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 this service/file correspond to the EnerBlue scenario (NDC achievement), two other scenarios are provided in EnerFuture: EnerBase (baseline with lack of GHG mitigation support) and EnerGreen (achievement of the 2° objective).
  • 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 his 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).
  • 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 a baseline scenario which is 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 with help of intuitive graphs and tables. Fully exportable to MS-Excel.

Canada's crude oil production expected to increase by 1.3%/year by 2035

According to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), crude oil production in Canada is expected to increase by 1.27%/year until 2035. Production should increase by around 3%/year until 2021 before slowing down to +1%/year through 2035. The growth will come from Western Canada (+1.4%/year), whereas production should decline by 0.1%/year in eastern Canada. Oil sands, which account for 2/3 of the current production, will remain the primary driver for growth, despite a continuous decline in investments, due to regulatory and policy challenges: investments in oil sands is expected to decline for the fifth year in a row in 2019, from C$34bn (US$25bn) in 2014 to around C$12bn (US$9bn) in 2019. However, oil sands production is expected to surge by 46% by 2035. In the short term, oil sands production growth should average 4%/year over the 2019-2021 period.


China should spur global gas demand growth by 2024

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), global gas demand should continue to increase over the next five years, spurred by a dynamic demand in Asia and by the steady development of the international gas trade. Gas consumption would then rise by 10% between 2018 and 2024 (around +1.6%/year).


NNPC expects Nigeria's gas demand to increase fivefold by 2027

Nigeria's national oil and gas company Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) expects domestic gas demand in Nigeria to increase five-fold (+393%) within the next eight years. This surge in gas demand would mainly come from the power sector (additional demand of 5.7 bcf/d, i.e. nearly +59 bcm/year). Domestic supply should also increase, thanks to the "Seven Critical Gas Development Projects" (7CGDP), which would produce an additional 3.5 bcf/d (36 bcm/year) of gas in 2021. Gas supply will also be improved with the completion of the ELPS II (Escravos Lagos Pipeline System) looping and with the OB3 (Obiafu/Obrikom/Oben) project.


Renewables are becoming the cheapest source of new power generation

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), renewables are the cheapest energy sources for new power generation in most parts of the world. The cost of electricity generated from bioenergy, hydropower, geothermal, onshore and offshore wind power was estimated to be within the range of fossil-fuel-fired power generation costs over the 2010-2018 period. The global-weighted average cost of solar PV has also been competing with fossil power generation since 2014.
