World Energy Outlook 2021: Launch event

The World Energy Outlook (WEO) is the energy world’s most authoritative source of analysis and projections. This flagship publication of the IEA has appeared every year since 1998, and its objective data and dispassionate analysis provide critical insights into global energy supply and demand in different scenarios, and what they mean for energy security, climate targets and economic development.

With the pathway set out in the IEA’s recent Roadmap to Net Zero by 2050 providing an integral part of the analysis, WEO 2021 is designed to serve as a handbook for the COP26 Climate Change Conference in Glasgow at this vital moment for the clean energy transition and climate action.
