BMI View: Limited power sector reform, a history of underinvestment in power generation facilities and

feedstock/water shortages will mean that many of the countries in the region will continue to face power

supply shortfalls. Coal is the dominant source of power generation in the SSA - largely due to South Africa's

well established coal mining and power generation sector. Cross-regional power sector expansion efforts

tend to be centred on boosting hydropower, which represents a relatively cheap and available - albeit

volatile - source of power.

- The SSA region has severe limitations in the power sector, due to a history of underinvestment, which

translates into widespread generation shortfalls amid rampant population growth.

- The inability of SSA governments to ensure that electricity tariffs reflect the cost of maintenance and

investment will remain a pertinent hurdle to improving the region's power sector. Barriers to

liberalisation will remain substantial, due to vested interests in state-owned utilities, which have

culminated in tariffs being set low in order to appease populations with limited spending power. This has

in turn weighed on private investment.

- Côte d'Ivoire maintains its leading position in the SSA Power RRI this quarter; whereas, Zimbabwe

continues to trail the pack. Numerous markets have suffered from a deterioration of scores, notably

Kenya, Nigeria and Angola - as project delays, feedstock issues and lower oil prices cloud the outlook.

The precarious power supply situation in South Africa and Ghana has eased for the time-being, boosting

their respective scores marginally

- In the face of reduced off-take from traditional buyers, power demand growth in SSA holds potential as a

niche LNG export destination. We identify Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana and South Africa as the markets with the

highest potential. Government support through pricing and offtake agreements is crucial for long-term

gas import growth.

- The SSA will maintain its overreliance on hydropower generation over the next decade, as weak

consumer spending power, and opposition to power tariff hikes, will centre power sector expansion

efforts on relatively cheap hydropower generation. Hydrological fluctuations will therefore continue to

threaten energy security in the region, which will weigh on investor confidence in energy intensive

  • Pakistan Power Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 60
    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 significa......
  • Thailand Power Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    BMI View: Thailand's plan to reduce its reliance on gas-fired power generation will create opportunities for alternatives such as coal and renewables. However, we highlight that a weak consumption outlook in the coming years could limit infrastructure construction as projects are delayed until demand picks up. Accordingly, we maintain our modest forecast for Thailand's power generation to grow by 3.1% in 2017 and 2.9% in 2018. Latest Updates And Structural Trends......

  • Botswana Power Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: Botswana's electricity consumption will continue to outweigh electricity generation over our forecast period to 2025 despite forecast increases in thermal power capacity. Water shortages and problems at existing power plants will contribute to electricity supply problems. Plans to liberalise the power sector through the Energy Regulatory Bill will attract more private investment, which will lead to increased power capacity and improve the efficiency of the elect......
  • Cote d`Ivoire Power Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    BMI View: Côte d'Ivoire's power generation will grow at an annual average of 6.6% from 2017 to 2025 on the back of government efforts to increase power capacity to keep pace with rising demand. Gas-fired generation will be the dominant source of power generation, bolstered by plans to increase LNG import capacity through the construction of an FSRU. ? Construction on the 370 megawatt (MW) gas-fired Songon power plant has commenced. After announcements regarding the ......

    BMI View: Ghana's power sector will continue to be reliant on electricity imports from neighbouring countries such as Côte d'Ivoire as erratic gas feedstock leads to underperforming thermal power plants. Hydropower generation growth will remain subdued as less capacity is utilised in order to conserve water at the reservoirs. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? Governmental approval has been given for a 400 megawatt (MW) liquid petroleum gas-fired power plant.......

  • Colombia Power Report Q1 2017
    Published: 16-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 59
    BMI View: Colombia's short-term electricity supply is back to viability following the end of a nationwide drought brought on by El Niño that had slowed the rivers that power the nation's grid. With hydropower currently accounting for 70% of the country total generation, we believe the country will need considerable investments to diversify its energy supply in the long-term to meet the increasing demand for power and the effects of climate change. The process is likely, h......
  • Malaysia Power Report Q1 2017
    Published: 16-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 59
    BMI View: The Malaysian power sector is set to grow by 6.0% in 2017, following an estimated expansion of 6.1% in 2016 and 5.3% in 2015. Growth in 2017 will be powered by the completion of major thermal and coal projects. Latest Updates And Structural Trends ? Natural gas will remain the dominant fuel in Malaysia's power sector over the coming decade, but the share of coal in the power mix will increase - as the coal-fired power project pipeline strengthens in line......
