primary energy consumption
Taking into account the assumptions discussed above, the resulting primary energy consumption under the Energy [R]evolution scenario is shown in Figure 6.49. Compared to the Reference scenario, overall energy demand will be reduced by 16% in 2050. Around 61% of the remaining demand will be covered by renewable energy sources.
The advanced version phases out coal and oil about 10 to 15 years faster than the basic scenario.This made possible by leapfrogging directly to a renewable energy future with financial help from industrialised countries.This leads to a renewable energy share of 57% in 2030 and 79% in 2050. Nuclear energy is phased out in both Energy [R]evolution scenarios just after 2020.
