About this report

Big questions abound in global energy in 2015: Could oil prices stay lower for longer? What would it take for this to happen and what would it mean for energy security and for the energy transition? India is set for a period of rapid, sustained growth in energy demand: how could this re-shape the energy scene? What do new climate pledges mean for the way that the world meets its rising needs for energy? What are the implications of the rising coverage of energy efficiency policies and the growing competitiveness of renewables? Is the unconventional gas revolution going to go global, or to remain a North American phenomenon? These issues – and many more – are discussed here, with a special focus on India accompanying the customary, in-depth WEO analysis of the prospects for all fossil fuels, renewables, the power sector and energy efficiency around the world to 2040.
