World Energy Outlook

14 November 2013, Climate-l

The WEO predicts that global energy demand will increase by one-third by 2035, driven nearly completely by emerging and developing economies. It suggests that, as the energy sector is responsible for two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions, much of the burden of mitigating climate change will fall on this sector and these countries.

The global oil market is currently well supplied but growing demand pressures and ongoing disruptions in some OPEC producing countries could soon reverse a recent spate of softer oil prices, the International Energy Agency said Thursday.

China's increase in renewable energy is on course to surpass the European Union, the United States and Japan combined, says the International Energy Agency. In its annual World Energy Outlook released Tuesday, the IEA said China will be the strongest driver in the worldwide trend in which renewable energy is expected to account for almost half of the increase in global power generation by 2035, China Daily reports.

India to drive global oil demand by 2020: IEA chief economist Dr Fatih Birol

13 November 2013, Times of India

Global warming is set to continue unabated with temperatures rising by 20% by 2035, putting the world on track for a temperature increase of 3.6 degrees, far above the UN target of 2.0 degrees. This is the finding of the International Energy Agency (IEA) in its annual report released on Tuesday.

A VAST upheaval in energy markets with the rise of shale oil and of demand in emerging economies is changing the fuel map of the globe, the IEA said on Tuesday. The agency also argued for fuel subsidies to be phased out, and warned that carbon emissions would go on rising, pushing up temperatures around the world.

Surging energy demand in Asia will deliver ''a golden age'' for the Australian economy but also set the world on a path of dangerous climate change as fossil fuel-sourced emissions soar, according to the International Energy Agency. China will soon dislodge the US as the world's biggest oil importer and India will be the largest coal importer by the early 2020s as the centre of energy demand shifts ''decisively'' to emerging economies, the IEA said in its World Energy Outlook 2013 report.

Countries from the Middle East, led by Saudi Arabia, will maintain their monopoly in the oil market despite the rise of the United States and increased production from Brazil, said today the IEA. The United States are experiencing an energy revolution by exploiting unconventional sources such as shale gas and light tight oil, but this dominance "will last only a decade" according to the IEA, as resources are scarce.

The shale gas boom will boost US manufacturing and jobs until at least 2035, the world’s most respected energy body predicted yesterday, reinforcing America’s economic edge over Asia and Europe for the next two decades. The International Energy Agency said that shale would continue to fuel the American economy even after the US starts ramping up exports, despite fears that selling the cheap gas to overseas customers would erode the country’s competitive advantage.

The boom in oil from shale formations in recent years has generated a lot of discussion that the United States could eventually return to energy self-sufficiency, but according to a report released Tuesday by the International Energy Agency, production of such oil in the United States and worldwide will provide only a temporary respite from reliance on the Middle East.
