The International Energy Agency (IEA)’s World Energy Outlook (WEO), which has appeared year by year since 1998, provides critical analysis and insights on trends in energy demand and supply, and what they mean for energy security, environmental protection and economic development. The IEA’s flagship publication includes a comprehensive view of how the global energy system could develop in the coming decades, with an indispensable guide to the opportunities, benefits and risks ahead at this moment for clean energy transitions.

This event will showcase the latest findings from the WEO scenarios, highlighting the key choices, consequences and contingencies that lie ahead in the path of clean energy transition. It will also illustrate how the course of the energy system might be affected by changing some of the key variables, including the climate actions adopted by governments around the world.
