A Message from the World Energy Council

As the COVID-19 pandemic reaches most corners of the world, pulling together as a community of deep expertise has never been more important - to share experiences and lessons learned, and better prepare for and shape what comes next. Our role as a credible, responsible and impartial value-adding “global voice” for whole energy system movement has never been more critical.

World Energy Outlook 2019

The World Energy Outlook takes into account all the latest market and technology information, as well as policy developments in different parts of the world, in order to produce scenario-based analysis. This year’s publication includes detailed analysis of three critical areas:

  • Africa: The analysis examines in particular new opportunities to provide universal access to clean, affordable energy, and how the energy sector can open up perspectives for economic growth across Africa.
  • Offshore wind: The technical potential for offshore wind is huge, and investment in Europe’s North Sea has underscored the scope for technology cost reductions and performance gains. This analysis explores the prospects for growth in leading markets around the world.
  • Future of gas infrastructure: How does the role of gas networks evolve in a low-emissions energy system in which electricity takes a larger share of final consumption? This chapter examines the options to reduce the emissions intensity of gas supply, primarily via hydrogen and biomethane, and considers the implications for policy design, emissions and energy security.
