Low Emissions Scenario 2023

A unique look at the energy world

The stakes for the energy transition are higher than ever, and to reach net zero by 2050, we will need more of everything – and faster.  
Developed by analysts leveraging the knowledge of 50 internal experts modelling power markets in detail across 21 countries, Statkraft’s Low Emissions Scenario is an optimistic but realistic assessment of global energy trends up to 2050.  
In a first for the report, this year’s Low Emissions Scenario features two additional scenarios: Clean Tech Rivalry towards Net Zero and The Delayed Transition
