UK National Grid: Future Energy Scenarios

The 2015 Future Energy Scenarios (FES) explore how the complex energy landscape is changing and analyse how the future might play out.
Great Britain’s energy landscape continues to change at an unprecedented rate. Diversity of supply has increased and globalisation has accelerated, from the international shipping of new sources of gas supplies to the cross border transfer of electricity in Europe.

The World in 2050

The world economy is projected to grow at an average rate of just over 3% per annum from 2011 to 2050,
doubling in size by 2032 and nearly doubling again by 2050.
China is projected to overtake the US as the largest economy by 2017 in purchasing power parity (PPP) terms
and by 2027 in market exchange rate terms. India should become the third ‘global economic giant’ by 2050, a
long way ahead of Brazil, which we expect to move up to 4th place ahead of Japan.
Russia could overtake Germany to become the largest European economy before 2020 in PPP terms and by

The world in 2025

The World in 2025: How the European Union will need to respond" represents a significant contribution to
the policy-making process of the centre-right in European politics. It is a remarkable piece of work, drawing on the
efforts of a large number of people across the European Ideas Network - the network think-tank sponsored by the
EPP-ED Group to bring together elected political office-holders and advisers, academics, outside experts and
representatives of civil society.

The World Gas Market in 2030: Development Scenarios Using the World Gas Model

In this paper, we discuss potential developments of the world natural gas industry at the
horizon of 2030. We use the World Gas Model (WGM), a dynamic, strategic representation of
world natural gas production, trade, and consumption between 2005 and 2030. We specify a
“base case” which defines the business-as-usual assumptions based on forecasts of the world
energy markets. We then analyze the sensitivity of the world natural gas system with
scenarios: i) the emergence of large volumes of unconventional North American natural gas

The World 2040

The Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies had its 35th anniversary in January
2005. For that occasion, we look ahead rather than back and present a possible view
of the World of 2040 A.D. with special attention paid to the Scandinavian countries.
This scenario for 2040 is both explorative and normative. It is our proposal for a possible future, but it does not, of course, rule out other possible scenarios as long as they
satisfy the demands for realism and internal consistency; across a span of 35 years,
the uncertainty is considerable.

The BP energy outlook 2030

BP’s annual Energy Outlook contains our projections of future energy trends and factors that could affect them, based on our views of likely economic and population growth and developments in policy and technology. Together with the annual Statistical Review of World Energy, it has become a respected contribution to the global discussion on energy and I am pleased with the feedback we are receiving.

Exxon Mobile - The outlook for energy 2013

The Outlook for Energy is ExxonMobil’s long-term view of our shared energy
future. We develop the Outlook annually to assess future trends in energy supply,
demand and technology to help guide the long-term investments that underpin
our business strategy.
This year’s Outlook reveals a number of key findings about how we use energy,
how much we will need in the future and what types of fuels will meet demand.

SwissRe - Building a sustainable energy future - Risks and opportunities

With an expanding population and world
economy powered by oil, coal and gas,
fossil fuels have become a large part
of our daily lives. But this has come at
a price: greenhouse gas emissions,
which adversely affect our climate.
How much higher will this price rise
before we achieve a more sustainable
energy system? The Scenarios for
Climate Change project, a research
collaboration by Swiss Re and partners
from the public and private sectors,
gives insights into what tomorrow

Energy to 2050 - Scenarios for a sustainable future

With this book, the IEA explores a longer time horizon using two types of
long-term scenarios: "exploratory scenarios" and "normative scenarios".
Exploratory scenarios are based on the correct identification of a few
critical uncertainty factors and are designed to explore several plausible
