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.

India targets 220 GW of renewable capacity by 2022 and 450 GW by 2030

The renewable energy capacity in India, which exceeded 130 GW (including hydropower and biomass) at the end of 2019, is expected to increase to over 220 GW by 2022, according to the government. This will require an annual investment of US$20bn. The previous objective was to increase the renewable capacity to 227 GW by 2022. The government aims to further develop renewables to reaches 450 GW of renewables 2030.


Canadian crude oil production is expected to peak in 2039

The Canadian Energy Regulator (CER) has released its Energy Supply and Demand Projections to 2050 (EF2020) forecasts, including a "Reference scenario" that implies no additional effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions and steady demand for fossil fuels (traditional baseline projection) and a "Evolving scenario", which assumes continuing the historical trend of increasing global action on climate change.


Enel (Italy) plans to invest €70bn in renewables over 2021-2030

The Italian energy group Enel has announced plans to invest €190bn in the 2021-2030 period, €150bn of which will be invested through the "Ownership business model". Nearly €70bn will be invested to support the development of 75 GW of additional installed capacity in the company's portfolio, while another €70bn will be deployed in infrastructure and networks, to address quality and resiliency improvements, new connections, and infrastructure digitalization.


Algeria's gas exports are expected to decrease by nearly 5% in 2020

According to the Ministry of Energy of Algeria, the country's total gas production is forecast to decline by 1% and gas exports are expected to decrease by 4.7% in 2020 to 41 bcm, down from nearly 43 bcm in 2019, due to a lower gas demand in Europe and the competition from cheaper US LNG supplies. In the long run, Algeria's natural gas exports should decrease by more than 40% to 2025 (26 bcm) due to stagnant production, rising domestic demand and insufficient investment.
