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.

  • France Power Report Q2 2014
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 72
    BMI View: The government is taking steps to reduce France's dependence upon nuclear power, and by end-2014, it is expected to adopt a law to determine how to do this. This follows on from President Hollande's electoral promise to curb the use of nuclear power. But non-government bodies, such as the Renewable Energy Syndicate, believe that the government is not moving fast enough to meet its target - that 50% of electricity is generated by non-nuclear sources in 2025. We highlight that the govern......
  • Italy Power Report Q2 2014
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 69
    BMI View: Italy is trying hard to appeal to international investors, with the government reorganising its holdings in gas and power grid networks, and signing investment fund agreements with potential trade partners, such as Russia. But the country is still suffering in the face of economic challenges, and the austerity measures proposed to turn the economy around are unpopular. As such, it is of little surprise that firms such as E.ON are reconsidering their role in Italy's electricity market. ......

  • Egypt Power Report Q2 2014
    Published: 9-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    BMI View: Our outlook for the Egypt power sector remains in place this quarter, as the political situation in the country remains in a state of flux. With power remaining a hot political issue, the country is in desperate need of increasing its power capacity by expanding its electricity infrastructure. However, we believe the challenge of ramping up supply is immense; not only does it require a re-prioritisation of natural gas feedstock away from exports and towards domestic consumption, but we......
  • Iran Power Report Q2 2014
    Published: 9-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    BMI View: The deal between Iran and the international community, brokered in late 2013, has stoked optimism that the way can be cleared for the Iranian government to push ahead with developing the country's nuclear power industry. However, a more wide-ranging deal has yet to be agreed, and risks are growing that the hoped-for loosening of international sanctions will not materialise. Iran will continue to rely largely on conventional thermal sources for electricity generation, with many of the p......

    BMI View: Kuwait's first public-private partnership for the construction of the 1.5GW al-Zour power plant and desalination plant has the potential to set a precedent for greater private sector engagement within Kuwait's infrastructure and power sectors. The country, which relies almost entirely on conventional thermal sources for electricity generation, has suffered from power shortages in recent months. With demand for power likely to continue rising rapidly in the years ahead, the government i......
