DNV GL, in line with the Energy Transition Outlook (ETO), published the Maritime Forecast to 2050, providing an independent forecast of the maritime energy future and examining how the energy transition will affect the industry.
In its recently launched Energy Outlook, BP forecasts the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier increases significantly in the two of its three scenarios, as the world transitions to a lower carbon energy system. The hydrogen can be used either directly or combined with (bio)carbon or nitrogen to make it easier to transport.
In the main scenarios of this year’s BP Energy Outlook, global energy demand continues to grow for at least part of the period to 2050. However, over this time, the structure of energy demand fundamentally shifts, with a declining role for fossil fuels offset by an increasing share for renewable energy and a growing role for electricity. Decisive policy measures, such as significant increases in carbon prices, are needed to deliver a lasting reduction in emissions from energy use.
