The Enerdata Global Energy Forecasting team just released the 2018 edition of its 2040 world energy scenarios. Leveraging the POLES model, we offer expert foresight for strategic/business planning and policy making: analysis of energy demand, energy mix and penetration of renewables, evolutions and challenges according to climate constraints and technologies.
The publication provides a global energy overview, with outcomes such as:
- 73% of the demand growth over 2016-2040 will come from Asia, and 14% fromAfrica. (Ener-Blue Scenario, +3-4° temperature increase)
- One kWh generated will produce 71% less CO2 emission in 2040 vs 2016, Ener-Green, (Ener-Green Scenario, +2° temperature increase)
- In 2040, up to 45% of the total car fleet could be electric
