Insight – Power Generation Construction Projects: Europe”

report has been added to’s

The report provides analysis based on CIC projects showing total project
values for Europe and analysis by stage and funding for the top ten

The top 50 projects are listed for the region giving country, stage,
value and type of power generation construction. Values by ten types of
project power categories are given, including nuclear, wind, coal and
biomass. Power generation capacity (MW) analysis is also provided.
Ranked listings of the key operators for the sector are also provided
showing the leading contractors, consulting engineers and project owners.

Select Findings

  • For Europe as a whole, the project pipeline for wind power projects
    has the highest value, at US$269.6 billion, just ahead of nuclear
    power projects, with US$241.6 billion. Wind power is by far the most
    dominant type of power project in Western Europe, accounting for 61.4%
    of the total pipeline, ahead of nuclear with 14.1%.
  • Assuming all projects proceed as planned, the current pipeline of
    projects will deliver 251.5GW of generating capacity, with 115.5GW in
    Eastern Europe and 136.0GW in Western Europe. For the region as a
    whole, wind power projects have a combined generating capacity of
    91.2GW, of which 74.1GW is accounted for by Western Europe.
  • The pipeline has a relatively high proportion of early stage projects,
    with projects at the planning stage having a total value of US$306.1
    billion, and those at the earlier stages (of announcement and study)
    totaling US$78.5 billion.
  • Funding for projects in the pipeline is predominantly private, with
    privately-funded projects accounting for 54% of the total, followed by
    public with 25%. Joint public and private investment is responsible
    for 21% of power generation project investment in Europe as a whole.
  • The UK has the highest-value project pipeline for Europe, with
    US$238.4 billion, reflecting large-scale investments in new wind power
    generation projects.
  • The highest value project in Europe is the US$37.5 billion Sinop
    Nuclear Power Plant in Turkey. However, the project has been long
    delayed, and there are rising concerns that the Japanese-French
    consortium comprising Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Areva will pull
    out of the project owing to rising costs.

Market Insights

Europe’s mature power generation market is set to decline in terms of
consumption levels, in line with the power generation strategy for EU
countries. The EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive and the Renewable Energy
Directive set targets for energy efficiency (reductions in energy
production) and for the share of energy needs delivered from renewable

According to the BP Statistical Review, energy consumption in Europe
(including Russia) was 2,668 million tonnes oil equivalent (Mtoe) in
2017, with Russia, Germany and France leading with 698.3, 335.1 and
237.9 Mtoe respectively. Although this was an increase on the previous
year, consumption levels are declining in Europe, in contrast to the
positive growth in emerging markets.

The directives relative to renewables are reflected in the energy mix in
the power generation construction projects pipeline. The publisher is
currently tracking power generation construction projects in Europe with
a total value of US$693.2 billion, which includes projects from the
announced to execution stages. Western Europe’s project pipeline totals
US$380.2 billion, ahead of Eastern Europe with US$313 billion.

Loyalist College to launch Canada’s first Technology Access Centre for natural products and cannabis



Reading Time: 3 minutes


Loyalist College is the recipient of a $1,750,000 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) College and Community Innovation (CCI) Program grant over five years to launch Canada’s first Technology Access Centre (TAC) for natural products and cannabis. In addition, Loyalist received $1Mthrough the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) College-Industry Innovation Fund (CIIF) to add specialized equipment to the TAC.

Loyalist was one of 90 recipients at colleges, cégeps and polytechnics across the country to receive part of the $73M in funding, announced today by the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport, at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario. Through the CCI Program and the CIIF, this investment will help post-secondary institutions partner directly with local employers to facilitate commercialization and transform the results of research and development into new technologies to help businesses expand and grow.

The rapid growth of Canada’s cannabis, hops and natural products sectors positions Loyalist’s Applied Research Centre for Natural Products and Medical Cannabis (ARC) as a national innovation hub for small- to medium-sized enterprises. As a TAC, Loyalist will build on the ARC’s 15 years of natural product extraction expertise and analysis-based applied research. In transitioning to a TAC, Loyalist’s ARC will significantly increase the College’s capacity to lead applied research of commercially relevant natural products and cannabis, and to support innovation by enhancing industries’ access to sector-relevant expertise and technology.

The TAC initiative will cultivate an environment for College-industry partnerships to thrive while providing students with unparalleled opportunities for work-integrated learning; investigating extraction, isolation, and formulation; and product development. In partnership with the Quinte Economic Development Commission (QEDC), Loyalist will support the Bay of Quinte’s burgeoning natural products and cannabis sectors to generate regional socioeconomic benefits, and to provide opportunities for a new generation of innovators. Loyalist will also offer companies across Canada a supportive, community-oriented platform from which to enhance their productivity, expand their reach and augment their competitiveness in the global market.


“We are very grateful for NSERC’s continued support and proud to be Canada’s first TAC for natural products and cannabis. Loyalist currently has more than 25 companies interested in applied research, and as our ARC transitions into a TAC, we will be able to meet their requirements while significantly extending our network to help more companies to innovate. Our Biosciences and Cannabis Applied Science students will have the advantage of being involved in ground-breaking research that propels Canada forward as the world leader in cannabis and natural product developments.” – Dr. Ann Marie Vaughan, Loyalist College President & CEO

“It’s great to see this NSERC and CFI funding come through for Loyalist College’s launch of Canada’s first TAC for research in natural products and cannabis. Being able to conduct research in a state-of-the-art facility means that students working in the College’s ARC will be able to build up their expertise in product analysis; which can then be applied directly to commercial development. This is just the beginning of seeing a new series of natural products being designed, assessed, made and delivered from our region.” – Neil R. Ellis, Member of Parliament for Bay of Quinte

“I am so proud to see the innovation that is driving research and economic development in our rural community through Loyalist College’s ARC. Innovation is key to Rural Sustainability and this investment will ensure that we are training the next generation in the latest technological advances. I congratulate them on their NSERC and CFI grant, and wish them all the best of success.” – Mike Bossio, Member of Parliament for Hastings—Lennox and Addington

“The Quinte Economic Development Commission is proud to be a supporting partner with Loyalist College on this important initiative that is aligned with economic development opportunities and priorities in the region. The TAC will support industry research and innovation for companies in key industry sectors as well as helping students develop in-demand skills and experience. Congratulations to the team at Loyalist on launching this important project.” – Chris King, Chief Executive Officer, Quinte Economic Development Commission
