The residential/commercial sector is the largest power consumer and will remain so through 2030, despite demand remaining relatively flat. Nuclear will continue to be the primary fuel for power generation and renewables will be the fastest-growing supply source. Coal output will decline through the forecast and be completely phased out by 2029; oil will also be largely phased out with minimal capacity maintained for periods of high demand or in the event of outages

Due to their sensitivity to political events and the global economy, energy demand and trade remain extremely volatile. The rapidly changing cost environment for hydrocarbon production and renewable energy, combined with energy policy changes, means the fuel mix in energy markets can be unpredictable at best. Further complicating the outlook is the transition and pace of the energy-intensive developing world from industrial to services-based economic growth, supporting the growing need for power generation.
