Nexans Climate Day 2020 fun facts

The electricity demand is expected to rise by more than 40% over the next 20 years

Innovation holds the key to delivering the European Green Deal.

The ambition is huge. By 2050, Europe intends to be the world’s first climate-neutral continent. To achieve this, renewable generation will need to replace the electricity currently produced using fossil fuels. This must be achieved while catering for a rapid increase in global electricity demand, which is expected to rise by more than 40% over the next 20 years.

By 2030, an additional 1.8 billion people will need to have access to electricity
More than 100 million European households will switch from fossil fuels to electric heating by 2050

The impact of Covid-19 on electricity consumption is unprecedented. Lockdown saw demand fall by 20% or more in some countries*. The short-term outlook remains challenging: global demand is expected to fall 5% in 2020* – the biggest drop since the 1930s.
