Energy systems flexibility Expert
The shift to a low-carbon energy mix will require the electrification of our economy, the development of variable renewable energies, and the phase-out of dispatchable thermal power plants. This shift will dramatically impact our electricity grids, thus urging the need to make it more flexible.
An expert and our analysts presented the basics of power market flexibility, and provided you with a detailed comparison of two very different systems: the European and North American ones, and their possible evolution.

Every contribution to the climate challenge is vital for the future of our society. Green hydrogen, one of the key decarbonisation pillars, will be a great energy vector for the industry sector.
That being said, how will this technology rise in the near future, and how will it be deployed to tackle the climate challenge?
Our Hydrogen experts unveiled the result of their bottom-up study through an exclusive webinar.

2021 rebound: faster, stronger, harder
After the COVID-19 pandemic recession and the related energy consumption drop in 2020, G20 countries posted a strong economic rebound in 2021 (+6%) due to the catch-up effect. Thus, it brought the energy consumption above the pre-crisis levels, resulting in heightened GHG emissions. Consequently, energy prices surged to reach new records.
Moreover, 2022 started with the Ukraine crisis and its deep impacts on EU energy systems, implying the development of measures to ensure security of supply and less dependency to Russian fossil fuels.

To celebrate Enerdata’s 30th anniversary, we have prepared an exceptional event. We invited international renowned experts in energy and climate domains to talk about the evolutions since 1990, and the challenges we will face until 2050.
Four online conferences are planned to address different issues within this overall framework. Every Tuesday from noon to 1:30 PM CET, we invite you to partake to these conferences based on short presentations and roundtables animated by questions from the audience.
The largest power generation companies (GenCos) in the world have a tremendous impact on climate change. Indeed, plans to diversify the mix significantly modify the share of carbon-free energy in the final electricity consumption. Those strategies (and implementation) are key levers to meet the Paris Agreement targets.
This said, what actual changes have occurred since 2015 for main players?

Case study of the end of thermal cars in the transport sector.
To define investments, territorial planning and energy security, public authorities and private companies need to thoroughly forecast energy demand. In the transport sector alone, there have been some game changers over the last couple of years, for instance:
During this webinar, we presented our experts’ methodology, leveraging our new EnerMED model:
Hydrogen is proving to be a major component of the energy transition and is foreseen as one of the pillars for key energy systems’ decarbonisation. Not only it can be produced from renewable energy sources to fuel the transport and the industry sectors, but also it can be used as a power storage solution.
During this webinar, we pictured the hydrogen ecosystem:

THE 2050 PATHWAYS PLATFORM
To which extent is the transition to less carbon-intensive transport progressing in Europe?
The decarbonisation of transport has been identified as one of the key priorities of net-zero emissions strategies. However, emissions keep growing significantly in that sector. What improvement have been made? What are the drivers and difficulties shaping this transition?
During this webinar, Enerdata experts presented a selection of key indicators related to the four levers of the decarbonisation of transport:
They also identified best practices among European countries in these four dimensions, relating them to policies and measures implemented at EU and country level.
Speakers of this decarbonisation of the European transport sector webinar :
The 12th webinar in the Odyssee-Mure Academy on Energy Efficiency took place on 30 March 2021.
"The energy transition in transport is lagging far behind other sectors. However, some countries are performing better than others".
After 6 years of regular decrease, the energy consumption of transport in the EU has been rising again since 2013, at the same rate as before the financial crisis. It has become the most energy consuming end-use sector, responsible for 31% of the final energy consumption in the EU27 in 2019.
During this webinar, our experts presented an evaluation of the energy efficiency trend in the European transport sector since 2000.
Laura Sudries and Bruno Lapillonne from ENERDATA.
Following a European Commission proposal last year, EU leaders agreed in December 2020 to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 55% compared to 1990 levels by 2030. This represents a substantial increase from the earlier target of 40% and was initially met with some resistance by several Member States.
To meet this new objective, the European power sector will need a major overhaul. What impacts will this have on the power markets' evolution, and on prices?
Enerdata and Compass Lexecon have leveraged their European Power Markets Outlook Service for this interactive webinar, which took place on March 4th, 2021.
European power market modelling – Hourly equilibrium
Highlights of the webinar included:
An analysis of the latest annual EU countries price projections to 2050.
As countries gradually revise their NDCs to target more ambitious emissions reductions, Enerdata and Climate Transparency analyse current mitigation trajectories, and how the current Covid-19 pandemic might impact mid- and long-term goals.
Based on the recent Climate Transparency report, fed by a number of Enerdata’s analyses, we summed up 2020 trends and took an in-depth look at 2021 with regard to the upcoming NDC revision and next round of climate negotiations (COP26), and what consequences national recovery plans could have on decarbonisation efforts.

In June 4th we hosted a live webinar to present the Enerdata Global Energy Trends, an analysis of consolidated 2019 statistics and indicators (demand, emissions, energy transition), at world level and with a focus on key countries. In view of the current context, we have also assessed the implications of the pandemic (and subsequent macroeconomic upheavals) on energy systems, leveraging estimates and short-term scenarios (2020 and beyond).
The presentation was followed by an interactive Q&A session with the participants.
As part of its support mission to the Algerian Ministry of Energy, financed by the French development agency (AFD), Enerdata was in Algiers from 10 to 14 February 2020 to present a first version of its energy transition scenarios adapted to the Algerian context.
Our EnerNEO tool, which allows the construction of these long-term energy scenarios, has in this case been tailored in order to better reflect the specificities of the Algerian energy sector. The final version of the model will be delivered at a later point to the Algerian authorities, who will be trained in its use in order to be able to prepare scenarios for 2050.
This week was an opportunity for Patrick Criqui (photo), associate expert of Enerdata, to present to a large audience the first results of these scenarios. These will still need to be subjected to some adjustments, particularly in the light of the government's new action plan, published that same week.
We organised a workshop on "Simulation of greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions in the energy sector in Tunisia up to 2050" with the Tunisian National Agency for Energy Management (ANME) at Enerdata in Grenoble on 3-4 February 2020, with participants from ANME’s Department of Studies and Planning and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) - Tunisia.
The workshop, which took place in the framework of our cooperation with ANME (see the project's summary here), offered the opportunity to discuss the socio-economic and energy assumptions of the scenarios, and the first results from the simulations.
The mission also included a capacity building component. A session was dedicated to the concepts of final and primary energy intensity and carbon intensity as well as methods for decomposing the effects that explain changes in energy demand and GHG emissions.
Another session, dedicated to modelling and forecasting, addressed the following topics:
The next step in the project will be the validation of the scenarios.
Enerdata participated to EDF’s Sesame International Workshop in Paris (La Défense) on 23rd January 2020. The subject of the yearly internal workshop was long-term energy markets and it included presentations from the International Energy Agency and IHS Markit among others, with topics ranging from the impact of political tensions on the prices of energy commodities to the global development potential of offshore wind.
In a first presentation, the EnerFuture scenarios were introduced with key results on the global long-term evolution of energy demand and CO2 emissions. A special focus was put on high decarbonisation pathways with Enerdata’s recent work on carbon-neutral scenarios being presented as well. A second presentation consisted of an analysis of energy transition in emerging Asian countries, in particular the role of the electrification of energy demand and decarbonisation of the electricity supply, including detailed results for three different cases: China, India and Vietnam.
Enerdata attended the COP 25 in Madrid beginning of December 2019. There was a lot of interest and exchanges on energy transition topics, and to continue the discussion, we organised a webinar on Energy Transition Monitoring (EnerTraM) in emerging markets on 17th December 2019. This live session featured in-house expert analysis on energy transition progress in ten key emerging countries.
Enerdata organised a webinar on 4th December, 2019. This live session featured in-house analysis by our experts, as part of our work on EnerFuture scenarios and the Energy Transition.
We focused on the various strategic alternatives available to governments and companies, the energy mix options and the role of electricity. We explored the issues surrounding the implementation of the Paris Agreement, then went beyond that perspective and analyse the requirements implied by a zero net emission economy.
Sylvain Cail, Head of Global Energy Forecasting at Enerdata, participated to the Wind of Energy Transition seminar organised by the World Energy Council – Italy. The event took place in Rome on 29th November 2019. Its aim was to enable a multi-stakeholder dialogue between European institutions and companies involved in the wind sector and foster the exchange of experiences and information on national regulations and projects in place and planned for wind parks.
Enerdata contributed to the “Outlook on Global and European Wind Energy” session. Sylvain Cail gave a keynote speech on historical trends and the current situation worldwide for the wind industry, and presented an outlook based on the EnerFuture scenarios. He highlighted the emissions and capacity planning for wind with regard to the NDCs, before diving into the specifics of the French situation.
A few take-aways:
The Electrification Europe 2019 summit organised by EDF took place on 16 and 17 October 2019. Its objective: to provide participants with a space to learn, collaborate and participate in the reflection on electrification solutions to encourage a low-carbon society. Round tables and more technical sessions were organised around four areas of expertise: electric mobility, decarbonising buildings and industry, regulation and finance, and innovation and electrification.
During the "Financing an electrified economy" round table, our president Pascal Charriau presented the historical and future trends in electrification at the global level, whether in industry, transport or construction. The forecasts were based on EnerFuture's EnerBlue and EnerGreen scenarios, respectively on compliance with NDCs or a maximum temperature increase of 2°C at the end of the century. He highlighted the conditions for an acceleration of electrification, in particular the financial levers (taxes, subsidies, debts and obligations...)
Enerdata, as a long-time World Energy Council partner, participated in the 24th World Energy Congress, which took place in Abu Dhabi from 9th to 12th September 2019. The interest in the conference was particularly high this year, with over 4000 attendees from all over the world, more than 100 exhibitors, and 250 speakers.
Our stand was well visited by numerous WEC delegates and visitors. They were seeking foresight on topics such as the global energy demand both for fossil fuels and for renewables, energy efficiency, the energy transition, and energy data science. Both for industrial strategy and for energy policies, to use in the determination of their industrial strategy or to develop their energy policies.
We had meetings with a number of our existing clients, such as the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Energy and Industry, the International Renewable Energy Agency, the Saudi research centre KAPSARC, and industrial players. We also took part in the conferences and associated events and exchanged with our peers on the aforementioned issues.
With historically high energy consumption and CO2 emissions from the G20, 2018 was an important year for both energy and climate. That’s why our analysts produce Global Energy Trends – a comprehensive, independent report on the past year’s energy market trends in the G20 and the resulting environmental impacts.
On June 6th, we hosted a live webinar with members of Enerdata’s leadership discussing this year’s statistics and in-house analysis from the report.
Highlights of the topics we discussed in detail:
The presentation was followed by an interactive Q&A session with the participants.
Climate Chance is an association that supports the fight against climate change by creating synergies between diverse, non-state actors around the world who work at the local level to promote climate action.
They just published their first global report, and Enerdata was very happy to contribute by providing data and analysis. We also participated in the high-level launch events, both at the French Senate in Paris last month, and at COP24 in Katowice, Poland.
Since 2017, Enerdata has been assisting the Mexican National Commission for Efficient Energy Use (CONUEE) to evaluate energy efficiency in Mexico. (This is part of a project of ADEME – the French Environment and Energy Management Agency – carried out with financial support from the AFD – the French Development Agency).
In the context of the greater priority given to fuel poverty by the new Mexican government, we recently reviewed existing efficiency policies and measures to tackle fuel poverty in the EU and in emerging countries.
In November, Dr. Bruno Lapilonne, Enerdata co-founder and expert on energy demand and efficiency, presented the latest results at a conference in Mexico.
With record attendance topping 9,000 participants and delegates, the POWER-GEN Asia conference, held this year in Jakarta, Indonesia, was a successful exchange.
Notable guests included several Indonesian government ministers, as well as keynote speakers from a variety of organisations. Enerdata also returned to the event this year, with our CEO, Pascal Charriau, speaking as a member of the opening plenary panel discussion: “Coal vs Renewables: Asia's Balancing Act.”
Enerdata looks forward to joining the discussion again at next year’s conference in Kuala Lumpur.
Following the presentation of their policy brief on April 10th; I4CE and Enerdata presented the official publication of their study «Mind the gap»: Aligning the 2030 EU climate and energy policy framework to meet long-term climate goals for a better coordination of climate and energy policies through the regulation on the Governance of the Energy Union.
Enerdata, presented a no-cost webinar hosted by the Clean Energy Solution Center, untitled "Climate Action in Asian and Pacific Countries: The implications of NDCs and the role of carbon pricing for the energy sector" on June 6th.
By 2030, Asian and Pacific countries may account for more than half of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Consequently, evaluating the implications of nationally determined contributions and the role of carbon pricing in the Asia-Pacific region will be essential to helping prevent climate change. This webinar addresses these topics and presents the results of an exclusive study leveraging the Enerdata EVALUATE model. During the webinar, Enerdata experts will discuss these questions:
The presentation was followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
Based on its latest annual data on G20 countries, Enerdata has hosted a webinar for a presentation of our findings and a discussion with our experts.
The main questions addressed by the webinar:
The presentation was followed by an interactive Q&A session with the participants.
On April 10th, Enerdata in collaboration with I4CE, presented a publication entitled « Mind the gap: aligning the 2030 EU climate and energy policy framework to meet long-term climate goals ».
Co-written with I4CE, the study analyses and quantifies the interactions within the energy and climate framework. It then describes policy options to implement an ambitious and coherent policy mix, which would enable the EU to respect its commitment under the Paris Agreement.
On the occasion of the publication of their policy brief, I4CE and Enerdata invited you to the presentation of their analysis and conclusions.
Enerdata presented a no-cost webinar on the Energy Transition Monitoring methodology, including analysis and case studies.
In the framework of the Paris Agreement, most countries in the world committed to reducing their greenhouse emissions. These commitments are now incorporated in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) that indicate the targets for 2025–2030. This said, most studies consider that current NDCs are incompatible with the "below 2°C" target of the Paris Agreement.
Enerdata aims to identify two gaps: an "implementation gap" between the observed trends and the NDCs goals of energy and climate transition policies, and a "trajectory gap" between the NDCs and 2°C compatible trajectories. To do so, Enerdata combines relevant data from (1) the existing Enerdata international energy databases, (2) structured information on NDCs and national policies and (3) energy projections according to the EnerFuture country-level scenarios leveraging the POLES world energy model for 56 countries.
The webinar presented the EnerTraM tool, and methodology, as well as analyses and case studies on four countries that reflect diversity in terms of data availability, country status and decarbonisation policies: Mexico and Vietnam as emerging countries, Senegal as a developing country and France as an industrialized country.
The presentations were followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
Enerdata presented a no-cost webinar, hosted by Leonardo ENERGY: Aligning the climate and energy framework to meet EU long-term climate ambition.
Under today’s circumstances, EU climate targets and policies fall short of its long-term climate ambition. Counterproductive interactions undermine the energy and climate policies’ efficiency and the agreed reform of the EU ETS will not be sufficient to mitigate overlapping effects of other policies on the EU ETS. Negotiations on the EU 2030 climate and energy framework are the opportunity to implement Paris Agreement’s goals in the EU. In this 2018 EU policy context, specially to feed-in the negotiations of the Governance of the Energy Union, Enerdata has modelled different scenarios including last EU ETS, ESR designs using the global energy system simulation model (POLES). The study proposes an ex-ante estimation of policy interactions on GHG emissions, and explores policy options on how to better align policies to mitigate these interactions and meet EU long-term climate ambition in line with the Paris Agreement.
Transitioning Towards Sustainable Low-Carbon City Development.
Enerdata joined leaders from Asian Governments, leading think-tanks and global corporations this past November 29th & 30th in Changsha to discuss the pathways to develop Cities with low carbon technologies and innovations.
Enerdata introduced best practices and sharing case studies to Low carbon city implementation and towards China's ambitious plan to meet the Paris Agreement for GHG emissions before 2030.
The main purpose of this Forum was to introduce the most advanced LCTs and exchange global experience and lessons on developing low carbon cities through LCT innovation and investment.
The agenda for the conference touched on global low carbon technology scenarios, and considered its international impact. The important areas covered featured views from the international community to discuss the type of global-level directions required to strengthen low carbon technology development, and the importance of international collaboration in empowering cities to adapt low carbon technologies.
Some of the speakers this year included:
Enerdata attended the Singapore International Energy Week, from October 16 to 19th. Energy experts and leaders were present to debate about their views of the future of energy. Christoph Frei of the World Energy Council presented his global trends of the energy market, and experts from ABB and the World Bank discussed carbon strategies and policies.
Enerdata, in partnership with The Clean Energy Solutions Center, hosted a webinar : " Determining Future Energy Efficiency Potential across Sectors: Case Study on Germany " on the main energy efficiency drivers at sectoral and end-use levels, and their impact on future energy consumption.
Energy demand is a growing concern as reserves are gradually depleting, emissions mitigation is getting more and more urgent, and there are still technological, business and political hurdles to a widespread development of renewable and clean energies globally. Robust forecasting plays a vital role in energy supply-demand management for both government bodies and private companies as national objectives set in energy plans are becoming more and more ambitious. For this reason, Enerdata has been developing over the last two decades the EnerMED model, (previous Medpro) used by policymakers as well as business and strategic planners to forecast energy consumption at the country level and determine and rank the energy efficiency potential across sectors.
This webinar « Determining Future Energy Efficiency Potential across Sectors: Case Study on Germany » analysed the overall energy demand pathways of different EnerMED (previous MedPro scenarios in the particular case of Germany. The analysis quantified the huge importance of the residential and transport sectors as primary energy efficiency pools.
The webinar was carried on by Dr. Manfred Hafner.
EU ETS: last call before the doors close on the negotiations for the post-2020 reform in Paris.
On October 10th, Enerdata participated in the presentation of a report titled EU ETS: last call before the doors close on the negotiations for the post-2020 reform in Paris. Co-written with I4CE and IFPEN, the document reviews the ETS revision proposals from both the EU Parliament and the EU Council, and their possible long-term consequences on the trading scheme. It assesses whether the reforms will be enough to make the ETS a credible asset to the EU climate change policy. It also anticipates how the implementation of a price corridor in the EU and the Brexit might affect the future of the program.
Dr Cyril Cassisa, representing Enerdata, spoke on the subject of the POLES prevision model which was used in the report to forecast the evolution of the ETS by 2040. These previsions have been calculated from scenarios based on possible outcomes of the negotiations now taking place between EU institutions.
On September 4-7, Dr. Manfred Hafner, Vice-President at Enerdata, participated to the 15th International Association for Energy Economists IAEE European Conference 2017 in Vienna. He was invited to address a plenary session on “Geopolitics of oil and gas in Europe” and to specifically address the subject of “Energy Supply Security in Europe”.
Dr. Hafner argued that thanks to the oversupplied oil and gas markets combined with the changing gas market structure, traditional security of supply considerations have today lost some of their urgency, but there are new security of supply issues emerging, which are linked to the energy transition, and which should be taken seriously. These relate to some degree to the capability of integration of a very rapidly increasing penetration of intermittent renewable energy sources into electricity grids, but much more importantly, the risk of cyberattacks on our electricity grids. Our electricity grids are indeed more and more vulnerable as we advance with the ongoing 3-D revolution (Decarbonisation, Digitalisation and Decentralisation) which will more and more be based also on smart grids. He therefore concluded that Europe needs to prepare itself for the threats of the future and not just focus on the threats of the past. In addition, Dr. Hafner was also asked to preside two parallel sessions of the conference, one on fossil fuels and one on renewable policy.
Enerdata in partnership with PennWell organised the two-half day PowerGen & Renewable Energy World workshops in Europe.
The workshop was structured as follows:
Dr. Manfred Hafner, Vice-President at Enerdata, participated on 28 June 2017 at two panel discussions at the Power Gen Conference in Cologne: one on “Strategies for change: can we manage 2030 sustainability?” and the other on “Renewable Energy: update, objective and impact”. This allowed Dr. Hafner to present Enerdata’s “Enerfuture” scenarios and energy modelling capabilities, and to elaborate in particular on different sustainability approaches and pathways into the future in different continents and countries as well as to elaborate on renewable energy outlooks under different scenarios. During the panel discussions he elaborated Enerdata’s views on the ongoing and future fundamental energy system transformations related to policy driven top-down decarbonisation based transformations as well as bottom-up technology driven digitalisation based transformations linked with decentralization of energy systems. In addition to the policy and technological drivers, he also stressed the economic and societal aspects of these transformations.
Enerdata recently presented the “Global Energy Trends, 2017 edition” to top energy journalists and to a panel of customers in Paris.

Get the Enerdata's 2017 edition downloading it directly from the Global Energy Trends, 2017 page.
As every year Enerdata is the first organisation to release a Global Energy Trends analysis, based on its latest annual data on G20 countries.
Enerdata has hosted a webinar for a presentation of our findings and a discussion with our experts.
Main questions addressed by the webinar :
Enerdata’s Vice-President Consulting, Dr. Manfred Hafner has recently participated in a high-level panel discussion on the “East Mediterranean Basin: A New Gas Hub for Europe” with the Energy Ministers of Egypt, Cyprus, Lebanon and Greece as well as the Chief Exploration Officer of Eni. The panel was organised in the framework of the Offshore Mediterranean Conference (OMC2017) in Ravenna on March 29th.
In his introductory speech, Dr. Hafner presented different valorisation and export options of the important natural gas finds in the Eastern Mediterranean, including different pipeline and LNG options, and argued that we are in the presence of a circular problem: if there are political or commercial risks that no export infrastructure will be in place when production starts, a lot of money will be lost. If on the other side the field underperforms compared to expectations, expensive export infrastructure will sit idle. Therefore, connecting an underused and scalable export infrastructure like the Egyptian LNG plants with several promising fields in the area could be the key to unlocking the untapped regional potential. He thus underlined the importance to have a cooperative approach among different countries, as interconnections create interdependencies, and interdependencies promote stability and peace. The bigger the gas resources, the more important they become for all parties involved and they can become a political game-changer in the region. All the Ministers of the region present at the panel have during their interventions reiterated the importance of regional cooperation.
Enerdata, in partnership with Clean Energy Solutions Center, hosted a webinar on “Risk assessment of power projects in Asia”.
With the cost of renewables dropping year-on-year and with the need of additional capacity in regions such as Africa and Asia, then having a rigorous methodology to identify areas of opportunities and risk is paramount. Enerdata has her in-house Enerdata Energy Risk Index (ERI) methodology to execute risk analysis for power related projects. The ERI methodology is capable to qualify and quantify market risks in order for companies to efficiently take actions to prevent loss of capital.
Enerdata discussed the outlook on global and regional energy trends, trends of Levelised Cost of Electricity, Feed-in-Tariff systems, benchmarking results between countries and real case studies of power related projects including Malaysia, Cambodia and Japan.
During the webinar we touched the main topics that a Feasibility Study Elements for a Power Project needs to cover such as Policy and Regulatory Assessment; Market Assessment & Sizing; Technology Selection; Economic Analysis and Risk Assessment. In the case studies we assessed how the energy trade balances and energy policies are designing the future of the fuel mix for power generation. In the Japan case, Nuclear restart takes a major assessment because it is and will impact the LNG consumption in the country and also the LNG prices globally since Japan is the major Global LNG importer. In the Indonesia case, the 1000+ islands play a key factor on what is feasible and what is not feasible. And for Malaysia, the no-existence of renewable plays a key dilemma for the future energy mix of the country that is already experiencing shortage of domestic oil & gas production.
Used methodology and tools
The following resources have been used to produce the detailed analysis:
Enerdata Singapore Managing Director, Antonio Della Pelle, has actively contributed to the seminar called “INNOVATIONS IN ENERGY SERVICES”, organised by the Singapore Manufacturing Federation and Clarion Event. The seminar has been organised to help Singapore energy management professionals to prepare for the stricter energy efficiency and emission control regime and implement renewable energy solutions within the Singapore Energy Environment. Antonio moderated one of the sessions, and shared with the audience the vast experience that Enerdata has related to Energy Efficiency, including the regional projects such as Odyssee (Europe) and Cepal (Latin America), plus several contributions at country level in Asia. Enerdata shared the fact that Energy Efficiency is performing very well in the building and commercial sectors and not doing too well in the industry sector. Based on our projects we noted that, at the EU level, energy efficiency for final consumers, as measured by ODEX, improved by an average of 1.3 % per year from 2000 to 2014. In industry, the pace of energy efficiency improvements has been halved since the economic crisis (1.1 % per year since 2008, compared with around 2.2 % per year between 2000 and 2008). In the residential sector, despite the economic crisis, there has been steady progress and larger gains than in the other sectors (1.8 % per year). This trend can be explained by the introduction of the many regulations affecting buildings and appliances. The efficiency in the transport sector is steadily increasing by 1 % per year, mainly thanks to cars, as efficiency gains slowed down for other modes.
The industry lacks of proper regulations and policies and the Energy Efficiency becomes highly depending on ROI (Return On Investments), and with low energy prices, energy efficiency solutions are becoming too expensive. Interesting to share, that Mr. Ang Kok Kiat, Director, Energy Efficiency & Conservation Department, NEA, told the audience some future plans of the Singapore Government to introduce new regulations on motors energy efficiency within the industry that coupled with the recent announcement of the introduction of a carbon tax in Singapore, then the Singapore Industry needs to embrace Energy Efficiency solutions no matter what, because now both regulations and ROI will support such activities.
Enerdata is well-placed to support the companies’ strategies for future Energy Planning and is looking forward to being an active contributor of Singapore Energy Reduction activities by sharing its 30 years of experience working both at policy and plant levels. Please contact us if you would like to learn more how Enerdata experience can support your plans.

Enerdata conducted several workshops and webinars in Europe and all over the world to present its EnerFuture World Energy Scenarios to 2040.
Enerdata’s Global Energy Forecast team recently published its 2016 EnerFuture scenarios update, which provides a comprehensive expert insight for strategic business planning and policy making.
The publication is based on findings from EnerFuture service and POLES model, and covers key issues and trends in world energy demand, supply and CO2 emissions.
Several workshops and webinars have taken place or will soon take place in Europe and Asia, led by Pr Manfred HAFNER, VP Consulting, and Yasmine ARSALANE, Project Manager. Several hundreds of attendees showed a great interest and raised many questions about the different scenarios and implications on their business or policies.
On April 5th, 2016 The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with Enerdata, hosted a no-cost webinar on Global Energy Scenarios to 2040.
Following the COP 21 in Paris, Enerdata produced 3 global energy scenarios up to 2040: Ener-Blue, Ener-Green and Ener-Brown. The Ener-Blue scenario provides an outlook of energy systems up to 2040, based on the achievement of the 2030 targets as defined in the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) announced at the COP 21. Ener-Green explores the implications of more stringent energy and climate policies to limit the global temperature increase at around 1.5-2°C by the end of the century. Finally, Ener-Brown describes a world with durably low fossil fuel energy prices, affecting the entire energy system over time. These different scenarios explore the consequences on energy supply and demand, energy mix and energy prices by fuel and region, as well as the implications on climate issues.
This webinar provided an overview of the results related to the Ener-Blue scenario (INDCs), its impacts on different energy sources and geographical regions, as well as its challenges in implementation. It also showed what additional commitments are needed to move from the Ener-Blue scenario to the Ener-Green (2°C) scenario, and it presented the consequences of the Ener-Brown scenario which considers an abundance of cheap hydrocarbon resources and its effect on renewables and emissions.
The presentations were followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.

On February 25th, 2016, Enerdata was invited to speak at the, “Oil Price Rout and Its Impacts on Singapore,” event organized by the Singapore Business Federation. Antonio Della Pelle, Enerdata Singapore’s Managing Director, spoke in front of an audience of more than 100 people about the future of oil. During the thirty minutes talk, Enerdata shared its forecasts covering five major drivers of oil price, namely supply and demand, financial sector speculation, geopolitics, competing energies and country energy policies.
Following the overview there was a panel discussion in which the audience asked for more insight from Enerdata and other guest speakers.
The main insights shared by Enerdata were that of the oil market and of a necessary return to supply and demand fundamentals. According to Enerdata Experts, oil prices will remain between $30 – $50 for the next 12- 18 months unless major geopolitical and macroeconomic events occur, COP 21 and climate change mitigation may play against future oil demand and geopolitics and security of supply will continue to drive oil market prices.
If you would like to gain more insight about the material presented and discussed by the Enerdata oil experts please contact us.
Following on the success of the Enerdata Exclusive Energy Seminars held in Singapore and Tokyo, on Tuesday December 15, Enerdata has delivered the first Exclusive Energy Seminar in Kuala Lumpur.

Enerdata, in partnership with The Clean Energy Solutions Center, hosted a no-cost, webinar-based training on Energy Efficiency in Transport analysing the successes and failures.
Transport is widely recognized as one of the most difficult sectors for improving energy efficiency and slowing energy demand growth, as part of the problem goes beyond energy efficiency policy measures. Most G20 countries have focused so far on improving the energy efficiency of cars. While in many OECD countries transport energy demand has been decreasing, partly because of these measures and partly because of the economic downturn, in emerging countries transport energy demand is still growing rapidly, driven by the increase in traffic of goods and passengers and a modal shift to road transport.
The purpose of this webinar was to review the various policy measures implemented in the transport sector (such as minimum energy performance standards, labels and promotion of modal shifts) within the European Union and in G20 countries and to relate them to energy demand growth and energy efficiency improvements.

On Tuesday 8th April, Antonio Della Pelle, Managing Director of ENERDATA PTE LTD gave a morning talk to the members of the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce about Nuclear Power and its impact on Asia.
After the Fukushima accident the very idea of a nuclear renaissance has been turned upside down. Until recently, nuclear energy was still perceived by many as a reasonably affordable option to generate bulk electricity while increasing security of supply and mitigating climate change concerns. A defining moment for world energy markets, the Fukushima accident have initially lead to new projects being delayed and cancelled, existing plants decommissioned earlier than planned, and safety rules thoroughly reassessed.
As an initial consequence, the cost of existing and new nuclear power generation have risen and made nuclear relatively less competitive against gas, coal, or wind power; especially in liberalised electricity markets. However, few years have passed since and we are witnessing that many countries are still seriously considering nuclear as an acceptable option to diversify their mix, increase their energy security and free up oil and gas resources for exports. Few example to mention are the UK Hinkley Point C project that is causing a lot of debates between UK and EU commission, the newly Poland rectified Nuclear Power Program, the decision for South Korea to spend US$7bn to build new reactors and the Japan opposition party making a propaganda agenda based on a free-nuclear country and much more.
Definitely, there is a lot going on about Nuclear and the Enerdata gave a brief summary of the Global Nuclear Power Generation trends, high level view of the latest key countries’ energy policies and an update of the decommissioning and the new projects with particular focus to the South East Asia region and highlights about Singapore position about Nuclear.
Antonio Della Pelle, the Managing Director of Enerdata Singapore, said about the talk “ We, at Enerdata Pte Ltd, have made a mission to educate people on key energy related issues by bringing a 3600 views on the subjects. I really much enjoyed seeing the room full of people with diverse background joining our discussion about Nuclear because we are all involved in it from its many different aspects from Analysts to manufacturers, from bankers to lawyers and etc.”. He continued saying: “We made a commitment to SICC that we will bring another energy talk by the end of the year to add value to the Enerdata SICC membership participation”.
