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
3.2TWh.

    BMI View: Angola's power sector will double in total generation by 2018 as the Soyo combined cycle and Laúca hydropower plants are commissioned. Hydropower will remain the dominant source of generation, while thermal power investment will increase alongside an increase in gas feedstock. Continued investment into electricity distribution infrastructure will enable the government to increase electrification rates in the country. Latest Updates And Structural Trends......

    Published: 18-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 52
    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 deficit left by nuclear power. Construction of an interconnection line with the UK will help facilitate the necessary imports. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? We maintain our forecasts for nuclear po......
  • Czech Republic Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 18-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 56
    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 viability for renewable electricity underlines this forecast. By the end of 2025, we expect Czech Republic to become a net-importer of electricity. Latest Updates and Structural Trends ? We have fully include......

  • Netherlands Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 18-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 54
    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 increases will mostly be offset by ageing power plants being phased out. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? Dutch transmission system operator (TSO), TenneT, announced it will be investing EUR22bn in ......
  • Norway Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 18-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 60
    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 capacity, driving the growth of nonhydropower renewable electricity up until 2020. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? Helgeland Kraft AS received a USD56.4mn loan from the Nordic Investment Bank to fin......
  • Peru Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 18-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 65
    BMI View: Strong growth in electricity consumption, government tenders for power generation and transmissions projects, and robust investor interest in the market continue to support our positive outlook for the Peruvian power sector. The completion of the Southern Peruvian Pipeline - which is expected to provide feedstock to new gas-fired power plants - will be delayed as a result of the pull-out of its leading constructor Odebrecht, confirming our view that delays in pr......
  • Poland Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 18-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 69
    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 sector for power generation. This will put Poland at odds with the EU over emissions and environmental targets. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? We maintain our view that coal will dominate Polan......
  • Romania Power Report Q3 2016
    Published: 18-May-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    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 of the power mix, but gas will gain share as coal capacity is taken offline to comply with tightening EU emissions targets, and Romania boosts domestic gas production from the Black Sea towards the end of our ......
