Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM CET
Speakers: Tim Gould and Brent Wanner
The new IEA World Energy Outlook (WEO) was released on 13 November and in this webinar you can hear about the key findings from two of the Outlook’s lead authors, Tim Gould and Brent Wanner.
The 2018 edition provides updated analysis to show what the latest data, technology trends and policy announcements might mean for the energy sector to 2040. It also outlines an integrated way to meet multiple sustainable development goals: limiting the global temperature rise in line with the Paris Agreement, addressing air pollution, and ensuring universal access to energy.
These points of orientation allow for rigorous thinking about the future against a backdrop of cost reductions in key clean energy technologies, the continued vitality of shale in the United States, and the fast-changing dynamics of energy investment.
This year’s Outlook includes a special focus on electricity. The future is electrifying, with low-carbon technologies on the rise and electricity demand set to grow at twice the pace of energy demand as a whole. But what will tomorrow’s power sector look like? How will it incentivise investment and ensure reliable supply, and what share of our total energy needs can ultimately be met by electricity?
The annual World Energy Outlook is the IEA’s flagship publication and a vital guide to future energy trends. In this webinar, the report’s main authors will present its key findings and also responding to questions and comments, submitted either online during the event or in advance by email to WEO@iea.org.
