Reaching net zero by 2050
This year’s report includes a “Net Zero” scenario which investigates what a potential route to carbon neutrality looks across all segments of road transport by 2050. It also includes five thematic highlights on important emerging topic areas:
- The supply and demand dynamics for battery metals from now to 2030
- Reshaping mobility demand through modal shifts
Size of the electric vehicle market opportunity between today and 2050 in the Economic Transition Scenario
Peak year for road transport oil demand
Increase in global electricity demand in 2050 caused by electrifying almost all of road transport in the Net Zero Scenario
