On July 1, 2019, Resources for the Future (RFF) hosted "The Global Energy Outlook: The Next Generation of Energy." RFF also launched its 2019 Global Energy Outlook: The Next Generation of Energy, an annual review of global energy market projections by leading international energy organizations and corporations around the world. The only such report of its kind, RFF’s 2019 Global Energy Outlook harmonizes analyses from other organizations to allow for a clear understanding and easy comparison of potential future energy markets, energy security scenarios, climate trajectories, and policy options at global, regional, and national levels.
The report is accompanied by an interactive web tool, which allows users to visualize, compare, and download harmonized data from each projection.
The event, part of our RFF Live series, featured an in-depth conversation on the 2019 Global Energy Outlook with RFF President Richard G. Newell, RFF Senior Research Associate Daniel Raimi, and Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) Senior Vice President Sarah Ladislaw, moderated by Axios Energy Reporter Ben Geman. Panelists explored some of the potential outlooks for energy markets, such as coal consumption in China, oil consumption in India, solar power in the United States, and associated carbon dioxide emissions.
This year’s Global Energy Outlook includes projections from Bloomberg New Energy Finance, BP, Equinor, ExxonMobil, the Institute of Energy Economics of Japan, the International Energy Agency, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, Shell, and the US Energy Information Administration.
