Bloomberg New Energy Finance supports its clients as they navigate the renewable energy industry sectors, offering expertise on bioenergy, geothermal, hydro, marine, solar and wind. The world’s energy system is undergoing a profound transformation: from high-carbon, centralised and insecure to low-carbon, distributed and robust. This brings immense opportunity coupled with commensurate risk. In these fast-changing markets, we give our clients the information that they need in order to build their business and devise leadership positions by giving them insight into the key market drivers: policy measures, regulatory issues, technological developments, supply chains, industry economics and finance and investment trends.
Bloomberg New Energy Finance helps its clients to build their business across the biomass, waste-to-energy and biofuels sectors through our range of insight, data and news services.
The geothermal sector has extraordinary potential for growth, with online capacity and pipeline representing only a small fraction of the estimated global conventional resource base. This potential climbs even further if we take into account technological advances and unconventional production methods such as enhanced geothermal systems.
Traditionally the lowest-profile of the world’s clean energy sectors, small hydro (projects under 50MW) saw a lull in investment activity after the financial crisis. Recently there has been a wave of project announcement and acquisitions, suggesting that investors are again warming to the relatively low-risk appeal of small hydro. There are still ongoing obstacles to development, however.
Electricity from wave is estimated to cost seven times as much as coal-fired power, and electricity from tidal stream turbines five times as much. More investment in the marine energy sector will bring down the cost of generation, but investors remain in a cautious mood and many marine technology developers are cash-strapped.
Solar is renewable energy’s fastest-growing sector, but while the industry has enjoyed brisk sales and high pricing, there is still uncertainty. Bloomberg New Energy Finance has some of the world’s leading solar analysts.
Although the next few years will see a sustained recovery, growth will not be spread equally across markets and participants face growing competition and cost pressures. Bloomberg New Energy Finance supports companies as they build their business across the onshore and offshore wind energy industry through our range of insight, data and news services.
