Austria Renewables Report

BMI View : We are maintaining our forecasts for non-hydropower renewable energy generation in Austria, as our key assumptions remain relevant. T he renewable energy sector is set to experience greater political risks over the near term as political parties that have a greater focus on fiscal austerity gained ground in the September 2013 elections. The wind energy sector could be subject to new regulations on zoning, which poses a risk to our long-term forecasts.

  • In September 2012 the government terminated the feed-in tariff (FiT) for new building integrated photovoltaics plants with capacities over 500 kilowatts, introduced a digression mechanic for FiTs, and made a general reduction in the FiT for solar energy.

  • The government has decided to halt imports of nuclear power by the end of 2014 and will need to seek other generation sources to fill the gap. Austria currently imports just over 3% of its electricity needs, and growth of 4.7% a year in electricity generation should be sufficient to fulfil its ambition.

  • The government revised the FiTs and the eligibility of solar projects for FiTs in December 2013.

The Austria Renewables Report researched at source contains Business Monitor International (BMI)'s assessment of the current renewables market in Austria. The report also contains historical data together with forecasts to end-2017 covering electricity generation (TWh) and electricity capacity (MW).

The renewables sectors covered in the report include Wind, Solar, Geothermal, Tidal and Wave, and Biomass (See Table of Contents for exact coverage). The report also features details on government green energy agendas and funding opportunities, as well as presenting a detailed list of key renewables projects currently being planned or undertaken in Austria, their capacity, the timeframe of construction and their current status.

The report discusses the various energy policies currently in force, including targets, subsidies and the relevant infrastructure developments or limitations which might impact on renewables growth, analysing the potential effects of regulatory changes in conjunction with the background macroeconomic outlook. Finally, there is a general overview of the competitive landscape in Austria, together with a detailed summary of the main utilities and manufacturers present and their business operations.

BMI's Austria Renewables Report provides industry professionals and strategists, sector analysts, investors, trade associations and regulatory bodies with unique independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on the Austria renewables industry.

Coverage

BMI Industry View

Summary of BMI's key industry forecasts, views and trend analysis covering the renewables market in Austria, regulatory changes, major investments and projects and significant multinational and national company developments.

Industry SWOT Analysis

Analysis of the major Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats within the renewables sector and within the broader political, economic and business environment.

BMI Industry Forecasts

Historic data series (2010-2012) and forecasts to end-2017 for electricity generation (TWh) and electricity generating capacity (MW) for each individual renewables sector present in the country.

These in turn are broken down into:

Electricity Generation: Overall capacity (TWh), growth % change year-on-year, KWh per capita, % of Total Non-Hydropower renewables generation, % of total electricity generation.

Electricity Capacity: Overall capacity (MW), growth % change year-on-year, % of non-hydroelectric renewables capacity and % of total capacity.

These forecasts are in turn supported by explicit assumptions, in conjunction with analysis of the key risks to the main forecast.

Business Environment Ratings

BMI's Renewables Business Environment Ratings provide fully comparable Risk-Reward Ratings aimed at investors in the regional renewables market.

The ratings methodology makes sophisticated use of various industry, economic and demographic data point.
