Press Release: Commentary – Frontier electric technologies in industry

In WEO 2018 IEA introduced the Future is Electric Scenario to test what could happen to electricity demand if economic opportunities for electrification were maximized. We found that industry had the potential to account for a major portion of increased electrification globally, rising from 27% today to 37% in 2040 – an increase of almost 1 700 TWh. This growth would take place across a wide range in various sub-sectors, from 13% in cement production to 60% in aluminium.
