global: 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 5.14. Compared to the Reference scenario, overall primary energy demand will be reduced by 40% in 2050.
The Energy [R]evolution scenario would even achieve a renewable energy share of 41% by 2030 and 82% by 2050. In this projection almost the entire global electricity supply, including the majority of the energy used in buildings and industry, would come from renewable energy sources. The transport sector, in particular aviation and shipping, would be the last sector to become fossil fuel free.
