Fossil fuel production gap report: Key findings

  • The production gap has remained largely unchanged since the first analysis in 2019.
  • The report finds that over the next two decades, governments across the world are collectively projecting an increase in global oil and gas production, and only a modest decrease in coal production.
  • The report finds that given the government priorities and their effort towards fossil fuel production, total fossil fuel production will increase at least till 2040.
  • The window to limit the long-term climate to 1.5°C is rapidly closing.
  • The world’s governments plan to produce around 110% more fossil fuels in 2030 than would be consistent with limiting warming to 1.5°C, and 45% more than consistent with 2°C.
  • Governments’ production plans and projections would lead to about 240% more coal, 57% more oil, and 71% more gas in 2030 than would be consistent with limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
  • Global gas production is projected to increase the most between 2020 and 2040 based on governments’ plans. This continued, long-term global expansion in gas production is inconsistent with the Paris Agreement’s temperature limits.
