Gas, renewables and CCS must work together to secure a rapid energy transition, DNV GL reports

September 18, 2019

DNV GL’s 2019 Energy Transition Outlook provides an independent forecast of developments in the world energy mix to 2050. By this time, gas will account for nearly 30% of the global energy supply, providing the world with a base of secure and affordable energy, and with manufacturing feedstock.

DNV GL’s Outlook suggests there is no single pathway to a decarbonised energy mix. A combination of energy sources – primarily gas and renewables – will be the quickest route to delivering a supply of affordable, decarbonised energy in the lead-up to mid-century. Gas will increasingly complement variable renewables, meeting demand in peak periods such as winter in colder climates.
