Energy Perspectives is an independent report prepared by Equinor analysts, describing three possible development paths for the world economy, international energy markets and energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. This year's report adjusts for last year's events in the climate and energy fields, as well as technology development in various areas, both in renewable energy and demand in the energy markets.
The report is based on models and frameworks that the company uses in connection with long-term analyses of the energy markets and is intended to foster greater understanding of uncertainty in the long term and how different forces can influence this uncertainty.
Energy Perspectives has become an important reference in international talks on energy and climate-change issues. Each year the team behind the report is invited to international meetings and conferences to present their perspectives.
The report addresses key issues related to developments in the global energy market. How much will energy demand increase in the years to come? Is the world undergoing an energy transformation? Where is there a need for new investment to ensure energy access? What must be done to reach the climate targets set in the Paris agreement in 2015? Is the world on the right track? And how is global energy supply and greenhouse gas emissions affected by geopolitics?
