World Energy Outlook 2009

Energy-sector perspective to 2030

• Global energy markets: how long will the impact of the recession be felt?

• Energy use & CO2 emissions: what have been the effects of the economic downturn?

• Falling energy investment: could tighter supplies and prices lead to another crunch?

• Low-carbon technologies: how can windows of deployment opportunity be seized?

• Emissions reduction: will vigorous action today cost less than waiting till later?

• Gas markets: could a gas glut develop as low-carbon policies kick in?

• Asia's fast-growing economies: what is their future role in global energy markets?

• Poorer nations: how can poverty be tackled through access to electricity?

This year's IEA World Energy Outlook (WEO) addresses these questions and many other wide-ranging energy issues high on the agendas of government and industry around the globe. It explores trends in all corners of the energy sector, dwelling long and hard on the impact of the worldwide financial crisis, on climate change and on developments in the energy markets. This year's edition offers yet greater country-level detail in its statistics on global energy trends to 2030.

In the run-up to the December Copenhagen climate talks, the 2009 edition of the IEA's WEO presents a "450 scenario" showing how a well-tailored mix of policy instruments, sectoral agreements and national policies can reduce greenhouse emissions to levels consistent with limiting the rise in global average temperatures to 2o C.

WEO 2009 picks three special topics for in-depth focus.

Financing energy investment under a post-2012 climate framework, with emphasis on benefits as well as costs.
Prospects for global natural gas markets, with broad focus on resources, technology, production and prices.
Energy trends in Southeast Asia, with profiles of Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

The WEO's authoritative projections, analysis and statistics are a well established reference source for a wide readership of energy-sector stakeholders.
