Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/18/2015 -- The sizeable rewards on offer in India's rapidly expanding renewables industry have attracted significant investor interest and strengthened the renewables project pipeline, particularly in the solar segment. Risks remain pertinent and widespread - including land acquisition issues, financing availability, bottlenecks in the T&D network and a challenging business environment - but government efforts to mitigate these risks are beginning to bear fruit, albeit slowly.

India has rapidly emerged as a key investment destination for renewable energy developers, resulting in a strengthening renewables project pipeline and surging installation rates across the country. Although China is the clear renewables outperformer in Asia, given the sheer size of the industry, India will firmly remain in second spot over the coming decade, with non-hydro renewables capacity totalling just over 78GW by 2024.

Germany's non-hydropower renewables market continues to grow steadily in 2015. While EEG reforms of 2014 have led to some cost reductions, it threatens to also result in lower-than-expected growth in the near future - with a tightening of the subsidies on offer and the introduction capacity caps curbing growth potential. We therefore expect the offshore wind pickup registered over H115 to tail off over the next five years. We maintain a stable growth outlook for the broader renewables sector over our forecast period, with onshore wind and solar power to remain the outperforming segments.

German's renewables expansion has been undeniably successful in terms of capacity growth in the past and the contribution renewables generation makes to the country's electricity mix. Focusing primarily on wind and solar power, the country has firmly established itself as the European bellwether for green energy. The government has established a target for electricity generation from renewable sources, aiming to expand renewables so that they contribute 35% to total electricity generation in the country by 2020, and 80% by 2050. The country was able to produce 27.3% of its electricity from renewable energy sources in 2014, up from 25% in 2013. At the same time, following two years of increasing carbon emissions, CO2 levels fell again in 2014, decreasing by 27% compared to 1990 levels. Moreover, in 2014 the wholesale price for power dropped to a record low of EUR33 per megawatt hour (MWh) from EUR38 in 2013, which enabled Germany to export more power than ever before.

This quarter our view on the Czech power market remains largely unvaried. We continue to see limited opportunities in the Czech renewables sector at present, as concerns over the country's economic competiveness and previous difficulties with setting renewables subsidies at a sustainable level, has led the government to scale back, and almost abandon, its pursuit of renewable energy. With cheaper fuel sources taking priority, we maintain our reserved outlook for the industry, expecting non-hydro renewable generation to account for roughly 9% of total electricity generation by 2024.

The country aims to develop renewables to account for at least 15-16% of total energy consumption by 2030; a target that we consider unachievable at present. Although Czech Republic has made an impressive start in adopting renewable sources into its electricity mix, we believe that high levels of regulatory uncertainty in the industry and the government's apparent preference for thermal power sources will result in a much less robust expansion than in previous years. As such, we forecast renewables capacity to expand moderately over our 10-year forecast period to 2024, registering an average annual growth rate of 2.8% between 2015 and 2024. Non-hydro renewables generation will expand at a similarly slow rate, at 2.2% over the same time period.

While growth is expected to remain sluggish in 2015, with only a slow uptick forecast for 2016, our outlook for the Dutch renewable energy market in the medium term continues to improve. Particularly wind power is expected to see an increased development following the new offshore wind power bill. As doubts continue over the country's ability to reach its 2020 targets, the prime minister also held out the prospect of an increased SDE+ budget for 2016.

The lowering of renewable energy targets by the Dutch government from an initial 20% of the country's total energy mix by 2020 to 14% paired with reduced FiT payments in 2010 had brought fears over the government's commitment to the country's energy transition. Governmental incentives remain strong, however, planning to reach the 16% target by 2023. Although the SDE+ subsidy programme continued in 2015 with a budget of EUR3.5bn, reports suggest at the current pace less than 11% of the country's energy mix will come from renewable energies by 2020. A new offshore wind power bill may raise this number slightly, however, we expect the country to be unable to meet its 2020 obligations.
