Navigate the energy transition
with our GEP App.

We are helping clients navigate the energy transition. In our projections, we bring together the views of hundreds of McKinsey experts worldwide, with deep expertise across the broad range of sectors and geographies. The Global Energy Perspective (GEP) App is accessible online, providing transparency on the many inputs and assumptions that are underlying our perspective.

KEY FINDINGS FROM OUR GLOBAL ENERGY PERSPECTIVE

80

%

of the global net capacity additions of generation between now and 2050 will be renewable energy sources




~20

MMb/d

of oil demand in 2050 will be displaced because of the electrification of cars, buses, and trucks in leading regions

2049

date

gas will not surpass coal in terms of total generation until 2049, by which point solar will be the largest source of power

ENERGY DEMAND MODELS

Global Energy Demand Model

A bottom-up energy demand model projecting the evolution of energy systems by country (for 145 countries), by sector (for 28 sectors), and by fuel (for 55 energy types). For each sector and country, a detailed methodology defines how fundamental drivers such as economic growth and population expansion, and key developments such as efficiency improvements and fuel shifts drive the evolution of energy demand.
