A new presentation of energy data for a 2050 scenario

Posted on March 1, 2015 in Future of Energy

The analysis below and proposed scenario for 2050 are based upon International Energy Agency (I.E.A.) data and likely unit costs, on proofed technologies and on usual hypotheses for world population and energy needs in 2050.

Suggestion for a world agreement on energy

Posted on March 1, 2015 in Future of Energy

by F. Lempérière (HydroCoop) – February 2015 The suggestion below is based upon “A new presentation of energy data” as annexed, upon proofed technologies, and usual hypotheses for population growth and relevant energy needs. Some data may be underlined: –   Presently 7 billion people have as average a yearly income of 9 000 $ and emit 5 t of CO² per capita. But 3 billion people in North countries (including China) have an income and CO² emission per capita fivefold these of 4 billion of South countries where most people emit less than 2 t of CO². –   For limiting reasonably...

Some comments on the future world energy

Posted on July 16, 2013 in Future of Energy

The key problem is the possibility to get mid century the energy necessary for the world development at acceptable cost and impacts with 70 or 80% of renewable energies (essentially solar, wind, hydro and biomass). In 2050 a population of 9 billion (7 in sunny countries) will have probably a gross product 3 or 4 times the present one with a reduced energy intensity; the need of energy may be the double of the present one.
