About the GEP model
Our Global Energy Perspective is based on a bottom-up energy demand model, projecting the evolution of energy systems by country (for 145 countries), by sector (for 28 sectors), and by fuel (for 55 energy types). For each sector and country, a detailed methodology defines how fundamental drivers such as economic growth and population expansion, and key developments such as efficiency improvements and fuel shifts drive the evolution of energy demand.
In our projections, we bring together the views of hundreds of McKinsey experts worldwide, with deep expertise across the broad range of sectors and geographies that are included in our perspective. Moreover, our outlook is part of an integrated perspective that also includes supply side views, closely aligned with specialist teams within McKinsey Energy Insights.
The GEP model is accessible online, providing transparency on the many inputs and assumptions that are underlying our perspective. In an energy landscape that is evolving rapidly, this objective fact base helps our clients around the world to establish, expand, and refine their views on key developments and their implications.
In our GEP web app, you can access the McKinsey perspectives on the future of energy demand yourself.
