IEA Statement on early reports on 2011 World Energy Outlook

4 November 2011

The International Energy Agency (IEA) regrets the early reports published today by a news organisation regarding the World Energy Outlook 2011, which is scheduled to be released at 10 a.m. on 9 November in London.

The IEA did not provide the news organisation with the information on which the reports were based. Indeed, the reports clearly draw on a partial draft excerpt of the World Energy Outlook 2011 that was sent to external peer reviewers in July. Much of the draft has subsequently been revised and updated as part of the IEA’s rigorous review process.

The IEA looks forward to presenting the full World Energy Outlook 2011 as planned on 9 November.
