Cooperation: Ecofys, counterparts from the world regions
Project duration: February 2006 to December 2006 (completed)
Contact: Dr. Wolfram Krewitt
The project develops global energy scenarios, based on the assessment of energy demand and supply patterns and the renewable energy potentials available in ten world regions. The normative scenarios are developed in a back-casting process, driven by ambitious CO2-reduction targets and the world-wide phasing-out of nuclear energy. The project develops energy demand projections based on key macroeconomic indicators, and elaborates supply scenarios for the heat and electricity sector. The mobilisation of renewable energy technologies takes into account 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 in-depth discussions with counterparts from the ten world regions on specific regional energy policy framing conditions, and with the renewable energy industry on the expected market development in the different technology branches.
