Innovation is the reason why we are able to drill for oil miles under the ocean, turn gas into liquid and transport it from the desert to cities, and unlock new sources of energy such as biofuels from plants. Rising demand for energy, together with the need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, makes the role of innovation even more important.
The Scenarios team has developed two important long-term models of the world’s energy system. These help test, quantify and explore the ranges for future scenario stories. When viewed together, they offer a perspective on the current global energy landscape, as well as the ability to model a number of futures.
