World Energy Outlook 2006

image of 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.

Deepening the Analysis: Results by Sector

International Energy Agency

World electricity generation is 12% lower in 2030 than in the Reference Scenario, mainly because of greater end-use efficiency. The shares of renewables, nuclear power and combined heat and power are higher. The efficiency of fossil-based generation is also higher. Global CO2 emissions from power plants are reduced by 22%, almost 4 gigatonnes. More than half of this reduction occurs in developing countries. In the OECD, power sector emissions are 6% lower than in 2004.
