Cooperation: seven2one, counterparts from the world regions
Project duration: January 2010 to June 2010 (completed)
Contact: Dr. Thomas Pregger, Dr. Sonja Simon, Dr. Tobias Naegler
The project develops a new update of the Energy [R]evolution scenario developed in 2006 and updated in 2008 (www.energyblueprint.info). The Energy [R]evolution scenario is a global energy scenario based on the assessment of energy demand and supply patterns and the renewable energy potentials available in ten world regions. The normative scenario is developed in a back-casting process, driven by ambitious CO2-reduction targets and the world-wide phasing-out of nuclear energy. The project elaborates supply scenarios for electricity, heat and transport based on renewable energy technologies and their respective technical potentials, actual costs, cost reduction potentials, and technology maturity. The time horizon of the scenarios is until the year 2050. Scenario development includes a review by counterparts from the ten world regions and discussions with the renewable energy industry on the expected market development in the different technology branches. The update of the Energy [R]evolution Scenario will take into account the most recent trends in global energy demand and supply and CO2 emissions. Compared to the previous version, it will provide in addition an advanced Energy [R]evolution Scenario demonstrating a deployment vision of renewable energy technologies. We will apply a new Mesap-PlaNet version as modelling tool with a multi-regional approach developed by seven2one information systems.
