World Energy Outlook 2012

  2. 2. © OECD/IEA 2012The context Foundations of global energy system shifting Resurgence in oil & gas production in some countries Retreat from nuclear in some others Signs of increasing policy focus on energy efficiency All-time high oil prices acting as brake on global economy Divergence in natural gas prices affecting Europe (with prices5-times US levels) and Asia (8-times) Symptoms of an unsustainable energy system persist Fossil fuel subsidies up almost 30% to $523 billion in 2011, led by MENA CO2 emissions at record high, while renewables industry under strain Despite new international efforts, 1.3 billion people still lack electricity

  17. 17. © OECD/IEA 2012Foundations of energy system shifting Policy makers face critical choices in reconciling energy,environmental & economic objectives Changing outlook for energy production & use may redefineglobal economic & geopolitical balances Iraq set to play a pivotal role in global oil markets As climate change slips off policy radar, the “lock-in” pointmoves closer & the costs of inaction rise The gains promised by energy efficiency are within reach & areessential to underpin a more secure & sustainable energy system
