BMI View

Confronted by a sustained increase in demand over the next decade, the UAE authorities at both federal and emirate levels will continue to prioritise generating capacity expansion programmes.

Though we question whether targets will be met with the anticipated speed, the government and its parastatal utilities are doing most things right and we expect the sector to keep pace with rising demand.

Additionally, a key facet of the country's power market looking forward will be its transition to a much wider range of fuel sources, spanning to traditional steam and gas turbines to carbon-light technologies such as renewables and nuclear.

While recently released historical data have prompted some revisions in our estimates and forecasts for power generation and consumption, we maintain our view that expansion is the name of the game in the UAE's electricity market. Although a shortage of global liquidity somehow muddied the outlook for the UAE, a sanguine macroeconomic outlook on the UAE economy heading into 2013 supports plans for hikes in generating capacity. With more than US$8bn expected to be invested in the period up to 2020, we thus anticipate that the market will remain highly attractive to regional and international developers, with several major players vying for contracts in the well-established thermal segment, as well as in the emerging renewables and nuclear ones:
