Emerging Markets Take Over Renewable Energy Landscape

Opportunities for renewables in developing markets are now eclipsing those in the sector's traditional strongholds.

 

In the US and Europe, the renewable energy industry has seen unprecedented growth in recent years, but policy uncertainty and budgetary constraints have created headwinds in both regions. At the same time, many developing countries are putting in place policies to encourage investment in the sector. In 2010, for the first time, investment in renewable energy in developing countries (US$72 billion) exceeded that in the developed world ($70 billion). Will this trend continue? What risks and opportunities can investors expect as they enter emerging markets?

US and Europe Outlook 

Various incentives have driven growth in the US renewable energy industry in recent years, particularly the Treasury cash grant programme, investment and production tax credits, and the Department of Energy Loan Guarantee Program. However, the 1603 cash grant programme required applicants to meet certain benchmarks by the end of 2011, the Production Tax Credit (PTC) is set to expire at the end of 2012, and the loan guarantee programme essentially finished in September 2011. Hopes for a national renewable energy standard and broader climate policy have lost momentum amidst economic and budgetary woes. Similarly, lobbyists have failed to convince lawmakers to include cash grant or PTC extensions in the payroll tax deal forged at the end of 2011 or the subsequent payroll tax extension approved in February 2012. The momentum behind US renewables has slowed, with the wind industry feeling the greatest strain.

Meanwhile, Europe is having its own problems. The debt crises have placed huge budgetary constraints on European governments and some governments are looking to renewable energy incentives for cuts. Germany has made several cuts to its subsidy programmes. Spain attempted to make retroactive cuts to certain feed-in tariffs (FiTs) and further subsidy cuts were announced in January 2012, with Spain's Prime Minister announcing in July that it would levy a new tax on the renewable energy sector. Italy and the UK announced cuts in subsidies during 2011. The sovereign debt crisis may also temper investment in the Eurozone.
