About this report
A better understanding of the risks faced by investors requires timely and authoritative data and analysis, which the IEA is providing with World Energy Investment 2019.
This year's report finds that global energy investment stabilised in 2018, ending three consecutive years of decline, as capital spending on oil, gas and coal supply bounced back while investment stalled for energy efficiency and renewables - clear signals of a growing mismatch between current trends and the paths to meeting the Paris Agreement and other sustainable development goals.
