Future Scenarios for Electricity
Electricity’s role in the global economy is set to increase, both as emerging economies continue to grow and expand access, and as the need to decarbonise energy systems drives an increase in electrification. Explore our latest long-term analysis to gain insight into potential future scenarios for electricity generation.
World Energy Outlook
Since 1993, IEA's World Energy Outlook (WEO) has provided medium- to long-term energy projections using the World Energy Model (WEM). The model is a large-scale simulation model designed to replicate how energy markets function and is the principal tool used to generate detailed sector-by-sector and region-by region projections for the WEO scenarios. Updated each year, the WEO highlights recent trends in energy and energy policies.
Energy Technology Perspectives Model
The IEA Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP) analysis offers a comprehensive, long-term view of energy system trends and technologies essential to meet goals for affordable, secure and low-carbon energy.
