About the World Energy Outlook 2020

The World Energy Outlook series is a leading source of strategic insight on the future of energy and energy-related emissions, based on outlooks for all fuels, technologies and regions, based on the latest market data, policy initiatives and cost trends.

The WEO provides to energy sector decision-makers a concrete, evidence-based overview on their standpoint and the implications of their choices.

The publication does not provide a forecast of what will happen. Rather, it gives a set of scenarios exploring different possible outcomes, actions-or inactions- which will cause them and the interconnections between different parts of the system.

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused more disruption to the energy sector than any other event in recent history, leaving impacts that will be felt for years to come. This IEA World Energy Outlook (WEO) explores in depth the pandemic effects, and in particular how it affects the prospects for rapid clean energy transitions. It's too early to say whether today's crisis represents a setback for efforts to bring about a more secure and sustainable energy system, or a catalyst for accelerating the pace of change. The pandemic is far from over, many uncertainties still remain and crucial energy policy decisions have yet to be taken.

This Outlook explores different pathways out of the Covid-19 crisis, with a particular focus on a pivotal next ten years to 2030. At this hugely consequential moment for the energy sector and for the urgent global response to climate change, the WEO-2020 illustrates the historic nature of the choices, opportunities and pitfalls that will shape where we go from here.
