Wind Power Market seeing increased risk and disruption

The wind power market has grown at a CAGR of 14% between 2010 and 2021 to reach 830 GW by end of 2021. This has largely been possible due to favourable government policies that have provided incentives to the sector. This has led to an increase in the share of wind in the capacity mix, going from a miniscule 4% in 2010 to 10% in 2021. This is further set to rise to 15% by 2030. However, the recent commodity price increase has hit the sector hard, increasing risks for wind turbine manufacturers and project developers, and the Russia-Ukraine crisis has caused further price increase and supply chain disruption. In light of this, GlobalData has identified which countries are expected to add the majority of wind power capacity out to 2030.

The portfolio comprises five solar assets, with around 400MW of the solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity located in Spain and the remaining 40MW in Italy.

The financial details of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Construction works on the first phase of these projects are expected to begin this year.

Matrix Renewables mergers and acquisitions (M&A) head Iñigo Asensio said: “With this new agreement, we continue to grow our business in Spain and Italy, allowing us to build upon our existing geographical diversification.

“Last year, Matrix became a prominent player in the renewable energy sector, growing our portfolio to more than 3.5GW across Europe, the US and Latin America.

“We will continue to further explore additional opportunities in these geographies this year as we continue to expand globally.”

The partnership comes after Matrix Renewables entered the Italian renewable energy segment last September by partnering with Horus Green Energy Investment.

The two companies agreed to co-develop around 420MW of solar power capacity in Sicily and Lazio.

In November, Matrix Renewables increased its presence in the country by acquiring a 91MW solar portfolio from Solaer.

With its latest deal, the company aims to bolster its position in the European renewable energy market.

Matrix Renewables said that last year, it increased its total footprint by 1.3GW in brownfield projects and 600MW in greenfield projects in the US, Italy, Portugal, Chile and Colombia.

Last February, the company signed an agreement with Rolwind to develop 1GW worth of renewable projects.

Matrix agreed to initially invest in 150MW across three solar PV assets in Huelva province, which are understood to have the potential for co-located energy storage development.
