On Wednesday, May 20, Resources for the Future (RFF) will host “The Global Energy Outlook 2020: What Has Changed Due to COVID-19?” This webinar will coincide with the release of the 2020 Global Energy Outlook—RFF’s annual report that synthesizes global energy market projections and analysis from leading energy organizations and corporations—and an accompanying interactive web tool. The only such report of its kind, RFF’s 2020 Global Energy Outlook harmonizes analyses from other organizations to allow for a clear understanding and easy comparison of potential future energy markets, energy security scenarios, climate trajectories, and policy options at global, regional, and national levels.
The event, part of our RFF Live series, will feature an in-depth panel discussion on some of the potential long-term outlooks for energy markets and the short- and long-term implications of COVID-19 for the global energy system.
This year’s Global Energy Outlook includes projections from Bloomberg New Energy Finance, BP, Equinor, ExxonMobil, the Institute of Energy Economics of Japan, the International Energy Agency, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, Shell, and the US Energy Information Administration.
