Global prospects for fossil fuels

Global prospects for fossil fuels

RES Policy Pathways | RES Policy Challenges

This Towards2030 Issue Paper seeks to shed light on some key aspects determining the global prospects for fossil fuels and their repercussions for EU renewables deployment and policy making towards 2030. It reviews IEA’s central scenario projections of global energy developments towards 2030 and beyond, focusing on the role of fossil fuels. As such, the larger the anticipated prospective role of fossil energy, the less scope might be factored in by stakeholders to remain for the roll-out of renewable energy. Public energy policies and private investments in energy infrastructure are influenced by central scenario projections in the IEA’s World Energy Outlook (WEO) publications. Therefore, these projections are given special attention in this paper’s assessment of the future role of fossil fuels.
