Onshore Renewables 2020

A brand new merchant world: Perspectives and transaction analyses for renewable energy

Here you can find Deloitte’s latest analysis on global transaction prices for onshore wind and solar PV assets, as well as some of our market viewpoints on the renewable energy industry. You can download our article below.

The days of industry reliance on government subsidies have come to an end. The trade-off between economics and sustainable energy has faded. Grid parity and merchant projects are real. Onshore renewables like onshore wind and solar PV have managed to reduce LCOE (levelised cost of electricity) at a remarkable pace. In addition to our transaction analyses on more than 750 transactions of onshore wind and solar PV assets, our 2020 edition now includes our perspectives on the future of the renewable energy industry.

Feature: BeGreen to build one of Scandinavia's largest solar parks
In an interview with Deloitte, the co-founder and chairman of BeGreen, Anders Dolmer, tells us about their 155 MWp solar park under construction. It will be among the first solar parks in Denmark financed 100% free of subsidies. See our Feature on page 4.

Spotlight: Consequences of cost-competitive renewable energy
After years of continuous decline, the cost of renewable energy is now at a level where it can challenge the cheapest conventional power sources. As a result, new renewable projects are being commissioned without any subsidy support. However, subsidy independence comes with new obstacles for renewable project developers. We provide our take on where developers and investors should focus in the decade to come. See our Spotlight article on page 8.

Onshore wind results
Our latest analysis finds the average transaction price of installed onshore wind projects to be EUR 1.6m per MW. See our transaction analysis for onshore wind on page 15 for more details.

Solar PV results
Our latest analysis finds the average transaction price of installed solar PV projects to be EUR 1.8m per MW. See our transaction analysis for solar PV on page 17 for more details.
