What role will fossil fuels play in the future?

The past year, Copenhagen Economics has worked to provide answers to this question and point out concrete implications for policy-makers, energy companies, and investors. We publish our key findings in a series of LinkedIn Pulse articles this week.

I'm curious - let me have a look at the first article in the series

“Fossil fuels will still provide 60% of energy in 2040, compared to 85% today, but the pattern of use will change, away from coal and towards gas, and increasingly concentrated in industry.”

    New study: EU exports increased by EUR 1 billion due to trade agreements

    The EU trade agreements with Mexico, South Korea, and Switzerland have increased EU exports by more than EUR 1 billion and have raised value added in the agri-food sector by 600 mn. EUR.

    This increased export has supported almost 20,000 jobs in the agri-food sector and an additional 7,700 jobs in other sectors related to agri-food production and export. The trade agreements have also increased EU imports and given EU consumers and processors better access to agri-food products at lower prices.

    Today, Commissioner Phil Hogan presents the results at a press conference in Brussels. Managing Economist, Eva Rytter Sunesen, will be present to answer technical questions related to the study.

    What role will fossil fuels play as the world transitions from the current energy system to one consistent with meeting the objectives of the 2016 Paris agreement? This is one of the main questions posed by the Energy Transitions Commission, a broad coalition of stakeholders from the public, private and social sectors.
