The great European energy transition continued in 2017 and, across the continent as a whole, shows little sign of slowing up in 2018. Ever lower levels of subsidy and guaranteed power prices awarded after fiercely competitive tenders have not deterred developers or financiers, who still see opportunities even in the more mature renewables markets.
As ever, uncertainties remain. What will be the final shape of the EU’s post-2020 legislative framework for renewable energy and the power sector? Will EU or national rule changes help unlock markets for corporate PPAs, where Europe still lags behind the US, or accelerate the rollout of EVs and other forms of energy storage? In the longer term, will it be renewable electricity or other technologies that decarbonize Europe’s heat and transport sectors?
