Global energy demand is expected to at least double by 2050 while the depletion of fossil energy sources continues. Symptoms of demand-supply imbalances are already being felt: oil and gas prices have tripled since the year 2002 ($ 20 per barrel) while production increase only 20 to 30 percent in the same period. The global warming is likely affect the production cost and the energy will be a global issues this century. Ecorys has supported decision makers with impact analysis, scenario planning, feasibility studies and policy making on these topics.
