AMA Research has published the 1st edition of the report “Utilities Renewables Market - UK 2010-2014” which examines the role of renewable energy generation within the utilities sector, investigating recent trends and potential for future development within this growing market.

Construction output for the utilities market in Great Britain reached £3.65bn in 2009 down 4% on 2008. The utilities market continues to benefit from longer-term investment plans from key sectors such as water which tend to have a smoothing effect on the output curve and lessen the impact of more variable sectors such as electricity.

The renewables market has experienced significant growth in recent years with power generation output having increased by 53% 2004-08 but still representing under 6% of total UK generation output. Impetus for output generation growth has been provided by increased capacities in the wind and biomass sectors whilst the more mature hydroelectric sector has experienced more moderate generation output increases.

Key issues of particular interest:
  • Growth of renewables sector and influence of legislation.
  • Performance 2004-09 and forecasts for 2010 to 2014, key influencing factors, effects of capital investment programmes.
  • Impact of recent energy legislation and European Directives on overall market growth and its effect on electricity generation in particular.
  • Leading companies and contractors working in the utilities and renewables sectors.
Key sectors covered include:
UTILITIES MARKET - overview of construction output GB, quarterly analysis of output & new orders output by sector, forecasts.
RENEWABLES MARKET - overview of market development, analysis by sector.

Leading companies mentioned in the report include:
AMEC, Beaufort Wind, Carillion, Centrica, E.ON UK, EDF Energy, Eneco, Fenland Wind Farms, Fred Olsen Renewables, Galliford Try, Magnox Electric, Marine Current Turbines, McNicholas Construction, Moray Offshore Renewables, Morrison Utilities, Pelamis Wave Power, RES-Group, RWE Npower, Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE), Scottish Power, Vattenfall AB.

Additional Information

By value, ABI data indicates that the market for the collection and disposal of controlled waste was valued at around £7.4 billion in 2008. With reports indicating static market conditions in 2009.

Strong growth rates between 2004 and 2007 were largely due to the impact of EU Directives - and the UK legislation implementing them - aimed at reducing the volumes of waste being landfilled and increasing the levels of material recovery through recycling, composting and energy-from-waste.

This has created new opportunities in the municipal sector through the expansion and extension of existing waste collection contracts with local authorities and the development of long-term integrated waste management (IWM) contracts that are mainly being procured through PFI/PPP. However, the downturn in the UK economy has resulted in lower levels of growth across all sub-sectors of the waste management and recycling industry.

For 2010 it is anticipated that growth in the controlled waste management industry will remain relatively flat in real terms or may show marginal growth. Over the medium-longer term, however, the pressing need for the UK to significantly improve its recycling and composting rates and to develop its waste treatment and recycling infrastructure means that there will opportunities for substantial growth in the market.

From 2011 through to 2014, we would expect to see an increase in market values, underpinned by the EU Landfill Directive target for 2013 which will necessitate an increase in waste recovery rates and a major increase in investment in the infrastructure needed to deliver this. After 2013, the rate of growth might slow down before accelerating once more to meet official 2020 targets.

There will continue to be a marked convergence in the waste management and the renewable energy sectors as the uptake of not only AD and gasification plants increase but also energy-from-waste-incineration. Currently there are 22 MSW incineration with EfW plants operational but there are many more in the development pipeline.

Over the next 10 years, we expect there to be substantial growth in the waste management sector underpinned by the urgent need to divert increasing annual volumes of waste arisings from landfill combined with the pressing need for huge levels of further investment in the UK’s waste management and recycling infrastructure.
