G7 calls for the end of the fossil fuel age

Report summary

On June 8th, the G7 agreed to phase out fossil fuels by the end of this century. Some have called this a 'historic turning point' for the world, but the key question remains if and how quickly the world could make such a colossal transition. To help answer this question, Wood Mackenzie looks at key signposts which indicate the world is already fundamentally changing how we produce and consume energy. Regardless of government policy, are we already on a path to the end of the fossil fuel age?
