Energy Outlook

Energy Outlooks produce forecasts for the future global energy situation, especially in terms of energy demand, energy mix and security of supply. This article compares some of the different energy scenarios that various Outlooks provide, with a focus on the estimated impact of climate change policies on the development of the global energy situation and CO2 emissions in the first third of this century.
