The World Energy Outlook series is a leading source of strategic insight on the future of energy and energy-related emissions, providing detailed scenarios that map out the consequences of different energy policy and investment choices.

This year's edition updates the outlooks for all fuels, technologies and regions, based on the latest market data, policy initiatives and cost trends.

In addition, the 2019 report tackles some key questions in depth:

  • What do the shale revolution, the rise of liquefied natural gas, the falling costs of renewables and the spread of digital technologies mean for tomorrow's energy supply?
  • How can the world get on a pathway to meet global climate targets and other sustainable energy goals?
  • What are the energy choices that will shape Africa's future, and how might the rise of the African consumer affect global trends?
  • How large a role could offshore wind play in the transformation of the energy sector?
  • Could the world's gas grids one day deliver low-carbon energy?

Natural gas and resource management

Africa is endowed with abundant oil, gas and mineral resources and these have provided an important source of income for the continent’s economic growth. But changing energy market dynamics offer different prospects for each fuel. Oil production reaches 8.2 million barrels per day (mb/d) by 2040 in the Stated Policies Scenario, just shy of today’s level (after a dip in the 2020s); gas production doubles between 2018 and 2040; and coal production remains at today’s level.
