The world is in transformation, with low-carbon technologies on the rise and electricity demand set to grow at twice the pace of energy demand as a whole. What are the latest data, technology trends and policy announcements and what will they mean for the energy sector up to 2040?   

Dr. Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency will present the World Energy Outlook (WEO) 2018, describing the latest projections, technology trends and policy announcements on a global level.    

Registration is possible using the form on the PBL website.

To translate the global perspectives, as presented by dr. Fatih Birol, into a national perspective, Eric Wiebes, the Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, will reflect on the WEO and describe the lessons to be learned by the Netherlands.
