Image of Sverre Alvik, DNV, Programme Director for the Energy Transition
Sverre Alvik is Programme Director for the Energy Transition research programme in DNV and Project Director for DNV’s Energy Transition Outlook. He has a Master’s degree in Naval Architecture from NTNU in Norway from 1997 and more than 20 years’ experience from working in DNV. His main experience is with the Energy and the Maritime industry, where he has worked with strategy and politics, marketing and sales, project management and research & innovation, and where he also has written a number of papers and presentations. The last six years he has been heading up DNV’s global research work on the energy transition.

Highlights from the report:

  • The economic and behavourial impact of Covid-19 has reduced the amount of energy required by humanity. In 2050, the world will use 8% less energy than previously forecasted.
  • Oil demand is unlikely to recover to previous levels and 2019 will go down as the year of peak CO2 emissions, five years earlier than the pre-pandemic forecast.
  • In the space of a generation, renewables will gain parity with fossil fuels in the energy mix. 2032 is the year of peak energy – the first time in post-industrial times that humanity will start using less energy, despite the global economy growing.

DNV’s annual Energy Transition Outlook, now in its fourth edition, presents the results from our independent model of the world’s energy system. It covers the period through to 2050 and forecasts the energy transition globally and in 10 world regions. The report is intended as a strategy-forming tool for analysts and decision makers within the industry and other stakeholders.
