Energy Demand Intelligence (EDI) is a specialist unit within Energy Insights that focuses on forecasting the evolution of energy demand until 2050.

To create our perspectives, we leverage the best of McKinsey, including a global network of energy experts and data analysts, the McKinsey global knowledge institute that produced more than 5,000 research documents, and McKinsey’s global practices, such as Transport & Logistics, Oil & Gas, Electric Power & Natural Gas and Chemicals.

This knowledge pool, combined with our proprietary bottom-up modeling methodology, means that you can consult, question and modify fundamental assumptions in our Global Energy Demand model to enrich your own scenarios.

Our expertise allows you to answer the most specific questions about energy demand, and therefore helps you rethink your business model with better investment, risk management, and growth strategies.


Energy Demand Model

The Energy Demand Model is a proprietary tool developed by Energy Insights with collaboration from the wider McKinsey community. It projects the expected evolution of energy demand by sector and energy source up to 2050 based on macro-economic drivers, such as population and GDP growth, as well as sector-specific drivers.
