Power Industry Outlook, 2018″
report has been added to’s

The power industry outlook finds that $2.20 trillion will be invested in
generation capacity additions for the period 2017-2021 driven mainly by
renewable energies, solar and wind, accounting for $603.4 billion and
$553.7 billion, respectively.

Similar to 2017, the author expects solar energy to account for the
majority of the investment – $123.03 billion in 2018 – with China
expected to be the key contributor. The need and the investment climate
for solar and wind (offshore) are present and positive. We advise power
generation participants to consider this trend and also focus on plant
utilization trends before making investments.

In the case of wind, the transition to an auction-based system witnessed
bids reaching a low; we expect this trend to continue in 2018 as cost
optimization is garnering more focus than ever. We forecast hydropower
and biomass investment to remain stable at $77.06 billion and $23.30
billion, respectively, for 2018.
