Recent Reports

  • World Energy Outlook 2017
    Energy demand and supply projections to 2040 based on different scenarios
  • Energy Access Outlook 2017: From Poverty to Prosperity

    Published: 19 October 2017

    Energy is essential for humanity to develop and thrive. In 2015, the new Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by 193 countries, included for the first time a target to ensure affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, underscoring a new level of political agreement on the importance of access to modern energy services. At the same time, the declining cost of decentralised renewables, increased access to affordable energy-efficientt appliances and the use of mobile platforms are changing the way we think about providing energy access. It is against this backdrop that the IEA produced this Special Report, part of its flagship World Energy Outlook (WEO) series.

    Southeast Asia Energy Outlook 2017

    Published: 24 October 2017

    The ten Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries are among the most dynamic parts of the global energy system and a rising force in international energy affairs. Thanks to its growing partnership with Southeast Asia, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has conducted regular in-depth studies of the energy challenges facing this region. This new report, which was prepared as part of the IEA’s flagship World Energy Outlook series, provides insights for policy makers, industry and other energy stakeholders to help address the energy sector challenges facing Southeast Asia today.
    The report highlights:
    - The state of play across the Southeast Asia’s energy sector, based on the latest data and announcements
    - How today’s policies shape this region’s energy demand and supply outlook to 2040, and the implications for energy security, the environment and development
    - The opportunities that broader changes in global markets and low-carbon technologies open up for Southeast Asia
    - The investment required to improve efficiency and expand energy supply infrastructure, especially in the electricity sector
    - The mix of fuels and technologies that can help Southeast Asia achieve universal electricity access
    - An alternative pathway, the Sustainable Development Scenario, to meet energy security and environmental goals

    Energy demand and supply projections to 2040 based on different scenarios
  • World Energy Outlook 2016: Special focus on Renewable Energy

    Renewable energy is at the heart of the effort to transform the energy system to make it less carbon intensive, sustainable and compatible with the internationally adopted climate goals. The following three chapters focus on renewable energy, addressing many of the key questions. How fast is it expanding? Does it need to grow even faster? Are renewables competitive today? If not, when? What roles will policy-makers need to play? Can variable renewables be successfully integrated into the electricity system at the scale required?

    World Energy Outlook 2016: Energy and Air Pollution

    • Around 6.5 million premature deaths each year can be attributed to air pollution
    • Energy production and use are by far the largest man-made sources of air pollutants
    • Technologies to tackle air pollution are well known

    Clean air is vital for good health. Yet despite growing recognition of this imperative, the problem of air pollution is far from solved in many countries, and the global health impacts risk intensifying in the decades to come.

    The scale of the public health crisis caused by air pollution and the importance of the energy sector to its resolution are the reasons why the IEA is focusing on this critical topic for the first time.

    Based on new data for pollutant emissions in 2015 and projections to 2040, this special report, the latest in the World Energy Outlook series, provides a global outlook for energy and air pollution as well as detailed profiles of key countries and regions: the United States, Mexico, the European Union, China, India, Southeast Asia and Africa.

    In a Clean Air Scenario, the report proposes a pragmatic and attainable strategy to reconcile the world’s energy requirements with its need for cleaner air. Alongside the multiple benefits to human health, this strategy shows that resolving the world’s air pollution problem can go hand-in-hand with progress towards other environmental and development goals.

    World Energy Outlook 2016: Water-Energy Nexus Excerpt

    This excerpt from the World Energy Outlook 2016 looks at the critical interplay between water and energy, with an emphasis on the stress points that arise as the linkages between these two sectors intensify. The analysis assesses the current and future freshwater requirements for energy production, highlighting potential vulnerabilities and key stress points. 

    In addition, for the first time, the World Energy Outlook looks at the energy-for-water relationship, providing a first systematic global estimate of the energy requirements for different processes in the water sector, including water supply, wastewater treatment and desalination.
