Assessment of Future Energy Demand: A Methodological Review Providing Guidance to Developers and Users of Energy Models and Scenarios

This Concept Note reviews the main types of energy scenarios and models currently used to anticipate energy demand and inform energy transitions. It highlights their limitations, in particular the uncertainties associated with assessing future demand, and underlines emerging trends that incorporate insight provided by behavioral economics. If the odds of achieving the goals of current energy transitions are to be improved, it will be crucial to improve energy scenarios and models.
