Global Energy Perspective 2018

Our Global Energy Perspective summarizes our fundamental energy demand outlook and shows projections of how the energy transition will unfold over the next decades.

McKinsey Energy Insights has released the 2018 Reference Case from its Global Energy Perspective on long-term energy demand. Global CO₂ emissions are expected to plateau by 2030 due to major shifts in the global energy landscape, particularly related to electric vehicles and renewable energy sources. However, increased global energy demand means that emissions will remain at more than double the level required for a 2 degrees Celsius warming pathway.
