Energy Transition Outlook 2021

Financing the energy transition

The report focuses on the financial opportunities and challenges for financiers, policymakers, developers, and energy companies:

  • An affordable transition – considering whether a Paris-compliant transition is affordable, and what may be needed to mobilize and redirect capital
  • Accelerating the transition – examining the role of financial markets, policy, and regulation, and how to get capital to flow to where it can have the most impact on emissions
  • Ensuring a just transition – exploring the importance of balancing sustainable priorities, ensuring co-benefits, and building climate resilience.
The report combines DNV’s independent energy forecast to 2050 with views from a diverse set of leaders in the energy and finance sectors.
