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.

Hide / Show Abstract

In developing countries, especially in rural areas, 2.5 billion people rely on biomass, such as fuelwood, charcoal, agricultural waste and animal dung, to meet their energy needs for cooking. In many countries, these resources account for over 90% of household energy consumption.
