World Energy Outlook 2018

14 November 2018

Released by the International Energy Agency, the World Energy Outlook 2018 examines future patterns of a changing global energy system at a time of uncertainty.

The report finds that major transformations are underway for the global energy sector, from growing electrification to the expansion of renewables, upheavals in oil production and globalisation of natural gas markets.

Across all regions and fuels, policy choices made by governments will determine the shape of the energy system of the future.

WEO 2018 details global energy trends and what potential impact they will have on supply and demand, carbon emissions, air pollution, and energy access. The scenario-based analysis outlines different possible outlooks for the energy system, contrasting the path taken by current and planned policies with those that can meet long-term climate goals and ensure universal energy access.

See WEO 2018 for the report.
