The Mexican government's fight with private power firms over access to the grid owned by state-run Comision Federal de Electricidad, or CFE, threatens further legal conflict over new plants as well as the country's transition to a greener future. The spat directly affects more than $6 billion in partially or already built wind and solar power plants and the grid's technical stability. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's push for a stronger state role in the energy sector also could strike another blow to his already shaky reputation with foreign investors.
The €750 billion recovery plan and the separate €1.1 trillion budget for 2021–27, which were unveiled Wednesday, have earmarked billions for renewable energy, clean transport, hydrogen power and energy-efficient building renovations.
The Trump administration has ended a two-year rent holiday for solar and wind projects operating on federal lands, handing them whopping retroactive bills at a time the industry is struggling with the fallout of the coronavirus outbreak, according to company officials. U.S. power plant owner Avangrid Inc, majority owned by Spain's Iberdrola, received a bill for more than $3 million for two years of rent on its 131-megawatt Tule wind project on federal land near San Diego, according to spokesman Paul Copleman. Officials at two other renewable projects also confirmed they had received retroactive rent bills from the federal government but asked not to be named discussing the issue as the industry continues to lobby the government for support to weather the downturn.

Wind power companies have called on governments to ensure efforts to encourage low-carbon energy are maintained amid the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, according to a statement seen by Reuters. The wind energy sector called on them to keep up their climate commitments in the statement. It was signed by companies including Vestas, Iberdrola, Orsted , Mingyang Group, Nordex and Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, and industry groups such as Global Wind Energy Council.
The Brazilian government expects to announce details of a bailout to power companies next month, Mines and Energy Ministry Secretary Rodrigo Limp told Reuters on Monday. While industry lobby groups have mentioned the power companies would need up to 17 billion reais ($3.2 billion) in credit, Limp said there is no final decision about the size of the bailout needed. A presidential decree earlier this month has allowed the pass-through of the credit cost to consumers in the tariff.

Moody's Investors Service, ("Moody's") today affirmed the Baa1 long-term issuer rating, Baa1 senior unsecured ratings, (P)Baa1 senior unsecured shelf and P-2 short-term commercial paper rating of Avangrid, Inc. Avangrid's outlook is changed to negative from stable due to a weakening financial profile that could remain depressed for the next 2-3 years. Through year-end 2019, Avangrid generated a ratio of cash flow from operations before changes in working capital (CFO pre-WC) to debt of about 16%, which is below Moody's threshold for a factor that could lead to a downgrade. Over the next few years, Avangrid's business risk will rise due to the planned commencement of the 800 megawatt Vineyard Wind offshore wind project (Avangrid's 50% share represents 400 megawatts and is expected to cost the company $1.4 billion).

In the past year European power company stocks have triggered a buying frenzy more akin to headline-grabbing U.S. tech giants following the continent's "green deal". "ESG is intensifying the pace at which active and passive funds move into 'winner' sectors, including utilities," said Antonio Amendola, fund manager at AcomeA in Milan.
In the past year European power company stocks have triggered a buying frenzy more akin to headline-grabbing U.S. tech giants following the continent's "green deal". An EU target to cut carbon emissions to zero by 2050 and expectations of an associated spending boom have fired up shares in electricity firms, providing by far the biggest boost to stock market gains in Europe this year.
Brazilian pulp and paper exporter Suzano Papel e Celulose SA has started discussions with its relationship banks over potential green or sustainability-linked loans, a move that comes as the company looks to reduce its carbon footprint and drive the development of new products from renewable sources. Suzano, which has already issued green bonds in the capital markets, is one of Latin America's largest producers of printing and packaging paper, and the company is under pressure from stakeholders and lenders to introduce more sustainable measures in an industry not typically known for environmentally friendly business practices. "We have several relationship banks that are worried about sustainability in our portfolio," Marcelo Bacci, Suzano's chief financial officer, told Refinitiv in an interview on Wednesday.

Siemens <SIEGn.DE> is buying Iberdrola's <IBE.MC> stake in Siemens Gamesa renewable energy <SGREN.MC>, the German engineering company said, as it prepares to merge the business with its own energy unit ahead of a floatation later this year.

RWE, Germany's biggest power producer, will cut about 6,000 jobs, or nearly a third of its current workforce, by 2030 as the country moves to phase out brown coal as an energy source, the company said on Thursday. It also accelerates RWE's transformation into a pure renewables group, which - along with its low valuation - could turn it into a takeover target, Goldman Sachs said last week. RWE said it would receive 2.6 billion euros ($2.9 billion) in compensation from the government over 15 years to soften the blow to its business.
Under the bill, wind energy projects would be able to qualify for a 30% Investment Tax Credit if they start construction by Jan. 1, 2021 – as opposed to current law requiring them to break ground by Jan. 1, 2020 to get the credit, according to the amendment. Meanwhile, the bill would preserve a planned reduction scheduled to begin next year in an investment tax credit for solar companies, a setback for solar companies that had been lobbying hard for an extension.
Spanish power firm Iberdrola SA <IBE.MC> said on Friday it plans to make its first foray into the Asia-Pacific, building a A$500 million ($343 million) wind and solar farm in Australia. Iberdrola, which up to now has focused on Europe, the United States, Mexico and Brazil, has picked a site in South Australia, Australia's most wind power-reliant state, to build a 320 megawatt hybrid project. "We have spent several years studying the opportunities in Australia, and we now have a healthy initial pipeline of around 650 megawatts of wind and solar projects that we would like to develop," Iberdrola's director of renewable energy, Xabier Viteri, said in an emailed comment.
