Download the EnerOutlook 2050 presentation to have an overview of the main outcomes of our central scenario EnerBlue in various world regions.
The presentation includes details on the underlying assumptions of this scenario, along with insightful graphs and learnings on the future of energy systems through 2050.
According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) of India, the hydropower capacity in the country is expected to reach 70,000 MW by 2030. At the end of 2019, the total hydropower capacity stood at over 50 GW - including 45.4 GW of large hydropower capacity (above 10 MW) - and more than 12.7 GW are currently under construction, with another 8 GW expected to start construction before the end of the year.
The Algerian government plans to develop several solar power plants with a total capacity of 4 GW over the 2020-2024 period, at a cost of US$3.2bn to US$3.6bn. Thanks to the so-called TAFOUK1 project, Algeria expects to meet growing domestic for electricity and to export electricity.
The Secretary of Coal of India has confirmed that India's coal production would rise to 700 Mt in the current fiscal year (April 2020-March 2021), corresponding to a 16% annual increase, despite the abundance of fuel stock (75 Mt at Coal India Ltd's mines and nearly 45 Mt of stocks at power plants) and reduced demand from the power sector. The government bets on rising electricity demand when summer comes and aims to raise production before the monsoon, which usually decreases coal production.
The Association of German Gas Transmission System (FNB) has launched a public consultation on its €8.5bn investment plan for gas grid expansion over the 2020-2030 period, with the objective to offer capacity for increased imports. The association, which regroups among others Gascade Gastransport, Ontras Gastransport and Open Grid Europe, intends to add 1,746 km of new gas pipelines and compressor capacity of 405 MW over the next decade. According to the FNB, the gas supply capacity needs to be increased in Baden-Wuerttemberg, as the region will become more dependant on gas-fired power plants due to the closure of nuclear and coal plants. In addition, major gas projects are outlined, such as the Eugal gas pipeline project connecting the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in northern Germany to the the Czech border and a couple of proposed LNG import terminals. The consultation is open until 29 May 2020.
