Abstract

This paper discusses possible technical, economical and geopolitical consequences of the new energy scenario. We analyze the net zero emissions global race with an emphasis on the role renewable energies will play in this phenomenon and COP26’s recent decisions on climate and energy transition. Using the semi-quantitative analysis method, the technological driving forces for future energy scenarios have been extrapolated. The technological developments and future scenarios regarding renewable energies are discussed by comparing two different driving forces. Furthermore, there will be a discussion of possible geopolitical consequences due to fossil fuels trade depletion during the energetic transition. Possible related consequences for MENA countries are investigated. In the last part, there will be a legal background analysis for electricity demand and renewable sources shift combined with techno-economical examples. Finally, considering all the contents, we drive our conclusions.
