We expect wind and solar capacity to grow by 13.5% and 38.5% in 2016 respectively, with overall nonhydopowerrenewables generating a 8.24% share of total electricity generation.

The multi-year extension of the US government's tax credits in December 2015 for solar and wind powerhave increased long-term predictability for investors and developers in the sector, rendering the US oneof the world's most attractive solar markets in the world and led to a strong ten-year forecast also for thewind sector.
