First, lets take a sneak peek into the crystal ball

In 2050, carbon emissions have been falling steadily for
many years. Solar power is the world’s largest source of electricity. Wind is second. With hydropower coming in third. A cleaner energy system rules our new world, and an old acquaintance has emerged in a new guise. For reaching zero-emissions, green hydrogen has done wonders in the industrial and heavy transport sectors.

That, at least, is the picture painted by the Low Emissions Scenario and Mari Viddal, one of Statkraft’s leading experts on tomorrow’s energy systems.

For the sixth year in succession, Statkraft’s experts have gazed into the crystal ball and produced the Low Emissions Scenario report.

 
 

According to the experts,
we are moving towards a fundamentally different global energy situation with a newcomer wearing the power production crown.
