2. © OECD/IEA 2014Signs of stress in the global energy systemCurrent calm in markets should not disguise difficult road aheadTurmoil in the Middle East raises doubts over future oil balanceResurgent debate over the security of gas supply to EuropeMixed signals in run-up to crucial climate summit in Paris in 2015Global CO2 emissions still rising, with most emitters on an upward pathAt $550 billion, fossil fuel subsidies over four-times those to renewablesIncreasing emphasis on energy efficiency starting to bring resultsWill change in global energy be led by policies, or driven by events? 3. © OECD/IEA 2014Changing dynamics of global demandEnergy demand by regionAs China slows, then India, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and parts of Africa & Latin America take over as the engines of global energy demand growth.2 0004 0006 0008 00010 000199020002010202020302040MtoeOECDRest of worldChinaChinaRest of worldOECD 4. © OECD/IEA 2014United States holds a strong position on energy costsWeighted average cost of energy paid by consumersEconomies face higher costs, but the pace of change varies: China overtakes the US, costs double in India & remain high in the European Union & JapanUnitedStates5001 0001 5002 000EuropeanUnionJapanChinaIndia$/toe200820132040 5. © OECD/IEA 201420132020203020402015Instability in the Middle East a major risk to oil marketsOil production growthThe short-term picture of a well-supplied market should not obscure future risks as demand rises to 104 mb/d & reliance grows on Iraq & the rest of the Middle East+5+10+15-520132020203020402015Net decline in output from other producersIncrease to 2040: 14 mb/dmb/dIncrease to 2040: 14 mb/dMiddle EastBrazilCanadaUnited Statesin United States, Canada, Brazil & the Middle East 6. © OECD/IEA 2014Looking ahead on the oil priceAgainst a backdrop of weaker demand, buoyant supply in North America has brought prices down – but can it keep them down?Lower prices are starting to curtail upstream spending plans, with implications for future supplyOver time, squeezed cash flow would constrain the capacity of North America & Brazil to act as engines of global supply growthSustained $80/barrel oil could provide some breathing space to major oil importers, boosting demand & GDPIt would also accelerate reliance on low-cost producers in the Middle East, some of which face major investment challenges 7. © OECD/IEA 2014Gas on the way to become first fuel, with role of LNG on the riseMain sources of regional LNG supplyShare of LNG rises in global gas trade, pushed by a near-tripling in liquefaction sites: LNG brings more integrated & secure gas markets, but only limited relief on pricesMiddle EastAustraliaUS & CanadaEast AfricaRussiaNorth AfricaWest AfricaOtherMiddle EastSoutheast AsiaWest AfricaAustraliaNorth AfricaOther100200300400500600bcm20122040 8. © OECD/IEA 2014IndiaWorldGlobal coal demand leveling offGlobal coal demand by key regionGlobal coal demand growth slows rapidly due to more stringent environmental policies, underlining the importance of high-efficiency plant & CCS to coal’s future1 0002 0003 0004 0005 0006 0007 0001980199020002010202020302040Mtce1987: European coal demand peak2005: US coal demand peakChinese coal demand plateauIndia: 2nd largest coal consumer by 2020OtherIndiaChinaUnited StatesEurope 9. © OECD/IEA 2014Retirements add to the investment challenge in the power sectorPower capacity by source, 2013-2040Despite limited demand growth, OECD countries account for one-third of capacity additions – to compensate for retirements & to decarbonise2013RetirementsAdditions20402 0004 0006 0008 00010 00012 000GWRenewablesNuclearOilGasCoal 10. © OECD/IEA 2014Renewables supply half of the growth in global power demand;
