The World Energy Outlook is the flagship publication of the International Energy Agency. It has long been recognised as the authoritative source of global long-term energy market analysis.
In even-numbered years, the series provides energy demand and supply projections by fuel and by region through to 2030. WEO-2010 presents update projections up to 2035. It draws lessons for energy security, trade and investment, quantifies energy-related carbon dioxide emissions and assesses policies designed to reduce them.
In odd-numbered years the series provides a systematic, objective and comprehensive analysis of a topical issue or challenge confronting the energy sector. It also presents in-depth focus of the most pressing energy topics.
The WEO received numerous awards from governments and energy industry for its analytical excellence.
