    October 14, 2013 (World Energy Council)

    “The world is set to face several significant challenges in balancing global energy needs in addressing the energy trilemma over the next four decades, according to World Energy Scenarios: Composing energy futures to 2050, by the World Energy Council…Under [the Jazz scenario], total primary energy supply could increase by 61% by 2050, while under [the Symphony scenario] these supplies could rise by only 27%, thus highlighting the impact [of policy]…[R]enewable energy sources in the global energy mix will record the biggest growth to reach 20% in Jazz and 30% in Symphony by 2050…[but] fossil fuels will remain the dominant resource…accounting for 77% in Jazz and 59% in Symphony…By 2050, the use of solar for electricity generation is set to increase by up to 225 times over 2010 levels…[with] between US$2,950 billion and US$9,660 billion of investment in solar, representing the largest potential investment area of any renewable energy resource…[T]he world will need to invest from US$19 trillion in Jazz to over US$25 trillion in Symphony for electricity generation alone [through 2050]…” click here for more
