World Energy Investment Outlook – Special Report

IEA accepts that shale gas/oil production will peak in 2020 and decline thereafter, putting an end to the ‘100 year supply’ and the US net exporter myths.
In the words of the IEA, this “report provides insights into:

  • The structure of ownership and models for financing investment in different parts of the energy sector.
  • The continued importance of oil investment in the Middle East to meet demand, and the consequences of delay in such investment.
  • The dynamics and costs of LNG investment and how this can shape the future of global gas supply.
  • Where investment in the power sector might fall short of what is required, with important findings on the reliability of electricity supply in Europe and in India.
  • The outlook for investment in low-carbon technologies, including renewables, and energy efficiency and the barriers to their realisation.
  • How global investment and financing requirements change if governments take stronger action to address climate change.”
