The global energy scene is in a state of flux. Large-scale shifts include the rapid deployment and steep declines in the costs of major renewable energy technologies; the growing importance of electricity in energy use across the globe; profound changes in China's economy and energy policy, moving consumption away from coal; and the continued surge in shale gas and tight oil production in the United States. These changes provide the backdrop for the World Energy Outlook 2017 (WEO-2017), which includes a full update of energy demand and supply projections to 2040 in different scenarios, accompanied by detailed analyses of their impact on energy industries and investment, as well as implications for energy security and the environment.

The WEO-2017 includes a major fuel focus on natural gas. The outlook for gas markets is evolving rapidly under pressure from two revolutions: the shale revolution, led by the United States, and the LNG revolution that is testing traditional gas business and pricing models. The new Outlook also investigates the wider opportunities and uncertainties for gas in the transition to a cleaner energy system, including its role in tackling local pollution as well as the risk of methane emissions.
