Nordic Energy Research participating at COP28, hosting several seminars and activities between 2–6 December. On 5 December at 14.45–15.45, we are co-organizing the session World Energy Outlook 2023 with the International Energy Agency (IEA). The event will showcase the latest findings from IEA’s flagship publication, World Energy Outlook (WEO), which presents a comprehensive view of how the global energy system could develop in the coming decades.

The WEO analysis provides insights on trends in energy demand and supply, and what they mean for energy security, environmental protection and economic development, with an indispensable guide to the opportunities, benefits and risks ahead at this moment for clean energy transitions.

Drawing from the results of WEO, this event will highlight the key choices, consequences and contingencies that lie ahead in the transition towards clean energy. It will also illustrate how the course of the energy system might be affected by changing some key variables, including the climate actions adopted by governments around the world.
