BMI View: Taiwan's power market has grappled with significant political turmoil over the last year, which

has implications for investment priorities and the future power mix. Despite USD9bn+ pledged (and largely

invested) in a fourth nuclear plant - and a successful safety exercise for its first unit in July 2015 - the entire

project was mothballed that year. A new government came to power in early 2016, with an avowedly antinuclear

and pro renewable manifesto, the radical nature of which already appears to have generated

friction with senior personnel at the state-run power utility. Partial nuclear dependence will decline across

our ten year forecast period, although the new government's pledge to eliminate this form of power entirely

looks too ambitious. While renewables will take up some of the slack, the fossil fuel dependent thermal

sector appears set to be the main driver of overall generation and capacity growth, rising from an estimated

80% of total generation in 2015 to over 90% by 2025.

GDP growth appears set to pick up sustainably from 2017, after several weak years. This should ensure that

budget revenues are available for investment in power infrastructure, which the new administration intends

to channel largely towards renewables. Refitted coal fired facilities should also come online over the next

few years, albeit with delays.

Taiwan sits just below mid-table in our regional rankings, taking 9th place, out of a total of 17 countries. It

sits one place below Japan and one place above the Philippines. A heavy import dependence, the dominance

of Taipower, anti-competitive pricing policies and an attendant lack of opportunities for private investors

prevent Taiwan from challenging countries ranked higher up in the table.

Key Trends And Developments

? There have been setbacks to the upgrade of coal facilities over the last year, with the schedules for

Linkou Unit 1, Linkou Unit 2 and Talin Unit 2 all suffering delays between November 2015 and early

2016.Indefinite suspension of the Lungmen nuclear facility, despite a successful safety test (July 2015).

The government mothballed the project that year and the resounding election victory for a stridently antinuclear

new administration in early 2016 means that the project is highly unlikely to be revived, unless

the country faces drastic shortages and/or there is a major shift in public opinion.

  • 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: CĂ´te 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 ......
  • Ghana Power Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 57
    BMI View: Ghana's power sector will continue to be reliant on electricity imports from neighbouring countries such as CĂ´te 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......
