World Energy Outlook 2006

This 2006 edition of IEA's annual World Energy Outlook presents two visions of the energy future.  Will it be under-invested, vulnerable and dirty, or clean, clever and competitive?  This edition of WEO responds to the remit of the G8 world leaders by mapping a new energy future, contrasting it with where we are now headed. WEO 2006 shows how to change course. It counts the costs and benefits - and the benefits win.

World Energy Outlook 2006 also answers these questions:

  • Is the economic reaction to high energy prices merely delayed?
  • Is oil and gas investment on track?
  • Are the conditions shaping up for a nuclear energy revival?
  • Can biofuels erode the oil  monopoly in road transport?
  • Can 2.5 billion people in developing countries switch to modern energy for cooking?
  • Is Brazil learning new lessons or teaching the world?

With extensive statistics, detailed projections, analysis and advice, WEO 2006 equips policy-makers and the public to re-make the energy future.

Global coal demand in the Reference Scenario is projected to grow at an average annual rate of 1.8% between 2004 and 2030, such that coal’s share in the global energy mix remains broadly constant at around one-quarter. Coal use rises by 32% by 2015 and 59% by 2030 (expressed in tonnes) – a significantly faster rate of growth than in WEO-2005. Of the total increase in demand, 86% comes from developing Asia, particularly China and India. OECD coal use grows modestly.
