Tim Gould, Head of the Energy Supply Outlook Division (WEO) at the IEA, Paris, presented the 2017 edition of the Agency’s flagship publication the World Energy Outlook (official launch - 14 November). The WEO provides strategic insight on what today’s policy and investment decisions mean for long-term trends. Based on rigorous modelling across different scenarios, the WEO projections are used by public and private sector stakeholders as a framework for policy-making, planning and investment decisions, and to identify pathways to a sustainable energy future.

Ayed Al-Qahtani, Director of the Research Division at OPEC, Vienna, presented the 2017 World Oil Outlook (official launch - 7 November). The WOO provides an in-depth review and analysis of the global oil industry, and offers a thorough assessment of various sensitivity cases related to the economy, and supply and demand trends in the medium- and long-term. The WOO provides expert analysis of the many challenges and opportunities facing the global oil industry. It serves as an important reference tool, providing insights into the upstream and downstream, as well as issues related to costs, investments, and the potential impact of policies and new technologies.
