Global energy outlook 2019: the next generation of energy

The global energy landscape has experienced substantial changes over the last 25 years, with much larger changes potentially in store in the future. This report provides an analysis of long-term energy projections from governmental, intergovernmental, and private organizations using a unique methodology that allows for “apples-to-apples” comparisons. These projections agree that—absent ambitious climate policies—global energy consumption will grow 20–30% or more through 2040 and beyond, led largely by fossil fuels.
