Axios: "One Useful Thing: Apples-to-Apples Energy Outlooks"
A segment in Axios' Generate newsletter highlights the big-picture findings from RFF's 2023 iteration of the Global Energy Outlook report.
"This is cool: Resources for the Future is out with its latest comparison of long-term global energy outlooks and scenarios from prominent analysts, Ben writes.
Why it matters: Different bodies often use different metrics and baselines for energy use, sources, emissions and so forth, so having a harmonized look is helpful.
The nonpartisan think tank creates apples-to-apples comparisons of studies from oil majors, the International Energy Agency, OPEC and more."
