This short video from DNV-GL is a bold prediction of the long term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Among other things, DNV GL anticipates that 2019 was the year of peak CO2 emissions and that 2032 will be the year of peak energy consumption. They predict that half of new cars sold will be electric by 2032, while natural gas will still be the largest source of energy for some decades to come.
Say what you will, this is a provocative prognostication. You may want to check out DNV GL reports on which this short video is based. While it is difficult to swallow whole, it does serve as a warning that if we think that we will return to “normal” post pandemic, we should fasten our seat belts on the journey to a “new normal”.
