Major Eastern Europe Power Markets Open their Doors to Foreign Investors, According to GBI Research

19 Jul 2012 • by Natalie Aster

As power requirements continue to grow across Eastern Europe, countries across the region are increasing market privatization to boost investment from abroad. The countries of Eastern Europe (Russia, Poland, Turkey, the Czech Republic and the Ukraine) are currently in the process of restructuring with the aim of allowing greater privatization. Russia, for example, is offering stakes in key companies and creating significant opportunities for foreign investors as part of a large scale privatization program, due to run from 2011 to 2013. Turkey and the Czech Republic are also making efforts to open up their power markets to higher foreign investment by lowering entry requirement barriers.

New report "Major Power Markets in Eastern Europe to 2020 - Renewable Resources, Privatization, and Easing Barriers to Entry in Russia, Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine and Turkey" by GBI Research highlights a shift in strategy for the area’s power industry that includes increasing competition, improving transparency and diversifying the energy mix.

Furthermore, Eastern Europe is attempting to ease reliance on thermal power by spurring on renewable energy projects. Thermal power accounted for 68.7% of total installed capacity in 2011, however, GBI Research predicts this will fall to 60.3% by 2020, owing to increased renewable energy production. This new emphasis on renewable energy is also serving as a driver for foreign investment with governments enticing companies with attractive incentives.

Fossil fuel based power is the prevalent solution to energy requirements in the region due to the presence of abundant natural resources. Although the renewable energy sector is growing, it cannot satiate population demands, especially considering the rapid industrialisation of the area.
