A clean Covid-19 recovery for the UK

The UK has gained momentum towards decarbonisation, becoming a global leader in offshore wind generation – but more work remains to be done to achieve its ambitious net zero and energy transition targets. Contracts for difference (CfDs) have been the key policy enabler behind rapid deployment of renewables capacity – the UK had 10.5GW of offshore wind in operation at the end of 2020, the highest of any country globally.

Photovoltaics Report by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems

Photovoltaics is a fast-growing market: The Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of cumulative PV installations including off-grid was 34% between year 2010 to 2020. In year 2020 producers from Asia count for 95% of total c-Si PV module production. China (mainland) holds the lead with a share of 67%. Europe contributed with a share of 3%; USA/CAN with 2%. In 2020, Europe’s contribution to the total cumulative PV installations amounted to 22% (compared to 24% in 2019). In contrast, installations in China accounted for 33% (same value as the year before).

MENA Energy Investment Outlook 2021-25

After the 2020 recession, the MENA region is expected to witness a delicate rebound in 2021, driven in most countries by commodity prices and exports. After a regionwide average of 3.4% contraction in 2020 – excluding Egypt’s notable 3.6% GDP growth – the region’s economic growth is estimated to rise to 4% in 2021 and 3.7% in 2022.

APAC Energy Transition: Renewables Rise, But Coal Still Thrives

According to S&P Global Ratings latest analysis, high dependence on fossil fuels (above 60% of the generation mix) and growing demand will keep coal relevant in Asia Pacific markets such as China and India for the next one to three decades. China may underpromise and over-deliver on renewables targets; India may over-promise and under-deliver. Further, renewables will continue to increase their share rising to over 40% of generation mix by 2040. 2030 seems to be the key inflection point, when most markets will stop adding new coal plants.

Risk reduction & decision support for financial investments in solar PV projects

Solar PV contribution to Africa’s national energy mix will increase. But large PV plants often underperform relative to predicted electricity generation and under performance has a significant impact on financial returns. Not all modules/systems perform well over time. Given that the PV industry is relatively new in South Africa, and focus on quality is lagging compared to more developed markets, how can we contribute to long term reliability of PV plants to ensure security of supply and reduce the investment risk?
