The annual World Energy Outlook is the IEA’s flagship analytical publication and a vital guide to future energy trends. In these webinars, you’ll hear directly from the report’s lead authors about the report’s main messages and findings. We’ll also be responding to your questions and comments, submitted either online during the event or in advance by email to

The hour-long discussion on 6 December will cover the outlook for oil, natural gas and coal. How are these fuels adjusting to today’s market conditions? What are the risks that might lie ahead, from under-investment in essential supply to stranded assets?

On 8 December, we turn to the central pillar of the low-carbon transition, renewable energy. What opportunities and challenges does a rising share of renewable energy open up for the energy system as a whole? What does the rise of wind and solar mean for the design and operation of power markets? What role can renewable energy play in the provision of heat and mobility?
