The landmark Paris Agreement on climate change will transform the global energy system for decades to come. The latest World Energy Outlook, the IEA’s annual flagship publication, provides a comprehensive analysis of what this transformation might look like.

It reviews the key opportunities and challenges ahead for renewable energy, the central pillar of the low-carbon energy transition, as well as the critical role for energy efficiency. It also explores how oil, natural gas and coal are adjusting to today’s market conditions and assesses the risks that lie ahead, from under-investment in essential supply to stranded assets.

Dr. Christophe McGlade will help shed light on this changing landscape, presenting the main findings of the 2016 edition of the World Energy Outlook.

Prior to joining the IEA, Christophe was lead researcher for the Resources and Vectors theme of the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC). He completed a PhD in energy and resources at the UCL Energy Institute in 2013, holds a BA and MSci from Queens' College at the University of Cambridge in Theoretical and Experimental Physics, and is an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources.
