The World Energy Resources have been produced by the World Energy Council for over 80 years. The details and analysis provide a unique data set that allows governments, private sector and academia to better understand the reality of the energy sector and the resource developments. The assessments are compiled with our network of member committees in over 90 countries along with a panel of experts who provide insights from across the globe. With information covering more than 180 countries, this is the 24th edition of the World Energy Resources report.
 
The report includes 13 chapters, which cover coal, oil, gas, uranium & nuclear, hydropower, bioenergy, waste-to-energy, solar, geothermal, wind, marine and two cross cutting topics, energy storage and CC(U)S. The reputation and value of the study rests on three main factors: the study presents unbiased data and facts from an independent and impartial organisation, it covers technological, economic and environmental aspects of conventional and renewable sources, and it provides assessments on global, regional and country levels prepared by an international network of respected experts.
