In the week or so before I sat down at my desk to write this column, four important and potentially linked events took place.
Carbon emissions from fossil fuel use hit a record last year after energy demand grew at its fastest pace in a decade, reflecting higher oil consumption in the U.S. and more coal burning in China and India.
Global oil demand remains on course to be stronger this year than in 2018 as a boost from lower fuel prices counters slowing economic activity, according to the International Energy Agency.
Governments must make decisions "as of today" to drive the world towards clean energy in a bid to cut carbon emissions and improve air quality, the International Energy Agency has said.
Driving electric cars and scrapping your natural gas-fired boiler won’t make a dent in global carbon emissions, and may even increase pollution levels.
Renewables will provide almost a third (30%) of the world's electricity in five years' time, a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) said.
Global investment in energy is failing to keep up with security and sustainability goals, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).
OPEC’s Gulf members may need to pump almost as much crude as they can to cover swelling supply losses from Venezuela to Iran and beyond, the International Energy Agency said.
The International Energy Agency cut forecasts for global oil demand growth in 2018 as the highest prices in three years put a brake on consumption.
Global oil demand is expected to increase by 1.5million barrels per day (b/d) to 99.3million, according to the latest forecast from the International Energy Agency (IEA).
The U.S. will dominate global oil markets for years to come, satisfying 80 percent of global demand growth to 2020 as the shale boom keeps OPEC under pressure, the International Energy Agency said.
Crude lost steam as the International Energy Agency warned about seemingly unstoppable U.S. shale production against the backdrop of swelling American oil stockpiles.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) says it has had the widest ever response to an exercise to simulate a global oil supply disruption.
U.S. oil output is set for “explosive” growth this year as prices rally, potentially offsetting a further collapse in Venezuela’s production, the International Energy Agency said.
For all the new wind parks, solar farms and hydro plants that will help Europe’s biggest economy generate yet another renewable energy record this year, the world’s dirtiest power fuel still rules in Germany and sets the price for how much factories are paying for electricity.
The two most critical forecasts of global oil markets offer contrasting visions for 2018: one in which OPEC finally succeeds in clearing a supply glut, and another where that goal remains elusive.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has announced that it will reduce its estimate for UK oil production by 300kb/d for December in reaction to the Forties pipeline closure.
The world is witnessing “the birth of a new era” in solar power, with the technology growing faster than any other fuel in 2016, the International Energy Agency said.
A dearth of new investment in oil production is stoking a risk of tighter crude supply and unstable prices, even as demand growth is expected to slow over the next five years, according to a senior International Energy Agency official.
Oil rose as the International Energy Agency forecast the strongest demand growth in two years, while OPEC was said to discuss prolonging output cuts further into 2018.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has said that it believes there is no need for a coordinated international oil stock release after the market disruption by Hurricane Harvey.
As Hurricane Harvey shutters Texas oil extraction, the International Energy Agency (IEA) makes clear that record US oil stocks will be made available in the event of extended power outages.
Compliance with output quotas agreed between oil producing states has hit its lowest level, the International Energy Agency said today.
Total worldwide energy investment was about $1.7 trillion in 2016 – a fall of 12% in real terms from 2015, according to the IEA’s annual World Energy Investment report.
Oil is trading near $50 again, OPEC seems to be losing its ability to influence prices and a wave of new supply is hitting the market from Texas to Libya. For some, there’s never been a better time to buy.
