The 2011 edition of the World Energy Outlook from the International Energy Agency (IEA) provides the “latest energy demand and supply projections for different future scenarios, broken down by country, fuel and sector.” While the publication is not free, a 10 page executive summary(pdf) is available for download along with key graphs (pdf) as well as six fact sheets that address the following questions:
How will global energy markets evolve to 2035?
What will avoiding irreversible climate change mean for the energy sector?
What future for oil and gas?
What role for Russia in world energy supply?
What role for coal in an emissions-constrained world?
How big are energy subsidies and which fuels benefit?
A review of these elements in the 2011 edition of the World Energy Outlook can provide you with updated energy content for classroom use.
