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

  • China Power Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 77
    BMI View: This quarter our forecasts remain virtually unchanged. China's power continues to be affected negatively by the ongoing economic slowdown in the country and the government's continued efforts to tackle coal consumption. The government's centralised coal reduction efforts, coupled with the increased adoption of renewable energy - and also 'cleaner' fuels such as nuclear power - will lessen coal's dominance of the power mix over the coming decade. We expect coal-f......
  • Israel Power Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: Israel is overwhelmingly dependent on the thermal sector, a situation which is unlikely to alter significantly during our forecast period, with its contribution to overall generation set to abate from 98.5% in 2016 to 92.8% in 2025, while rising in absolute terms. During the course of the next 10 years, gas will become a more important generator of thermal power than coal, while there will be a moderate improvement in the contribution of non-hydropower renewable......
  • Kuwait Power Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 50
    BMI View: Kuwait will register limited power generation capacity growth over the next decade, with the exception of the Al-Zour gas power facility, as a poor track-record in executing big-ticket infrastructure projects coupled with a limited project pipeline will weigh on sector expansion plans. We note that ambitious government plans to develop a non-hydro renewables sector provide an upside risk to our forecast. Latest Updates And Structural Trends - Kuwait'......
  • Namibia Power Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 62
    BMI View: Non-hydropower renewable energy will be Namibia's most lucrative investment due to lower costs and ease of deployment to rural communities. Meanwhile thermal and hydropower development will remain mostly stagnant up until 2025 due to political indecision, pricing and logistical issues. Namibia will remain a net-exporter of electricity over our 10-year forecast period. Latest Updates And Structural Trends - The Namibian High Court ruled in favour of Xaris E......
  • New Zealand Power Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 51
    BMI View: New Zealand's power market is very well developed. Hydropower plants account for more than half of installed capacity and the country also makes extensive use of wind, geothermal and solar power. Thermal power is declining in importance as New Zealand phases out ageing coal-fired power plants and instead focuses new investment on the renewables sector. While New Zealand's renewable energy targets mean we do expect to see some growth in the sector over the coming......
  • Saudi Arabia Power Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 63
    BMI View: Low oil prices will constrain the Saudi government's spending, hampering efforts to diversify the power sector away from heavy reliance on oil-fired power generation over our 10-year forecast period. Attempts to increase non-hydropower renewable capacity will be muted due to fiscal pressures and stringent local content requirements, while we believe the government will focus on the well-developed thermal power sector instead. Latest Trends And Developments......
  • South Africa Power Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 75
    BMI View: Thermal power generation will continue to account for over 85.0% of total power output in South Africa over our 10-year forecast period due to the addition of just under 10GW of new coal-fired capacity. The highest growth in new capacity additions will come from non-hydropower renewables, forecast to grow at an annual average of 12.5%. New capacity coming online and the full commercial operation of the Ingula pumped-storage plant pending means the risk of load s......
  • Spain Power Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: Investment into new capacity for the Spanish power sector will be muted over our 10-year forecast period due to the lack of policy direction, as no government has been formed yet after two elections. Increases in thermal power generation will come from mothballed gas-fired capacity coming back online, while coal power will decline due to stringent EU emissions targets and a declining coalmining sector. Latest Updates And Structural Trends - Due to in......
  • Sudan and South Sudan Power Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 52
    BMI View: The Sudanese power sector will continue to be dominated by hydropower generation over our 10-year forecast period due to investment focus on constructing hydropower capacity on the Nile. High hydropower focus means Sudan will remain vulnerable to power cuts as a result of droughts, while lack of new capacity means power generation growth will stagnate after 2017. Political instability in South Sudan will weigh on investor sentiment. Latest Updates And Stru......
