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.

The United States plans to retire 9.1 GW of installed capacity in 2021

According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), the country will retire 9.1 GW of power generation capacity in 2021, including 5.1 GW of nuclear (56%) and 2.7 GW of coal-fired power plants (30%). More than 800 MW of oil-fired capacity, 253 MW of gas-fired capacity and a 143 MW biomass-fired power plant are also expected to retire in 2021.


China expects crude oil and gas production to increase in 2020

According to the National Energy Administration (NEA), China’s crude oil production is expected to increase by 1.6% to over 194 Mt (3.87 mb/d) in 2020, following a jump in output from the onshore Changqing and Tarim oilfields, as well as in Bohai Bay. In addition, the country’s natural gas production should increase by 7% to 186 bcm in 2020. Earlier in December 2020, the State Council Information Office has released a white paper on the country’s energy development and major policies and measures for energy reform, which plans to lift foreign investment restriction on coal, oil, gas, power generation, and new energy businesses during the 14th five-year plan period between 2021-2025.


Australia expected to meet its 2030 climate target

According to the government, Australia’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are forecast to reach 478 MtCO2eq in 2030, which would be 22% below 2005 levels; under a scenario aligned with the Technology Investment Roadmap, GHG emissions should decrease to 436 Mt CO2-e in 2030, i.e. 29% below 2005 levels. Australia would then meet its target to reduce its GHG emissions by 26% to 28% by 2030 compared to 2005. Australia’s abatement task to meet the 2030 target should range between 56 Mt CO2eq - corresponding to a 26% reduction - and 123 Mt CO2eq, i.e. a 28% reduction over the 2021-2030 period. This should be achieved thanks to new measures aimed at accelerating the development of low emissions technologies included in the 2020-2021 budget, the steady growth in renewable power generation, and temporary effects on the COVID-19 pandemic.


US EIA expects a 11% decrease in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2020

According to US Energy Information Administration, the country’s crude oil production is expected to fall by 910,000 bbl/d in 2020 to 11.3 mb/d (-7.4% compared with the 2019 average). The previous forecast anticipated an 860,000 bbl/d drop. In 2021, US crude oil output is expected to decline further (-1.8%) to reach 11.1 mb/d. US petroleum and other liquid fuel consumption should decline by 2.38 mb/d to 18.16 mb/d in 2020.
