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.

  • Botswana Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 24-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 52
    BMI View: Coal-fired power is set to dominate Botswana's power sector as total power generation will grow at an annual average of 38% over our 10-year forecast period. The majority of growth will occur from 2019-2020 as new coal-fired capacity comes online while existing capacity is upgraded, enabling Botswana to be less reliant on electricity imports. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? Botswana's government has stated that it will approach two South Korean firm......
  • Columbia Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 24-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 59
    BMI View: Venezuela's suspension of natural gas exports to Colombia will increase pressure on the Colombian power system in 2016 as the country ramps up thermal generation to weather the drought brought on by El Niño. Weighing further on the stability of Colombia's electricity system, the country's power fleet has suffered a number of technical accidents. In late February, one of the turbines of the 610MW Termoflores plant was damaged. While the government announced it is......
  • Denmark Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 24-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    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 maintain our long-held view that, while growth expectations in the region are improving, economic woes in the eurozone remain a major risk factor for the consumption and generation outlook of the country, as more r......
  • Finland Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 24-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 50
    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 believe that it will form a key component of Finnish renewables strategy over the next decade, owing to the government's aim to restructure the country's forest-related industry - in order to adapt to a fall ......
  • Ghana Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 24-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: Underperforming hydropower and gas feedstock irregularities will keep Ghana's power generation subdued over our 10-year forecast period. An annual average growth rate of 2.2% is forecast, driven mostly by new gas-fired capacity and the commissioning of the Ayitepa wind farm. Significant potential for thermal power investment remains, provided gas exploration obstacles are overcome. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? The second phase of the Asogli gas-f......
  • Global Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 24-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 52
    BMI View: Growth in electricity generation and all types of capacity will be driven primarily by the expansion in Asia's power sector over our forecast period, as strong economic growth, power sector reform and demand for electricity necessitate investment in electricity supply. Coal will remain the primary source of fuel for global power generation over our forecast period, as many Asian countries look to meet power demand using cheap fuel - despite mounting pressure to ......
  • Mozambique Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 24-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 51
    BMI View: Mozambican power generation will remain subdued, owing to a lack of progress on planned power plants throughout our 10-year forecast period. Gas and coal reserves provide opportunities for growth in thermal power generation, while investments into grid infrastructure will be required to boost electrification rates. Latest Updates and Structural Trends ? A gas-fired power plant is being planned for the city of Maputo, to be completed in 2018. With a g......
  • Namibia Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 24-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    BMI View: Namibia will remain a net-importer of electricity due to lack of new power projects coming online. Political and pricing issues cause delays to gas-fired and hydroelectric power projects. We expect this will lead to an increase in non-hydropower renewables investment, as is evidenced by new solar and wind power projects being planned. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? The Erongo gas-fired power plant is on hold, as courts have to decide on whether Xar......
  • Pakistan Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 24-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: A lack of generation capacity, insufficient investment, as well as fuel and water shortages have narrowed the supply/demand margin considerably, negatively impacting economic activity across Pakistan. Supply shortages will be a dominant theme clouding Pakistan's power sector over the near term. Over the medium- to long term, the incorporation of non-hydro renewables into the electricity mix, the surge in coalfired power generation - and consequently the signific......
