However, the number of deals registered decreased to 622, compared to 651 deals in 2017, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

Out of the 622 transactions reported in 2018, 597 were acquisitions while the remaining 25 were mergers. As of 2019 year-to-date (YTD), 244 M&A deals were witnessed. The largest announced M&A deal in the power industry in 2018 was the acquisition of Innogy by E.ON for US$52.9bn.

GlobalData’s latest theme report: ‘M&A in Power - Thematic Research’ reveals that the solar energy segment registered the highest number of M&As during the period 2015–2019 YTD with 661 M&A deals. It is followed by T&D, wind, fossil fuels and hydropower segments, with 654, 461, 305 and 214 M&A deals, respectively.

The report highlights that over the past few years, the power industry has seen a transition towards sustainable clean energy. Power utility companies in mature markets are now witnessing a wave of consolidations, looking to create scale due to the shift towards renewable energy sources, which is pushing them to alter their business models. The consolidation through acquisitions is driven mainly by few companies’ incapability to attain that organically and the acknowledgment that companies require collaboration or cooperation for this transition to occur. 

Sneha Susan Elias, Senior Power Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Power and utility companies are focusing on crucial climate goals and measures in the form of clean energy growth and enhanced natural gas-fired generation to deal with the intermittency issues, safety and security of energy supply, phase-out of coal-fired power plants and nuclear decommissioning. M&A deals involving renewable energy are expected to rise in future due to power and utility companies’ transition towards sustainable clean energy.

“Over the coming two to three years, M&A activity in the power industry is likely to remain strong, backed by a global urge to move away from thermal power towards renewables, although the former will remain relevant.”
