Project Insight – Power Generation Construction Projects: Europe

Summary

Europe’s mature power generation market is set to decline in terms of consumption levels, in line with the power generation strategy for EU countries. The EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive and the Renewable Energy Directive set targets for energy efficiency (reductions in energy production) and for the share of energy needs delivered from renewable sources. According to the BP Statistical Review, energy consumption in Europe (including Russia) was 2,668 million tonnes oil equivalent (Mtoe) in 2017, with Russia, Germany and France leading with 698.3, 335.1 and 237.9 Mtoe respectively. Although this was an increase on the previous year, consumption levels are declining in Europe, in contrast to the positive growth in emerging markets.

The directives relative to renewables are reflected in the energy mix in the power generation construction projects pipeline. GlobalData is currently tracking power generation construction projects in Europe with a total value of US$693.2 billion, which includes projects from the announced to execution stages. Western Europe’s project pipeline totals US$380.2 billion, ahead of Eastern Europe with US$313.0 billion.

The report provides analysis based on CIC projects showing total project values for Europe and analysis by stage and funding for the top ten countries. The top 50 projects are listed for the region giving country, stage, value and type of power generation construction. Values by ten types of project power categories are given, including nuclear, wind, coal and biomass. Power generation capacity (MW) analysis is also provided. Ranked listings of the key operators for the sector are also provided showing the leading contractors, consulting engineers and project owners.

Scope

– For Europe as a whole, the project pipeline for wind power projects has the highest value, at US$269.6 billion, just ahead of nuclear power projects, with US$241.6 billion. Wind power is by far the most dominant type of power project in Western Europe, accounting for 61.4% of the total pipeline, ahead of nuclear with 14.1%.
– Assuming all projects proceed as planned, the current pipeline of projects will deliver 251.5GW of generating capacity, with 115.5GW in Eastern Europe and 136.0GW in Western Europe. For the region as a whole, wind power projects have a combined generating capacity of 91.2GW, of which 74.1GW is accounted for by Western Europe.
– The pipeline has a relatively high proportion of early stage projects, with projects at the planning stage having a total value of US$306.1 billion, and those at the earlier stages (of announcement and study) totaling US$78.5 billion.
– Funding for projects in the pipeline is predominantly private, with privately-funded projects accounting for 54% of the total, followed by public with 25%. Joint public and private investment is responsible for 21% of power generation project investment in Europe as a whole.
– The UK has the highest-value project pipeline for Europe, with US$238.4 billion, reflecting large-scale investments in new wind power generation projects.
– The highest value project in Europe is the US$37.5 billion Sinop Nuclear Power Plant in Turkey. However, the project has been long delayed, and there are rising concerns that the Japanese-French consortium comprising Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Areva will pull out of the project owing to rising costs.

Construction in New Zealand – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in New Zealand - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary The pace of expansion in New Zealand's construction industry slowed in 2017 and 2018, as investment growth was undermined by weak investor confidence as a result of a shortage of a skilled workforce, high wages and a lower profit margin. The industry's growth will pick up pace in 2019, in part supported by government plans to boost infrastructure spending. In real terms, New Zealand's construction industry's output grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.85% during the review period (2014-2018). Although output growth slowed in 2017 and 2018, the general upward trend can be attributed to public and private sector investment in residential and transport infrastructure projects. Under the National Land Tr......

Construction in South Korea – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in South Korea - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary South Korea's construction industry suffered a downturn in 2018, contracting by 4.2% in real terms that year, following an average annual growth of 5.9% during the preceding four years. This decline can be attributed to a reduction in the government spending on infrastructure, a fall in the country's total exports and a decline in the total construction permits issued. The country's construction industry is expected to contract further in real terms - by 5% in 2019 and 1.7% in 2020 - before regaining growth momentum. This decline can be attributed to reduced infrastructure spending, an increase in minimum wages, tighter housing regulations and government policies. Over the remaining part of the forecast period (2......

Construction in Australia – Key Trends and Opportunities by State and Territory to 2023

Construction in Australia - Key Trends and Opportunities by State and Territory to 2023 Summary The overall Australian construction industry is facing a troubled period ahead, with 2019 set to be another year of decline in total output, following the negative outturn in 2018. Although this partly reflects a lull in activity in construction on major energy projects, of greater concern is the weakness in the residential sector. However, infrastructure investment is set to strengthen, which will contribute to growth momentum over the forecast period. The election victory for the Liberal-National coalition government in the May 2019 elections ensures continuity across a range of major infrastructure development programs and projects. The industry's output value declined by 3.7% in real ter......
