World Energy Outlook 2011 launched in London

9 November 2011

The WEO-2011 looks at how the energy system will evolve in the next 25 years, taking account of the broad policy commitments that have already been announced by countries around the world to address climate change and growing energy insecurity.

The WEOalso focuses on climate change issue - with an assessment of what infrastructure "lock-in" means for manoeuvrability to meet the 2 degrees Celsius goal, the potential implications of a rapid slowdown in the use of nuclear power for the global energy landscape, the role of coal in an emissions-constrained world and the consequences on global energy markets of a possible delay in oil and gas sector investment in the Middle East and North Africa. The book includes a review of energy in Russia, looking at the trends in domestic energy markets, supply prospects and its implications for global energy supply.
