Already a major renewable powerhouse, the US non-hydroelectric renewables market is poised for stronggrowth levels in our ten-year forecast of about 8% capacity growth, primarily on the solar market. Overall,we expect an added 131GW of non-hydro renewable capacity by 2025. While this growth is carriedsignificantly by the five-year tax credit extension until 2020, the outcome of the November presidentialelection will decide over the country's energy path of the next four years with a Republican win severelythreatening to undermine our above renewable growth levels.Latest Updates and Structural Trends

- We expect wind and solar capacity to grow by 10% and 44% in 2016 respectively, with overall nonhydopowerrenewables generating a 88% share of total electricity generation. Overall, non-hydrorenewables capacity is estimated to grow by 17% in 2016, followed by 14% in 2017.

- We maintain our downbeat outlook for US offshore wind power. Continued high costs, due to limitedgovernment support and the lack of a domestic supply chain, will ensure that project developers remainfocused on the country's onshore wind segment.

- The Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit has postponed oral arguments on the Clean Power Plan that wassuspended by the Supreme Court in February 2016 until late September 2016 meaning a decision isunlikely to be made before the November presidential election. The plan aims to reduce emissions frompower plants by 32% (based on 2005 levels) by 2030 and received judicial contestation by several states.
