The World Energy Outlook 2004 presents long-term projections for supply and
demand of oil, gas, coal, renewable energy sources, nuclear power and
electricity. It also assesses energy-related carbon dioxide emissions and
policies designed to reduce them.
The International Energy Agency's World Energy Outlook has long been recognised
as the authoritative source for projections of global trends in ... energy supply
and demand, trade and investment and carbon dioxide emissions. This edition
extends its projection horizon to the year 2030. Against the background of the
re-emergence of energy security as a global concern, it highlights the rapidly
expanding importance of China as a strategic buyer on world oil and gas
markets, the fact that a quarter of the world's population still lacks modern
energy services, the huge investments needed to maintain dependable energy
supplies world wide, and the scale of the task facing those countries that are
committed to reducing their greenhouse-gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol.
This new edition in the World Energy Outlook series incorporates the latest
energy-market and price developments. It covers the world and 19 regions and
draws lessons for energy security, trade and investment. It provides readers
with a solid analytical basis for understanding the drivers of energy markets
and the challenges facing both policy-makers and the private sector.
