BMI View: Plans to develop Iran’s nuclear capacity are central to the country’s power industry and its
ability to meet its energy requirements. Given huge international resistance, there is no certainty of
continuing nuclear availability, let alone additional reactors. Efforts to halt the nuclear programme will
persist and sanctions will make it hard to maintain a high level of investment. Iran would benefit from
more rapid development of its renewables potential as a means of reducing oil and gas dependency.
Conventional thermal sources are expected to remain the dominant fuel for electricity generation, with
many of the power projects that are currently under construction due to use gas. Expansion of Iran’s
nuclear capacity is planned, but external political resistance means it is far from certain whether further
reactors will be built. Talks continue with the aim of ending the stalemate but, at the time of writing, no
breakthrough was imminent.
Key trends and recent developments in the Iranian electricity market include:
? Majid Salehi, the managing director of Iran Power Development Company, has revealed
that around 23 new power plants will begin production by the end of the government’s
tenure in the next Iranian year, starting March 2013. Investment of approximately IRR50trn
will be required for the projects, which will be developed as part of the energy ministry’s
Mehr Mandegar programme. The 648MW Kermanshah Power Plant will be the first to start
production, while the gas-fired units of the Zanjan, Semnan and Shahround power plants
should become operational in the coming months. The ministry has granted permits for the
private sector construction of renewable energy power plants, with a combined production
capacity of 12 gigawatts (GW), according to Iran Renewable Energy Organisation’s
Managing Director, Yousef Armodeli.
? In late May 2012, Iran’s government terminated a contract that was awarded to China for the
construction of the Bakhtiari hydropower plant in the south west of the country, according
to Energy Minister Majid Namjou. China’s proposed US$2bn financial package for the
1,500 megawatt (MW) plant was rejected by the Iranian Central Bank, with the project now
being awarded to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ engineering arm, Khatam al-
Anbiya. The cancellation of the contract could have an adverse impact on the economic
relationship between China and Iran.
? During the period 2012-2021, Iran’s overall power generation is expected to increase by an
annual average of 2.47%, to 275.9 terawatt hours (TWh). Driving this growth is the build-up
of output from the country’s first nuclear power facility, which was connected to the grid in
2012 and should be generating power on a commercial scale before the end of 2012. Nonhydro
renewables are expected to deliver average annual supply growth of 4.43%.
? With Iran’s 2012 real GDP expected to have decreased by 1.2%, BMI forecasts average
annual growth of 2.4% between 2012 and 2021. The population is expected to rise from the
current level of 75.6mn to 81.5mn during the period to 2021, and net power consumption
looks set to increase from 176.6TWh to 228.7TWh by 2021. During the period 2012-2021,
the average annual growth rate for electricity demand is forecast at 2.60%.
? Thanks partly to the projected rise in net generation, growth of which falls somewhat short of
the underlying demand trend, Iran’s power supply surplus is likely to stagnate over the
medium term, although the country is keen to develop its power export capability. A decline
in the percentage of transmission and distribution (T&D) losses from an estimated 17.3% to
16.3% will help balance the market. The estimated net export capability in 2021 is put at

    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 75
    BMI View: Brazil's power sector continues to offer significant investment opportunities due to its vast size coupled with the government's commitment to expanding power capacity and the large prospective in the renewables and natural gas-fired thermal segments. However, the country's potential is hindered by its continued dependence on unreliable hydropower, weak infrastructure and regulatory interjections. In addition, Brazil's darkening macroeconomic trajectory has weighed heavily on our forec......

    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 44
    BMI View: The major players in Asian power supply are clamouring to invest in Cambodia, with the result that huge capacity expansion can be expected from around 2015, as hydro-, gas- and coal-based schemes are introduced. This should leave the country with plentiful spare generation. Neighbouring Vietnam, which will finance a number of power projects, plans to make good use of Cambodia's potential export capability, as does Thailand if a major coal-fired scheme comes to fruition. Hydropower expa......

    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 68
    BMI View: Chile will remain one of the most attractive power markets in Latin America over the next 10 years due to its strong electricity consumption growth, driven by the country's expanding manufacturing sector and energy intensive mining industry. A stable business environment and liberalised electricity sector will continue to support investment in new power capacity, strengthening our upbeat forecast for growth in electricity generation. While investment in large-scale hydropower projects ......

    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 89
    BMI View: This quarter we have extended our forecast to 2024. This notwithstanding, 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 three Nordic countries, as more regional instability could undermine their economic activity. In terms of sector trends, we note that Denmark appears to be losing its energy self-sufficient status; lower gas and oil p......
  • Pakistan Power Report Q2 2015

    BMI View: The adoption of net metering in Pakistan will not only drive the expansion of the country's domestic solar industry, but also help to alleviate the domestic power shortfall. Solar is set to play an increasingly important role in the country's power mix over the coming decade as it presents a viable alternative to conventional fuels. In a bid to improve energy security, the government is keen to incorporate renewable energy (primarily solar and wind) into the power mix and has taken ste......

    BMI View: This quarter we have extended our forecast to 2024. This notwithstanding, we maintain our view that Turkey's position in the region as a key power market over the coming decade will get increasingly more important, accounting for nearly one-fifth of the CEE's total capacity by 2024. We expect power demand in Turkey to be robust over the coming decade, given the high levels of investment being channelled into its power sector, the country's capacity expansion plans and its improving eco......
  • United Kingdom Power Report Q2 2015
    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 96
    BMI View: An unpredictable shift to a multi-party political system following the 2015 general election will cloud UK energy policy and risks undermining investment in much-needed new power capacity. The successful completion of the UK's first capacity auction creates some upside to our forecasts over the long term, but fears of a capacity crunch will persist until this comes into effect in 2018/2019. Political interference in the UK's power market remains one of the biggest threats to the outloo......
  • Norway Power Report Q2 2015
    Published: 18-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 56
    BMI View: Norway is a very mature market, and BMI therefore does not expect to see much growth in consumption, generation or new capacity over our forecast period to 2024. Hydropower and wind generation, especially offshore, are set to grow the most, as Norway replaces its aging hydropower capacity. A number of large-scale hydro and wind power projects are currently in development and the government recently increased equity in Norway's largest utility Statkraft, which will grow the company's bo......

    BMI View: There is little to like about the Russian utilities market and weak electricity demand, a severe economic contraction and tightening credit conditions will weigh on domestic and foreign power companies over 2015. Ratings downgrades and aggressive monetary tightening will heighten financing costs for domestic players, while foreign companies will repatriate profits rather than invest capital. The outlook for domestic and foreign utilities operating in the Russian power market is bleak a......
