primary energy consumption
Taking into account the assumptions discussed above, the resulting primary energy consumption under both Energy [R]evolution scenarios is shown in Figure 6.31. Compared to the Reference scenario, overall primary energy demand will be reduced by about 31%, and 34% in the advanced version, by 2050. Latin America’s primary energy demand will increase from 22,513 PJ/a to 28,339 PJ/a (27,311 PJ/a in the advanced version). Under the advanced Energy [R]evolution scenario a share of around 88% of the remaining energy demand will be covered by renewable sources.
