New Energy research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/06/2014 -- This quarter our fundamental assumptions for Turkey remain virtually unchanged. . Ove rall, we maintain our view that Turkey set to emerge as a key power market over the coming decade, accounting for nearly one- fifth of t he CEE's total capacity by 2023 , T he power sector continues to attract interest from a host of international companies as the country moves to position itself as an energy hub in the south-east Mediterranean. T here is also considerable political backing for power sector expansion as the government continues to strive for greater energy security and to lessen its reliance on its import-heavy thermal electricity generation mix, which has already played a fundamental role in deepening Turkey's current account deficit.

Yet, while the outlook is bright, the development of Turkey's power sector is complicated by the county's precarious economic and political position. With a slowdown of GDP on the cards expected in the coming quarters, we note a large and widening current account deficit (in part due to the import of fuel for power generation), high inflation and elevated political risk have taken a toll on investor confidence and encouraged caution towards holding lira-denominated debt at a time when demand for emerging market assets is waning, as yields in developed states look set to improve. As such, we do not believe the worst of the financial market adjustment is yet over and expect the CBRT will be forced to tighten further during 2014. This will curb fixed investment, credit growth and private consumption, which are the main drivers of economic growth in Turkey. In turn, any subsequent fall in demand will have a deleterious impact on electricity consumption and generation - underscoring our conservative power sector forecasts for generation growth of 5.29% in 2014 - considerably lower than in the preceding years.
