Equinor Energy Perspectives 2019
Energy Perspectives provides a broad perspective on macroeconomics and global energy markets to 2050, analyzing relevant trends, climate policy impacts, energy sources, sectors, and regions across three very different scenarios – Reform, Renewal and Rivalry.
Recent indicators show diverging paths in energy market developments in terms of economic growth, energy demand, energy efficiency, technology development and geopolitics. Two of the scenarios illustrate where the world may move if current trends continue, while Renewal shows where the world needs to move to limit global warming to well below 2°C. This year, Renewal is complemented with two sensitivities: (1) the IPCC’s 1.5° report; and (2) the effects of delayed policy action to 2025. This event is made possible by general funding to CSIS and the Energy & National Security Program.
