IEA: Governments must strengthen energy efficiency policies

Energy efficiency improvements could slide unless global governments continue implementing new policies. That’s according to a new report by the International Energy Agency (IEA), which shows global energy intensity, i.e. energy used per unit of GDP, fell by 1.8% in 2016, suggesting more value was generated from the same amount of energy. The world would […]

Global gas demand ‘to rise 1.6% each year’

Global gas demand is expected to see annual growth of 1.6% for the next five years. That’s according to the International Energy Agency (IEA), which says consumption will reach almost 4,000 billion cubic meters (bcm) by 2022, up from 3,630bcm last year. The organisation says this will be driven by new US supplies feeding growing demand in developing economies, combined […]

‘Subsidies are a roadblock to a clean energy future’

Many energy subsidies are a roadblock to a cleaner and more efficient future. That’s according to Toshiyuki Shirai, Senior Energy Analyst for the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook team, who says most government subsidy policies in the world’s energy markets should be reformed. He suggests subsidies result in energy prices that don’t reflect their real market value or the full environmental and social costs attached. […]

Oil supply could fall behind demand by 2020

Global oil supply could struggle to keep pace with demand after 2020 unless new projects are approved soon. That’s according to the latest five-year oil market forecast from the International Energy Agency (IEA), which says this would be likely to cause a sharp increase in prices. The report suggests the global picture appears comfortable for the next […]
