  • Sub-Saharan Africa Power Sector and Opportunities for Manufacturing Suppliers

    The electricity sector is growing rapidly in sub-Saharan Africa. A stable supply of electricity has been identified as a key factor for further economic development by many sub-Saharan African governments. With over 70 per cent of sub-Saharan Africa without access to electricity and the increasing industrialisation of the region, the growth potential for the sub-Saharan Africa electricity sector is huge. African governments are implementing institutional reforms in order to increase private investment.  Oil and gas resources, as well as high hydro and solar power potential, in the region has led to accelerated development of generation capacity.

    In such a dynamic and diverse environment, our report provides clear, detailed and comprehensive information on the opportunities and challenges in key areas of the electricity sector value chain for the region. This report will be indispensable to suppliers and investors looking to enter or further their presence in Africa. The report includes a Regional Analysis and detailed case studies of South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Mozambique and Tanzania.

  • Sub-Saharan Africa Oil and Gas and Opportunities for Manufacturing Suppliers

    Sub-Saharan Africa is becoming increasingly important for the global oil and gas sector. The region’s share in the global oil and gas reserve and production is now approximately 10 per cent, and there is significant potential for stakeholders in this industry.

    This report is a comprehensive study of the entire oil and gas industry in sub-Saharan Africa, examining the region as a whole before focusing on six countries (Nigeria, Angola, Ghana, Equatorial Guinea, Tanzania and Mozambique) for specific analyses. It examines the business environment, resources and infrastructure and laws and regulations in each country, before detailing the activities of oil and gas field operators and concessionaires, and the activities of international companies who supply the industry in each country.

    Future opportunities have been identified for manufacturing suppliers in each country, and the report concludes with an opportunity/risk analysis for companies interested in doing business in those countries.

    The report is an invaluable source of the most up to date information on the oil and gas industry for anyone interested in doing business in the region.

  • The Tidal and Wave Energy Outlook: Opportunities and Challenges

    Estimated global potential from marine energy is huge, with unexploited tidal and wave power generation capacities up to 1TW and 80TW’s respectively. In the UK it is estimated that marine energy could be worth as much as £6 billion and generate 20,000 jobs by 2035, with some forecasts suggesting the sector could be worth a staggering £76 billion by 2050.

    In this publication, London Research International (LRI) has identified specific tidal and wave energy technologies which are deemed to hold the most potential for utility scale energy production.Company case studies detail the competitive edge of each technology, as well as revealing the size of investment each developer is seeking. The report concludes by summarizing the commercial, investment and technological potential for marine energy in 2014. This report is an invaluable resource for developers and investors seeking to enter the marine energy sector.

  • Renewable Electricity Incentives in the OECD, China and India 2011/2012: Investment and Operating Support Programmes

    Renewable electricity is being deployed ever more rapidly as developed countries recognise both the urgent need to cut GHG emissions and the contribution that renewable energy can make towards energy security. However, the high cost of deployment is such that government incentives will continue to be required.  Incentive schemes have already been established in various countries to attract investor capital and spur development. A major challenge for renewable power developers now lies in identifying which of these incentive schemes offer good value for money and the predictability needed to justify the initial capital outlay.

    This report is an authoritative source allowing for quick and easy comparison of the latest incentives on offer for different renewable technologies in the OECD, China and India. Combining key electricity market statistics with an analysis of operating and investment incentives for each country, the report provides comprehensive and concise information regarding the climate for renewable electricity investment.

  • Renewable Electricity Incentives in Central and South America, 2011/2012: Investment and Operating Support Programme

    Renewable electricity is continually being deployed as both developed and developing countries acknowledge the urgent need to cut GHG emissions and the contribution that renewable energy can make towards energy security. However, the high cost of deployment is such that government incentives continue to be required.

    Incentive schemes have already been established in various countries to attract investor capital and spur development. A major challenge for renewable power developers lies in identifying which of these incentive schemes offer good value for money and the predictability needed to justify the initial capital outlay.

    This report is an authoritative source allowing for quick and easy comparison of the latest incentives on offer for different renewable technologies in 11 Central and South American countries. Combining key electricity market statistics with an analysis of operating and investment incentives for each country, the report provides concise but comprehensive information regarding the climate for renewable electricity investment.

  • The Asia-Pacific Renewable Electricity Sector: A Country Comparison of Risks and Opportunities

    The Asia-Pacific region is becoming increasingly important as a driver for world economic growth and as an investment destination. Renewable power is not yet viewed as the solution to rapidly rising energy demand by most governments in the region, however they are increasingly aware of the importance of reducing their dependence on energy imports and of participating in the international effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable energy also represents a low-cost solution to the problem of rural electrification. For these reasons, countries in the region have established legal frameworks to support renewable electricity deployment — both by improving incentives on offer, and by restructuring their power sectors.

    This report, similar to London Research International’s pioneering report on the Renewable Electricity Sector for 20 European countries, provides a detailed analysis of the renewable electricity sector of 11 key countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Involving a spectrum of geopolitical considerations and market factors, the analysis assigns numerical scores to each country in terms of both risks and opportunities involved in investing in renewable electricity development.

  • European Solar Power Sector Analysis: Vertical Integration and Progress towards Grid Parity

    Obtaining consumer grid parity and improving the cost competitiveness of large solar power plants are the most ambitious industry goals in the solar PV sector. Drawing on its extensive research and consulting experience in the field of European renewable electricity, LRI has developed a model which describes and analyses these goals and demonstrates how efficiency improvement and cost reduction are driving overall progress towards both.

    Through a measurement and the analysis of many factors contributing to the changes in solar PV system efficiencies, the value chain and the current state of government incentives, the relationship between numerous external and internal industry factors is clarified, and a more detailed picture is established of both the current state of the sector and its likely future.
