Green power: KPMG renewable energy M&A report
KPMG's annual review of global mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity in the renewable energy sector.

Green power 2011: KPMG renewable energy M&A report 

This report provides insight into global mergers & acquisitions (M&A) activity in the renewable energy sector. M&A activity in the sector continues to build as soaring oil prices emphasise the importance of the long term hedge offered by renewables.

It is important not to underestimate the increasingly important role of renewables in the low carbon agenda, especially as the energy sector positions itself for future demand growth in the context of carbon reduction targets.

 

Key insights

  • The number of renewable M&A deals increased by over 70 percent between 2009-2010
  • Following significant investment in renewable energy, China has become the second most targeted country for acquisitions
  • The value of Biomass M&A deals more than doubled year on year in 2010 and is poised to maintain this momentum in 2011.
