World Energy Technology Outlook 2050

WETO-H2 is structured around a business-as-usual case, and features two specific scenarios
that reflect the political will of Europe to be at the forefront of the struggle against climate
change and to promote new clean energy technologies:
The “reference case” describes the developments of the world energy system up to 2050, and
the related CO2 emissions assuming a continuation of existing economic and technological
trends. Without determined action, energy demand will double and electricity demand will

Energy Technology Perspectives 2012 - Pathways to a Clean Energy System

Technologies can and must play an integral role in transforming the energy
system. The 2012 edition of Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP 2012) shows clearly
that a technological transformation of the energy system is still possible, despite current
trends. The integrated use of key existing technologies would make it possible to reduce
dependency on imported fossil fuels or on limited domestic resources, decarbonise
electricity, enhance energy effi ciency and reduce emissions in the industry, transport

Deciding the Future: Energy Policy Scenarios to 2050

With this study WEC seeks to contribute further
to the debate on global energy sustainability and
to the understanding of prospective collective
roles in achieving WEC’s mission, “to promote
the sustainable supply and use of energy for the
greatest benefit of all.” The study aims to:

Shell Energy Scenarios to 2050

Never before has humanity faced such a challenging outlook for
energy and the planet. This can be summed up in five words:
“more energy, less carbon dioxide”.
To help think about the future of energy, we have developed two scenarios that
describe alternative ways it may develop. In the first scenario – called Scramble –
policymakers pay little attention to more efficient energy use until supplies are tight.
Likewise, greenhouse gas emissions are not seriously addressed until there are major

Global Transport Scenarios 2050

Over the next four decades, the global transportation
sector will face unprecedented challenges related
to demographics, urbanization, pressure to
minimize and dislocate emissions outside urban
centres, congestion of aging transport
infrastructure and growth in fuel demand...Regional inputs on transport policies, existing and
potential developments in both fuels and
technologies, in addition to major driving forces and
critical uncertainties were all examined and
combined into two distinct transport scenarios

Pathways to 2050

Pathways to 2050: Energy and Climate Change builds on the WBCSD’s
2004 Facts and Trends to 2050: Energy and Climate Change and
provides a more detailed overview of potential pathways to reducing
CO2 emissions.
The pathways shown illustrate the scale and complexity of the
change needed, as well as the progress that has to be made through
to 2050. Our “checkpoint” in 2025 gives a measure of this progress
and demonstrates the urgency to act early to shift to a sustainable
emissions trajectory.

Power Scenarios 2023: Global Scenarios of Electricity Production and Use

The Green Earth scenario is shaped by individual citizens, consumers
and voters. Natural disasters associated with climate change have
shown us that we, the consumers, must do something about the
changing climate. Using natural gas as a transition fuel, we have focused
on renewables such as wind and solar power. The world economy grows
at a modest sustainable pace and the geopolitical situation is stable. We

Energy Revolution: A sustainable world energy outlook

The 2010 Energy
[R]evolution not only includes the financial analysis and employment
calculations in parallel with the basic projections, we have also added
a second, more ambitious Energy [R]evolution scenario. This was
considered vital because rapid improvements in climate science made
it clear during 2009 that a global 50% reduction in energy related
CO2 emissions by 2050 might not be enough to keep the global mean
temperature rise below +2°C. An even greater reduction is needed if
runaway climate change is to be avoided.

The Energy Report 2050: 100% Renewable Energy by 2050

WWF has a vision of a world that is
powered by 100 per cent renewable energy
sources by the middle of this century.
Unless we make this transition, the
world is most unlikely to avoid predicted
escalating impacts of climate change.
But is it possible to achieve 100 per cent
renewable energy supplies for everyone
on the planet by 2050? WWF called
upon the expertise of respected energy
consultancy Ecofys to provide an answer
to this question. In response, Ecofys has
produced a bold and ambitious scenario -

Renewable Energy Scenario to 2040

Two scenarios have been considered
in this briefing :
1. Advanced international
policies scenario (AIP)
The assumptions in this scenario are based on
ambitious growth rates for renewable energy
sources that need additional support measures
in order to be reached.Dynamic current policies scenario (DCP)
Dynamic current policies does not mean “business as
usual”. Assuming that a “business as usual” is seen as
impossible for a sustainable future by a lot of decision
