COVID-19 Impact on Renewable Energy Market

COVID-19 Impact on Renewable Energy Market by Technology (Wind and Solar), End-User (Utilities, Captive (Industrial, Commercial and Residential) and Region - Global Forecast to 2021

Report Code: EP 7615 Apr, 2020, by marketsandmarkets.com

[51 Pages Report] The global renewable energy market size is projected to grow from USD 184.3 billion in 2020 to USD 226.1 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 22.7% in the realistic scenario during the forecast period. The IEA estimates the global oil demand at 99.9 million barrels a day in 2020, down around 90,000 barrels a day from the demand in 2019. As renewable energy is the best and environment-friendly alternative to oil, the demand for renewable energy and related projects is likely to increase in the near future. This market will be less impacted during the COVID-19 period.

COVID-19 Impact on Renewable Energy Market

The solar segment is estimated to account for the largest share in 2020, followed by the wind segment in the renewable energy market

The solar segment is estimated to be the largest renewable energy market, followed by the wind segment. The adoption of new solar technologies such as floating solar farms and Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) solar technology is likely to increase during the forecast period (from 2019 to 2021). The installation cost of floating solar farms is lesser than that of traditional land-based solar panels as there is no need to clear land or treat the soil.

In the wind segment, wind energy producers are likely to shift toward producing energy through their offshore wind farms during the forecast period. Offshore wind farms attract higher O&M costs in comparison to onshore wind farms due to higher turbine maintenance costs, higher logistics costs, and a lack of a skilled workforce.

The residential subsegment in the captive end-user segment is projected to be the largest during the forecast period

The residential subsegment in the captive end-user segment is the largest market as compared to industrial and commercial subsegmentS. The majority of the companies have given work from home facility to their employees; however, these companies have to keep their office PCs in the working mode so that the employees can get remote access. Also, many countries such as Germany, India, Australia, the US, China, Spain, France, Russia, and Italy have imposed strict lockdown and asked the citizens to quarantine themselves, which is further expected to increase the demand from the residential subsegment during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact on Renewable Energy Market

Asia Pacific is projected to account for the largest share in the renewable energy industry during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest market during the forecast period. The region has a high demand for electricity due to a rise in urbanization, rapid industrialization, and population growth. According to the latest report of IRENA, the region had a total solar installed capacity of 52,144 MW in 2019, which has decreased by 25% from the previous year. Also, as per the OECD report on the global COVID-19 pandemic, the electric power industry in China has witnessed a 3.67% deviation from the benchmark set in 2019. In the coming weeks, the majority of Chinese renewable energy producers are resuming their operations. The demand during the forecast period is expected to be high as these companies have to reach their clean energy targets in the second half of 2020.

Key Market Players

Key players in the global renewable energy market include Siemens Gamesa (Spain), Goldwind (China), General Electric (US), Orsted (Denmark), Canadian Solar (Canada), Jinko Solar (China), Vestas (Denmark), and SolarEdge (Israel). These players have broad industry coverage and high operational and financial strength.

Vestas was founded in 1945 and is headquartered in Arhus, Denmark. The company, through its wind turbines and wind power plants business segment, manufactures wind turbines and rotor blades. It has a presence in major geographical markets through its subsidiaries. The company employs a large workforce, with more than 15,000 employees globally. Major subsidiaries of the company include Vestas - Celtic Wind Technology Ltd, Vestas Blades Deutschland GmbH (Germany), Vestas Blades Italia S.r.l. (Italy), Vestas Wind Technology Co. Ltd. (China), and Vestas Blades America Inc. (US). The company competes with Sinoi (Germany), Acciona (Spain), Enercon GmbH (Germany), Suzlon Energy Ltd. (India), and Gamesa (Spain). Vestas has reduced production to a minimum in its Spanish factories. At its blade factory in Daimiel, minimum production of blade root continues as this is an essential segment to its global supply chain, and a complete shutdown would create a disproportional disruption. The generator factory in Viveiro is closed except for some minimal logistic services.

The generator factory in Viveiro is closed except for some minimal logistic services.
  • March 2020: Despite the country’s painful struggle with the COVID-19 outbreak, the Italian solar market is sending some encouraging signs. Italian lender Intesa San Paolo has awarded USD 60 million credit facility to Canadian Solar for a portfolio of 12 unsubsidized solar projects.
  • March 2020: Siemens Gamesa has taken action to maintain high levels of activity across the business—manufacturing, installing, and servicing wind turbines—without compromising health and safety. A sophisticated supply chain supports the wind energy industry, and the company is working hard to mitigate risk and maintain continuity. Also, its installation and service teams are dealing with complicated international logistics and are monitoring all border and travel restrictions to ensure safe travel.
