A foresight perspective of the electricity sector evolution by 2050

A number of factors are impacting the power systems all around the world. Among them, we can cite the massive integration of renewable energy sources, the decentralization and the digitalization of the power system, the active participation of consumers in the energy transition, etc. If these factors already introduced major changes in the power system, it is expected that fundamental changes will continue to occur in the upcoming decades. The main purpose of this study is to emphasize the long-term trends(horizon 2050)that will impact power systems in general and the European power system in particular. Boundaries of the power system, such as its interactions with other energy systems will be included in the study.
