EnerOutlook 2019

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.

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 fossil fuel prices;
  • On CO2 emissions;
  • On energy and climate indicators;
  • Covering the whole world with 7 regional groupings;
  • Including data for the period 2015-2040.

Free data export in *.xls files for advanced analysis.
Total primary energy consumption 2040

US$50bn in investment non-consistent with Paris agreement since 2018

According to the Carbon Tracker Initiative (UK), since 2018, major oil & gas companies have approved around US$50bn of new investments that will not be able to thrive if countries comply with the Paris Agreement's goal to keep global temperature rise below 1.5-2˚C. A further US$21bn non-Paris-aligned project pipeline is set to be approved by end-2019.


Uranium production will need to double by 2040 to supply reactors

According to a recent report, the World Nuclear Association foresees that the world's uranium resources are enough to respond to the nuclear reactor's demand beyond 2040. The current level of uranium production, which fell 14% between 2016 and 2018 (to 53,498 tU) is preventing further development of the technology. The global uranium production is expected to decrease between 2035-2040, when 25% of mines will reach lifespan, to as low as 48,100 tU (2040). Eventually, new supply will be required which means the industry needs to at least double projected primary uranium production by 2040 (including current, idled, under development and planned prospective projects).


Switzerland could produce 37.4 TWh of hydropower by 2035

A new study published by the Swiss government considers it is realistic for Switzerland to generate 37,400 GWh from hydro by 2035, up from the theoretical hydropower generation of 35,990 GWh on 1 January 2019. However, to meet the target defined by the Energy Act, an average net development of 85 GWh/year is required in the coming years (it has been 87 GWh/year since 2011).


Energy demand in the Philippines could increase 4-fold by 2040

According to the Socioeconomic Planning Secretary of the Philippines, energy demand in the Philippines could increase by an average 5.7%/year through 2040 under a high economic growth scenario, resulting in a four-fold increase in energy consumption. Indeed, energy consumption in the archipelago has been rising rapidly since 2010 by over 5%/year through 2017.
