As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the world, our analysts are constantly tracking the impact of this rapidly evolving situation on the markets and the consumer purchase behaviours. Thus, our latest estimates and analysis about the current market trends and forecast will exhaustively reflect the effects of this emerging pandemic.
The global renewable energy market reached an installation capacity of nearly 2455 gigawatts in 2019. The global market is likely to be aided by the Africa renewable energy market, which is one of the fastest-growing markets in the industry. The Africa renewable energy market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6% in the forecast period of 2020-2025.
Africa is expected to have faster and higher growth of photovoltaics in the coming years as it is the production hub for the photovoltaic modules. The leading countries in terms of the largest installed capacity are South Africa, Ethiopia, Morocco, and Egypt. In 2018, the capacity addition in the region grew by more than 15%. The African region is led by South Africa as the country with the largest capacity installed for hydropower, solar, and wind energy.
Hydropower accounts for the largest share in terms of contribution, accounting for 68% of the regional market. Hydropower is the leading type of energy in the region since most of the countries have efficient hydro energy plants installed for the same, leading to a high growth potential of the resource. The region also enjoys abundant sunlight, which results in increased solar power. The solar power generation can go up to 1100 gigawatts in the region. The investments made for solar energy are higher than those made on hydropower, despite the potential of the latter. The solar capacity in the region witnessed a growth of more than 50% in the recent years. The potential for wind energy is also being explored in the region with large scale wind plants being constructed in Kenya, South Africa, and Morocco. Africa also has good potential for bioenergy owing to the readily available feedstock.
Kenya, a major country within the region, is the only country to adopt geothermal generation due to its geographical location, which provides favourable conditions to develop geothermal energy. Ethiopia is also a major country for the renewable energy market due to its surplus resources. The country has the potential to produce nearly 60,000 megawatts of energy from wind, solar, geothermal, and hydroelectric sources. The market in Ethiopia is likely to increase at a CAGR of almost 20% in the forecast period of 2020-2025. Hydropower accounts for almost 80% of the total renewable energy technology in the country.
Properties and Applications
Renewable energy is the energy that is generated from sustainable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human scale, like sunlight, wind, tides, rain, waves, and geothermal heat. It helps to provide energy in four key areas: electricity production, water, air heating or cooling, transport, and rural (off-grid) energy services.
On the basis of types, the industry can be divided into:
Based on the fuel source, the regional markets can be segmented into the following:
The EMR report also covers regional markets like South Africa, Egypt, Ethiopia, and Kenya, among others.
The Africa renewable energy market is being driven by the social as well as economic development in the region. The economy of the region is rising with the ongoing developments, which is providing further impetus to the industry growth. The region had low penetration of electricity, and with the help of alternative power sources, the region can overcome these problems. Africa has a high availability of resources, especially hydropower and solar energy. The region also has a lot of potential sources for the generation of power from alternative and sustainable sources. The exploration of these new resources also owes to the increased awareness among the population to find long-term solutions to save energy as well as minimise environmental damage to the environment.
Within the African region, biomass is explicitly used in both domestic as well as the public sphere, driving the demand further. Nigeria accounts for more than 95% of the biomass demand to meet the household demands. The growing need for electricity in the region is also providing further impetus to the industry growth.
