Energy Transition Outlook 2019

Power supply and use forecast to 2050

Implications of our energy forecast to 2050 for key stakeholders involved in electricity generation, including renewables; electricity transmission and distribution; and energy use.

Amidst electricity use increasing rapidly and production becoming dominated by renewables, the report details important industry implications. These include:

  • Substantial opportunities for those parties involved in solar and wind generation 
  • Massive expansion and reinforcement of transmission and distribution networks 
  • Further need for implementation of energy efficiency technology 
  • Acceleration of the electric vehicle revolution 
  • The energy transition is fast, but not fast enough to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement
