International Energy Agency (RFFers can download the complete fee-based report at OECD iLibrary; see library passwords page if prompted for a password)

Big questions abound in global energy in 2015:

  • Could oil prices stay lower for longer? What would it take for this to happen and what would it mean for energy security and for the energy transition?
  • India is set for a period of rapid, sustained growth in energy demand: how could this re-shape the energy scene?
  • What do new climate pledges mean for the way that the world meets its rising needs for energy?
  • What are the implications of the rising coverage of energy efficiency policies and the growing competitiveness of renewables?
  • Is the unconventional gas revolutiongoing to go global or to remain a North American phenomenon?

These issues – and many more – are discussed here, with a special focus on India accompanying the customary, in-depth WEO analysis of the prospects for all fossil fuels, renewables, the power sector and energy efficiency around the world to 2040.
