This report provides an insight into the global M&A activity in renewable energy. The findings are based on a survey of over 250 senior executives active in the renewable energy industry worldwide. The survey and report were written in collaboration with VB/Research, a specialist renewable energy research and data provider. Transaction data and statistics included in the report have been extracted directly from VB/Research’s databases.
The survey was conducted between January and March 2010 and was completed by five different types of respondents – corporates, financial investors, debt providers, government bodies and service providers. Among the respondents,
75 percent were top-level executives such as chairpersons, senior executives
or divisional heads. Surveyed respondents were split among Western Europe
(33 percent), North America (29 percent) and Asia-Pacific (18 percent), with Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, and South America accounting for the remaining.
