The World Energy Outlook does not forecast what will happen, but it explores different possible futures:
- What if the world continues on its current path, with no additional changes?
- What if we reflect today’s policy intentions and targets?
- What if we meet sustainable energy goals in full?
Answering the last question is the goal of the IEA's Sustainable Development Scenario (SDS). Learn more about the SDS in this webinar, presented by IEA Chief Energy Modeler Laura Cozzi and WEO analysts Yasmine Arsalane, Christophe McGlade, Tiffany Vass, and Daniel Crow.
