ABOUT THE REPORT
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 scenarios in Energy Perspectives build on assumptions for economic development, energy intensity and energy mix in the period up to 2050.
