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.

China plans to increase its oil and gas production in 2020

In 2020, China intends to raise its crude oil production by 1% and its gas production by 4.3%. It will focus on four key hydrocarbon production areas to reach this target, namely the Bohai Bay in northern China (offshore production), the Sichuan province, the Erdos Basin and the Xinjiang region (western China). China also aims to promote new energies, including renewables, fuel ethanol and coal-to-liquids (CTL) to replace conventional hydrocarbons, according to the National Energy Administration. In addition, the country plans to have 900 GW of installed non-fossil fuel power generation capacity in 2020 and to limit the share of coal in its primary energy mix to 57.5%.


Denmark must implement extra measures to achieve its GHG emissions target

According to the Danish Energy Agency (DEA), without new measures, Denmark will fall short of meeting its Climate Act target to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 70% by 2030 compared with 1990 levels, reducing emissions by only 44% by 2030. In December 2019, the Danish parliament adopted a new Climate Act with a legally binding objective to reduce GHG emissions by 70% by 2030 (compared to the 1990 level). Consequently, Denmark will have to cut GHG emissions by an additional 26 points, or 20 MtCO2eq, by 2030.


Indonesia anticipates a 5% decline in coal production in 2020

According to the Indonesian government, the country is expected to produce 550 Mt of coal (down from 582 Mt in 2019), while exports should reach 435 Mt, which is 40 Mt higher than the previous target of 395 Mt but will remain lower than 2019 exports (459 Mt). As domestic coal demand is forecasted to fall from 133 Mt in 2019 to 100 Mt in 2020, Indonesia intends to increase its coal exports to Vietnam, Pakistan and Bangladesh.


Indonesia intends to reach oil product self-sufficiency by 2026

According to the Indonesian government, Indonesia’s oil product demand is expected to rise by 3.2%/year to 1.47 mb/d by 2026 (+12%). Meanwhile, the country’s refined product output should rise by around 70%, to reach 1.5 mb/d by 2026. Thus, Indonesia would be self-sufficient for oil products as of 2026, instead of its 2023 target.
