Transport is often the fastest growing sector for energy demand in emerging countries. Because the sector depends almost entirely on fossil fuels, this growth also has an outsized impact on GHG emissions.
Yet there have been notable improvements to energy efficiency of transport in many of the 16 emerging countries we analysed for this Executive Brief. The analysis also sheds light on what significance these improvements have, and which policies have induced them.

According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), US liquefied natural gas (LNG) export capacity is slated to reach 8.9 bcf/d (251 mcm/d or 91.7 bcm/year) by the end of 2019, making it the third largest in the world after Australia and Qatar.
Under the EU’s ODYSSEE-MURE project, Enerdata has developed and maintained six user-friendly data tools to help our users, including policy makers and energy economists, analyze energy efficiency changes and improvements in all EU countries, Switzerland, Serbia and Norway.
The tools present the latest available energy data and drivers for each country, all gathered in one database. Two of the newest tools developed and updated by Enerdata this fall are Combined Scoreboard and Decomposition.
One effect of a successful energy transition will be a lessening of economic and geostrategic dependence on fossil fuels. But dependence will increase on certain critical materials, including lithium, cobalt and others.
With this in mind, how can advanced economies avoid becoming critically dependent on these materials?
The French Development Agency (Agence Française de Développement, or AFD) aims to fight poverty and promote sustainable development all over the world. The AFD’s strategy focuses on climate change and supporting low-carbon trajectories in the developing countries where it operates.
Enerdata is tasked with compiling Country Climate Factsheets for the AFD, in cooperation with partners Solagro and EcoAct.
Enerdata is working with ENERCAL – the TSO (transmission system operator) in New Caledonia – to elaborate electricity demand forecasts through 2040, as well as associated load curves.
As a remote island territory, New Caledonia is not interconnected with other electricity grids, which means the power system manager faces significant challenges. Electricity demand is growing steadily, and three-quarters of demand currently comes from industry....
This autumn, we finished a complete redesign of our industry-leading Power Plant Tracker service – the continually updated database of new projects and existing plants for renewable and thermal generation in 115 countries.
It now includes CAPEX and LCOE information to guide investment decisions, and has a faster, more intuitive interface and search function.
Southeast Asia has made important advances in access to electricity and economic development, but struggles to reduce its carbon intensity in balance with these development demands.
Even more concerning, current NDCs are not strong enough to address the decarbonisation needed in a global two-degree scenario.
The current work is in partnership with the German Society for International Cooperation (Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, or GIZ).
The first phase of EnerNEO development began in...
The French Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition (MTES) has selected Enerdata to lead a project and build scenarios targeting Zero Net Emissions at the EU level by 2050.
The European Commission plans to publish its long-term energy roadmap soon, and the Ministry will be armed with Enerdata’s scenarios to contribute to the debate.
This study will be conducted in partnership with Solagro and Seureco.

The 20-year-old project Odyssee is supported by the European Commission and coordinated by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME). This database contains energy consumption drivers, efficiency and CO2 related indicators by sector from 1990 until 2016 for the 28 EU members plus Norway. Enerdata manages the online database providing easy-to-use data query software that permits advanced analysis.
110+ insightful and comprehensive country reports covering policy/regulatory, market structure, players, supply and demand, prices, infrastructure and prospects. Includes visual graphs and easy-to-read tables. Easy country benchmark, content search engine and custom report generation.
This innovative service is dedicated to future energy consumption by sector, drilling down to end uses and industrial branches. Enerdata’s Country Energy Demand Forecast offers a powerful modelling platform that is delivered on a simple web interface.
The LNG database gives detailed and up-to-date information of liquefaction, regasification facilities and LNG carriers for North and South America, Asia or EMEA. Reports identify key gas companies through their shareholdings in processing plants, highlight major projects in new gas producing and importing countries and project future LNG market developments by LNG zone, location, facility name and type.
This powerful intelligence tool allows you to screen, monitor and analyse power generation asset development. Power Plant Tracker gives you an in-depth understanding of the future of the power generation mix, so you can to assess the industry drivers and identify companies’ asset portfolios.
