CLICK TO ENLARGEKUALA LUMPUR: Defensive earnings and a longer term potential in the renewable energy (RE) space may continue to interest investors in the power sector.

While analysts note the lack of a growth catalyst in the mid-term given the large excess capacity in the system, stable earnings by industry players present a sturdy opportunity amid a volatile macro environment.

Notably, the economic reopening since mid-August also points towards a resumption in electricity demand recovery, underpinned by the manufacturing and commercial sectors.

According to MIDF Research, electricity demand saw a gradual recovery in the first half of 2021, rising 4.4% year-on-year (y-o-y) in line with the recovery in macro conditions.However, the third quarter (Q3) saw an interruption in this recovery momentum with demand registering a contraction of 6.7% y-o-y to 26,830GWh (gigawatt hours) following the reimposition of strict lockdowns between June till mid-August.

“While we now expect tepid growth for 2021 given the hiccup in Q3, in the absence of further lockdowns, we expect 2022 demand growth of 2.8% y-o-y to 114.8TWh (terawatt hour), backed by an expected 6% y-o-y gross domestic product (GDP) growth,” it said in a report.

The research house has a “neutral” stance on the power sector given its defensive earnings.

Nonetheless, MIDF highlighted the risk of rising costs for industry players. Fuel prices have trended higher in recent months, boosted by the economic reopening globally.TNB has proposed a RP3 capex of RM24bil, or an average of RM8bil per year.

Primary energy prices, in particular coal, continued to trade at elevated levels throughout the second half of 2021.

Given the grid’s reliance on coal generators, which account for 60% of generation mix, the brokerage expected this to have a bearing on effective tariffs in the near-term with a reversal of the current ICPT (imbalance cost pass-through) rebate position.

“In the near-term, we expect the market’s focus to gravitate around the outcome of the Regulatory Period 3 (RP3) negotiations between Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) and the regulators, which will determine TNB’s regulated profit and base tariffs for the period 2022-2024.

“While we do not rule out possibilities of lower regulated returns for RP3 on the back of declining cost of capital, sector regulators are likely to take a long-term view on this.

“Additionally, regulated asset base is expected to continue to grow for the RP3 period as capital expenditure spending on grid modernisation to facilitate energy transition is expected to pick up pace,” it said.
