BMI View: This quarter our fundamental assumptions for Denmark continue to be relevant. Taking into
account positive macroeconomic expectations for the Nordic region as well as sector trends, we continue to
expect power consumption growth in 2016. Similarly, we mainta ..."
BMI View: This quarter we have slightly revised our forecasts, as we expect coal-fired power to contract
further as a result of Finnish plans to phase-down coal by the late 2020s. At the same time we have
upgraded our forecast for biomass-fired power generation as we ..."
BMI View: We have improved our outlook for the Swedish non-hydropower renewables sector this quarter
- as the expansion of the REC scheme targets and implementation of the removal of tax exemptions for new
capacity will infuse greater regulatory certainty in the marke ..."
BMI View: As nuclear capacity is decommissioned throughout our 10-year forecast period, Belgium will
become increasingly reliant on electricity imports. Despite strong growth being evident in non-hydropower
renewable capacity, this will not be enough to cover the defi ..."
BMI View: We forecast that total electricity generation in the Czech Republic is set to decline by an annual
average of 2.2% throughout our 10-year forecast period. A lack of new power plants planned,
decommissioning of nuclear reactors and the lack of economic viabil ..."
BMI View: Investment in the Dutch power sector will remain focused on non-hydropower renewables after
the tenders for offshore wind farms was permitted to proceed. Policy uncertainty over the future of coalfired
power will deter thermal power investment. Generation in ..."
BMI View: The maturity of the Norwegian power market, coupled with surplus power generation, means
overall generation growth will remain limited. Hydropower will remain the dominant source of power at
over 94% of total generation, with ambitions to increase export cap ..."
BMI View: Recently elected Order and Justice (PiS) government's support for coal-fired generation and
proposed punitive requirements for wind power developers will dampen investor interest and ensure the
country's continued reliance on the strategically important coal ..."
BMI View: This quarter our main assumptions for the sector remain virtually unchanged. We continue to
forecast electricity generation to remain relatively flat - registering annual average growth of 0.88%
between 2016 and 2025. Coal will remain the biggest component o ..."
BMI View: Increased regulatory clarity, in form of the passing of the energy transition bill and the
adoption of ambitious long-term targets, will be conducive to robust renewables capacity growth in France
over the next decade. Robust government support across the re ..."
