The world energy market is experiencing major transformations: the cost of renewables is plunging and electricity demand is set to grow at twice the pace of energy demand as a whole. Understanding Europe’s Energy Union in this dynamic interplay of energy markets, technologies and policies has never been more critical. The presentation of the 2018 edition of the International Energy Agency’s flagship World Energy Outlook, regarded as the gold standard in energy analysis, sheds light on latest data, technology trends and policy announcements while taking into account energy demand and supply projections through 2040 under different scenarios.
Join IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol and key European leaders to hear how the outlook for global and European energy markets is set to evolve.
- What will tomorrow’s power sector look like? How will it incentivise investment and ensure reliable supply, and what share of our total energy needs can ultimately be met by electricity?
- How are traditional oil and gas-exporting countries adapting to today’s new price and policy environment, and what might be the implications for these economies if longer-term structural changes are needed?
- How is the Energy Union helping Europe in achieving stronger climate action and energy security?
