Welcome to our 2016 Power and Renewables Deals outlook. It is the latest in our annual series in which we look at mergers and acquisitions activity in the power utilities sector.
In the downloadable report (click on the icon right) we start the report with a look at some of the main themes that will drive deal activity in the year ahead. We come off the back of something of a landmark year. The past 12 months have seen record levels of power and renewables deal value being transacted in the Asia Pacific region. It was also a year of major growth in renewables deal value.
We move into 2016 with a number of headwinds affecting the wider global economic outlook but some very strong factors driving dealmaking inside the power and renewables sector. On balance we believe the upside factors outweigh the negatives and we expect to see significant power and renewables deal momentum in 2016.
We then highlight the key developments that are likely to characterise 2016 M&A activity in the sector worldwide. We also look at the main deal hotspots which provide particular deal opportunities as well as review who is doing what and where.
We conclude the report with a look at activity in the main regions of the Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe.
