More series

The series contained in this interface are a short excerpt of the data available in Enerdata‘s EnerFuture service providing:
  • More series like end-user prices, electricity generation and capacities by energy source, etc.
  • More scenarios: whereas the data in EnerOutlook corresponds to the EnerBlue scenario (NDC achievement), two other scenarios are provided in EnerFuture: EnerBase (current policies) and EnerGreen (2°C scenario).
  • Detailed breakdown: very insightful details are provided in EnerFuture, like a complete disaggregation of all series by country, by sector and by energy source/vector; e.g. final consumption of gas in the US buildings sector, electricity price in the Chinese industry, solar capacity for power generation in India, CO2 emissions from the industry in Europe and by Member State, etc.
  • Full MS-Excel export capability: in EnerFuture, the user can pick-up the relevant forecasts necessary for further analysis and export these in a user-friendly prepared MS-Excel sheet, either by series or by country.
  • More analytical indicators: incl. macroeconomic indicators (economic growth, population, GDP per capita), demand indicators (primary energy intensity, per capita energy and electricity consumption), CO2 indicators (emissions per inhabitant, CO2 intensity of power generation, carbon price, CO2 intensity to GDP), renewables indicators (share in primary and final consumption, share in electricity generation), etc.
  • MAC curves (MACCs): provide both the level of emissions and the level of mitigated/reduced emissions that can be reached at a given carbon price for a given year, a given country and in a given sector. These levels are derived from our standard scenarios which are explicitly detailed. MACCs are provided for a wide range of carbon prices.
  • A Country Snapshot: pick up your country(ies) and explore the key trends of the future energy system through intuitive graphs and tables. Fully exportable to MS-Excel.

Indonesia considers 40 GW of nuclear capacity in 2060

Indonesia is considering developping nuclear as the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) reviews the General Plan for the Provision of Electricity (RUPTL). The first nuclear reactor of the country could be commissioned by at least 2049 but development could be accelerated to reach 40 GW of nuclear capacity in 2060.


Brazil expects to raise US$116bn in 10 years from subsalt oil sales

Pré-Sal Petróleo (PPSA), the Brazilian state-owned company managing the government's share of oil produced in subsalt areas, estimates the required investments in the Brazilian Pre-salt Polygon at US$99bn until 2031, of which US$33bn would be invested in production platforms, US$37bn in wells and US$29bn in subsea systems. Moreover, it estimates that crude oil production under production sharing contracts could reach 8.2 mbl over the next ten years, of which 1.5 mbl would be owned to the government. In 2031, the average production of oil contracts would stand at 3.5 mb/d, i.e. 2/3 of the expected national production. Consequently, the Brazilian government could raise as much as US$116bn from the sale of the government's oil until 2031; in addition, the Production Sharing contracts should generate US$92bn in royalties and US$77bn in Corporate Income Tax and Social Contribution on Net Income, raising total revenues for the Brazilian state of US$285bn over 10 years. 


Iraq aims to stop gas flaring by 2027

The Ministry of Oil of Iraq aims to stop gas flaring at its oil fields by 2027, as the country is the second largest gas flaring country after Russia, with around 40% of its gas production flared. Iraq is seeking help from international oil companies (IOCs) to develop non-associated gas from the Akkas and Mansuriyah fields, and to implement various gas capture projects. The country has signed US$27bn of projects with TotalEnergies, including a US$2bn gas gathering network and treatment project, the Ar-Ratawi project, which will have a gas capture capacity of 6.2 bcm/year and will produce 12,000 bbl/d of condensate to be used in the domestic market. As well, the state-owned gas company South Gas Co. has joined forces with Baker Hughes to develop a 2.1 bcm/year gas recovery project in southern Iraq. Recovering flared gas will help Iraq reduce the use of oil for power generation and cut its reliance on Iranian imports. The cost of gas produced at the Ar-Ratawi project is estimated at US$1.5-2/MMBtu, compared to US$8/MMBtu for Iranian gas imports.


The US plans to add 27 GW of new gas-fired power capacity by 2025

According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), over 27 GW of new gas-fired power capacity should be added by 2025 in the United States, raising the installed gas-fired capacity by 6%. Most of the new capacities will be built near the major shale gas production zones, in the Appalachia region (Utica and Marcellus shale plays), in Texas (Permian Basin, Eagle Ford and Haynesville) and in Florida. Indeed, 43% of the planned capacity will be built in States with pipeline access to gas from the Marcellus and Utica shale play: 3.8 GW in Illinois, 3.2 GW in Michigan, 2.9 GW in Ohio and 1.9 GW in Pennsylvania. Moreover, 2.8 GW of new gas-fired capacity should be added in Texas, the largest gas producer in the country. In addition, Florida, which has a marginal gas production but a growing regional gas pipeline network, plans to add 3.2 GW of new gas-fired capacity by 2025.
