The Outlook for Energy: A view to 2040 | Digital Sustainability |

In 2040, what types of energy will the world use, and how much? How will new technologies, efficiencies and policies impact the market?

The electricity generation sector is essential to meeting modern energy needs. Utilities and other electricity producers transform different types of primary energy – everything from natural gas to coal to wind and hydroelectric power – into electricity to be used in homes and businesses. Through 2040, global demand for electricity will continue to rise steeply, as the fuels used for electricity generation continue to shift to lower-carbon sources, such as natural gas, nuclear and renewables.
