EnerOutlook 2050

EnerOutlook is a free online interactive data software, allowing to browse data through intuitive maps and graphs, for a visual analysis of the expected long-term trends in the energy industry.
These can be viewed globally and by world region. The interface provides robust forecasts on energy supply and demand as well as information on fossil fuel prices, renewable energies and CO2 emissions.

The energy scenarios presented in the following pages are the results of Enerdata annual update of its forecasting exercise named EnerFuture. The scenario design and outputs do not consider the latest events related to the global Covid-19 sanitary crisis and its consequences on the economy. An analysis of these impacts and of potential economic recovery plans will be at our agenda in the coming months.

This application is an excerpt of the complete EnerFuture global forecast service based on the POLES model.

Access to projections:
  • On total primary and final consumption, with details for electricity and natural gas;
  • On CO2 emissions;
  • On energy and climate indicators;
  • Covering the whole world with 7 regional groupings;
  • With a new tab for snapshots on specific countries;
  • Including data for the period 2015-2050.

Free data export in *.xls files for advanced analysis.

India expects to reach 70 GW of hydropower capacity by 2030

According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) of India, the hydropower capacity in the country is expected to reach 70,000 MW by 2030. At the end of 2019, the total hydropower capacity stood at over 50 GW - including 45.4 GW of large hydropower capacity (above 10 MW) - and more than 12.7 GW are currently under construction, with another 8 GW expected to start construction before the end of the year.


Algeria aims to develop 4 GW of solar capacity by 2024

The Algerian government plans to develop several solar power plants with a total capacity of 4 GW over the 2020-2024 period, at a cost of US$3.2bn to US$3.6bn. Thanks to the so-called TAFOUK1 project, Algeria expects to meet growing domestic for electricity and to export electricity.


India targets 16% increase in coal production in 2020-2021 to 700 Mt

The Secretary of Coal of India has confirmed that India's coal production would rise to 700 Mt in the current fiscal year (April 2020-March 2021), corresponding to a 16% annual increase, despite the abundance of fuel stock (75 Mt at Coal India Ltd's mines and nearly 45 Mt of stocks at power plants) and reduced demand from the power sector. The government bets on rising electricity demand when summer comes and aims to raise production before the monsoon, which usually decreases coal production.


German gas TSOs present a 10-year €8.5bn investment plan

The Association of German Gas Transmission System (FNB) has launched a public consultation on its €8.5bn investment plan for gas grid expansion over the 2020-2030 period, with the objective to offer capacity for increased imports. The association, which regroups among others Gascade Gastransport, Ontras Gastransport and Open Grid Europe, intends to add 1,746 km of new gas pipelines and compressor capacity of 405 MW over the next decade. According to the FNB, the gas supply capacity needs to be increased in Baden-Wuerttemberg, as the region will become more dependant on gas-fired power plants due to the closure of nuclear and coal plants. In addition, major gas projects are outlined, such as the Eugal gas pipeline project connecting the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in northern Germany to the the Czech border and a couple of proposed LNG import terminals. The consultation is open until 29 May 2020.
