BMI View: From this quarter BMI's Power service will focus chiefly on thermal sources, hydropower
and nuclear electricity, while developments pertinent to the green segment will be discussed in depth by
our Renewables service. That said, we continue to provide a detailed overview of the dynamics affecting
the power sector. Despite a year having passed since the German government's U-turn on nuclear power,
the country is still looking for an appropriate strategy that will provide sufficient electricity. Such a
strategy must also allow the country to respect its carbon emissions commitments and limit price rises.
While natural gas appears likely to be the replacement fuel from an environmental perspective, cheap
coal remains the most profitable way to produce electricity. On the greener side of the power spectrum,
Germany has retained its position as Europe's bellwether for renewable energy, but not without
controversy - owing primarily to the high costs associated with the deployment of these technologies.
The key trends and developments in the German electricity market are:
News that consumers, utilities and members of the German government are beginning to voice
concerns about the associated costs of Germany's energy U-turn reconfirms our view that the
new energy agenda presents a significant financial burden to the country. With the nuclear
phase-out already weakening German utilities, the enormous cost of incorporating renewable
energy into the electricity mix is unsustainable, unless domestic electricity prices are increased
substantially.
We have revised our forecast to take into account larger-than-expected coal usage. While natural
gas appears to be the most likely replacement fuel from an environmental perspective, cheap
coal remains a more profitable way to produce electricity in the country. On June 28 2012, the
Bundestag approved cuts to incentives for the solar power industry that were milder and more
watered down than expected. Following an agreement reached with the help of a mediation
committee, plans to introduce a 90% limit on incentives for larger solar power plants of over 10
kilowatts (KW) were dropped, and will instead be introduced in 2014.
Delays in connecting wind farms to the power grid - as well as grid outages after the plants have
started operations - are jeopardising Germany's ambitious offshore wind target. Whilst the quick
implementation of new liability regulations could play a role in restoring economic viability in
the short-term, we remain of the opinion that a more comprehensive plan of investment in the
country's grid will be key for the successful integration of offshore wind power into the mix.

  • Israel Power Report Q1 2016
    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 60
    BMI View: During the period 2016 until 2024, BMI forecasts Israel's total power output will increase from 68.55TWh to 96.91TWh, equivalent to a year-on-year (y-o-y) average growth rate of 4.44%. Increasingly, natural gas will play a more dominant role in the country's power makeup, as the government seeks to capitalise on the enormous Tamar and Leviathan gas finds made off its coasts during 2009 and 2010 respectively. For many commentators, the gas discoveries repre......
  • Netherlands Power Report Q2 2016
    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 51
    BMI View: The Netherlands has a relatively mature power sector, that will experience slow power generation growth over the next five years as new capacity is offset by older power plants being phased out. The majority of growth will come from renewable power, especially wind farms, as the government tries to reduce emissions. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? Very little generation growth is expected in the Netherlands, as the addition of new power plants is of......
  • Venezuela Power Report Q2 2016
    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 51
    BMI View: Venezuela's power sector continues to struggle under high demand with extensive outages caused by ageing infrastructure and a lack of sufficient capacity. With oil revenues falling, extensive subsidies and a generally uninspiring economic environment, we do not expect to see any significant investment, either public of private, in power infrastructure in the short- to medium-term. As such our forecasts for growth in generation and capacity remain broadly unchang......
  • Austria Power Report Q1 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 51
    BMI View: The focus of the Austrian power sector is increasingly on the development of renewable energy, supported by ambitious government targets and generous subsidies and feed-in-tariffs. Thermal energy will see more limited investment, in part due to falling regional energy prices which is dampening investor interest, although we do expect to see some growth in natural gas generation which will offset the contraction in coal and oil over the forecast period and provid......
  • Iran Power Report Q1 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    The signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action between the Iranian government and the PG+1, comprised of the five permanent members of the Security Council and Germany, an agreement aimed at bringing an end to sanctions on Iran through agreement on the country's nuclear programme, has precipitated considerable activity among foreign investors looking to take advantage of the country's considerable market for electricity, both in terms of domestic supply and export.......
  • Qatar Power Report Q1 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 52
    BMI View: Qatar's power sector is growing rapidly as new generation and capacity is brought online in order to keep up with ever-rising demand, driven by extensive public investment in new infrastructure projects and rapid population growth. The country benefits from enormous natural gas reserves which, as well as being a key export, provides the fuel for almost the entirety of the domestic energy mix. While we do expect to see some limited renewable energy capacity enter......
  • Slovakia Power Report Q1 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 56
    BMI View: The short-term outlook for Slovakia's power sector is relatively weak, with declining output from thermal and coal generation leading to an overall contraction in total generation in 2015. The expansion of nuclear power does mean, however, that from 2016 onwards we expect to see substantial increases in total generation in Slovakia, with nuclear generation expected to increase by nearly a quarter in 2016 alone. The power infrastructure project pipeline remains d......
  • South Africa Power Report Q1 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 67
    BMI View: Our negative outlook for South Africa's power sector continues to remain in place this quarter. Inefficient existing generation capacity, a lack of investment, delays to project commissioning and the precarious financial situation of Eskom show little sign of abating over the short- to- medium-term. On a more positive note, we highlight that South Africa's power plant and transmission grid infrastructure will continue to offer investment opportunities over our f......
  • South Korea Power Report Q1 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 59
    BMI View: The outlook for South Korea's renewables industry remains muted, despite the recent announcement of the government's clean energy investment plan. The country's challenging regulatory environment for renewables and the availability of cheaper sources of power, notably nuclear and coal, will undermine investment into the sector. We forecast overall power generation to grow at an average of 3.6% a year between 2015 and 2024, reaching 761.4 terawatt hours (TW......
