Unparalleled insight into the energy transition

Recent years have brought significant structural shifts to energy-demand drivers. Challenges such as slowing global economic growth, stricter greenhouse-gas-emission targets, unpredictable oil-and-gas geopolitics, and numerous technological breakthroughs have threatened existing business models. In response, decision makers across a range of industries are compelled to rethink their investment strategy, manage risks, and capture growth opportunities. Our team of energy-demand experts and our suite of integrated models provide a unique perspective on the dynamic energy transition, including specific insights on the transport, industrial, buildings, and power sectors.

Our tools

Global Energy Demand Model

The Global Energy Demand Model is a bottom-up model projecting the evolution of energy systems by country (for 145 countries), by sector (for 28 sectors), and by fuel (for 55 energy types) to 2050.

GEP Power Model

The GEP Power Model captures key dynamics and tipping points at a local level to project the speed and disruptive nature of the energy transition from the perspective of power systems.

Our research

Global Energy Perspective 2019

The Global Energy Perspective Reference Case provides our consensus view on how energy demand will evolve to 2050.

Global Energy Perspective: Accelerated Transition

Our outlook reviews eight potential shifts that could accelerate the energy transition—from faster uptake of electric vehicles to accelerated cost reduction for renewables—and the impact each shift could have on annual oil, gas, coal, and power demand to 2050.
