World Energy Outlook 2009 (to be released 10 November)

The 2009 edition of the World Energy Outlook (WEO), to be released on
10 November, will provide updated projections that take into account the implications of the global credit crisis, the economic slowdown and the recent slump in the prices of oil and other forms of energy. It will also present in-depth analysis of three special topics:

  • Prospects for global natural gas markets
  • Financing energy investment under a post-2012 climate framework
  • Energy trends in Southeast Asia
The annual WEO series is the flagship publication of the International Energy Agency (IEA) and has gained a reputation as the most authoritative source for energy analysis and projections. Each year it provides a quantitative outlook for energy supply and demand in the medium term (2010-2015) and longer-term (2015-2030) and draws lessons for energy security, investment and the environment.

Governments and industry from all across the globe have come to rely on the WEO to provide a consistent basis on which they can formulate policies and design business plans. As it attracts significant press coverage, the report also plays a key role in raising public awareness of the key energy challenges the world is facing, such as worsening oil supply prospects, volatile energy prices and rising energy-related emissions of greenhouse gases.

World Energy Outlook 2008

Is the world facing a supply crunch due to geology or to inadequate investment?  What type of post-Kyoto policy framework could stabilise greenhouse gases at low concentration levels? The answers to these burning questions and more are laid out in the World Energy Outlook 2008.
