large gas production cuts at the key
Groningen gas field from 2015 onwards. This will greatly reduce the Netherlands' role as a key swing gas
supplier to Western Europe over the decade as early as 2015. ..."
BMI View: Although current domestic production of oil and gas is negligible, with imports meeting around
99% of current demand, we are witnessing a gradual but notable uptick in investment targeting Spain's
upstream. The acceleration of onshore and offshore activity c ..."
Li-ion batteries are rechargeable batteries used for powering AEVs. The use of battery-operated vehicles helps to reduce carbon emissions and the dependence on other fossil fuels. Li-ion batteries are used as an alternate source of power in HEVs, while in BEVs and PHEVs, they ..."
A Li-ion battery is used as a power source in EVs for transportation. It is used as an alternative source of power in PHEVs and a primary source of power in BEVs. A Li-ion battery powers the electric motor used for propulsion in a BEV. A PHEV uses both an IC engine and an elec ..."
BMI View: Political debate and controversy surrounding shale gas has continued and as a result, the outlook
for both upstream exploration and production remains weak. The latest developments in the downstream
sector, including the conversion of one facility in to a bi ..."
BMI View: Germany's non-hydropower renewables market continues to grow steadily in 2015. While EEG
reforms of 2014 have led to some cost reductions, it threatens to also result in lower-than-expected growth
in the near future, risking Germany to fall short of its Euro ..."
After a decade of impressive growth, the Greek non-hydro renewables industry came to a standstill in 2014,
largely on account of regulatory changes introduced under the New Deal in mid-2014, as well as due to
persisting economic challenges. While several recent projec ..."
