Global Energy Outlook

Global Energy Outlook (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 projections:
  • On total primary and final consumption, with details for electricity and renewable energies;
  • 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 up to 2050.

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

EDF's French nuclear output in 2022 could be 17-22% lower than in 2021

EDF has lowered its French nuclear output estimate for 2022 from 295-315 TWh to 280-300 TWh due to inspections for stress corrosion at twelve of its reactors. Estimates for 2023 are unchanged at 300-330 TWh. Previously, in February 2022, EDF reduced its French nuclear output estimate from 300-330 TWh to 295-315 TWh. In early 2022, EDF already revised downward its nuclear output estimate for 2022 from 330-360 TWh to 300-330 TWh and then to 295-315 TWh due to extended reactor outages.


Colombia plans to add 3 GW of capacity in 2022, including 1.5 GW of solar

The Colombian national power grid operator XM Compania de Expertos en Mercados plans to incorporate more than 3 GW of new power capacity in 2022, including 50% of solar, 22% of hydropower, 19% of thermal and 9% of wind.

Colombia's installed power capacity has increased by 44% since 2010 and reached 19.6 GW at the end of 2020, with hydroelectricity accounting for 67% (13.2 GW) The solar and wind capacity is limited (115 MW for solar and 563 MW for wind in 2020).


NEA expects 12% increase in China's power generation in 2022

The National Energy Administration (NEA) of China has released its annual energy industry guide and anticipates a 4.2% growth in domestic gas production in 2022; this would be nearly half the 8.2% growth in production posted in 2021. In addition, crude oil is also expected to increase. According to the NEA, domestic power generation should rise by 12% in 2022 (after a 10% growth in 2021), with wind and solar accounting for 12.2% of the power mix (up from 11% in 2021). China will pursue its strategy to reduce the share of coal in its energy consumption, aiming to reach 17.3% of non-fossil energies in its total energy consumption in 2022, up from 16% in 2020.


Brazil's oil output expected to increase by 10% in 2022

Brazil forecasts an increase in its oil production by around 300,000 bbl/d in 2022 (+10% compared to 2021). The country's oil output reached 3 mb/d in 2021. Most of the domestic production was ensured by the Brazilian national oil and gas company Petrobras, which produced 2.77 mboe/d of oil and gas in 2021 (-2.5% compared to 2020), including 2.22 mb/d of oil and NGL (-2.2%) and exceeded its 2021 targets. Pre-salt production accounted for 70% of Petrobras’s total output in 2021.
