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 the US – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in the US - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary Following weak growth in 2017, construction growth in the US accelerated in 2018, owed in part to corporate tax cuts and increased infrastructure investment by state and local governments. As a result, the country's construction industry grew by 2.2% in real terms in 2018, compared to 0.4% in 2017. However, growth is projected to decelerate this year to 0.5% in 2019, largely due to a decline in residential investment and heightened policy uncertainty from the recent escalation of the US trade war with China, which is weighing on business sentiment and holding back investment in major construction projects. On 1st August, President Donald Trump announced that he would impose a new 10% tariff on a further US$300 billio......

Global Construction Outlook to 2023 – Q3 2019 Update

Global Construction Outlook to 2023 - Q3 2019 Update Summary This report provides a detailed analysis of the prospects for the global construction industry up to 2023. GlobalData has revised downwards its forecast for global construction output growth in 2019 to 2.7%, which will be the slowest pace of growth in a decade. The deterioration in construction output growth across emerging markets has been worse than previously expected, particularly in the Middle East, while some major advanced economies have struggled to generate growth momentum, including the US, the UK and Australia. In China, where the authorities are stepping up investment in infrastructure to prevent a continued slowdown, growth will remain positive, contributing to a slight acceleration in growth in total output in t......

Construction in Switzerland – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in Switzerland - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary The Swiss construction industry expanded by 1.4% in real terms in 2018; this was preceded by annual growth of 1.3% in 2017, 1.6% in 2016 and 0.1% in 2015. Slow growth can be attributed to the sluggish economic expansion during the period of 2015-2017, coupled with low global commodity demand, although the government's investment in infrastructure, energy and institutional construction projects provided support to the construction industry to remain positive. The industry is expected to record marginal growth over the forecast period (2019-2023), supported by investment in commercial, institutional, residential and renewable energy projects. To reduce traffic congestion in the country, the government is focusing ......
