The highly regarded BP Statistical Review of World Energy is an objective overview of what happened to energy markets in 2018.
The 2019 launch webcast – hosted by Bob Dudley, group chief executive, and Spencer Dale, group chief economist – has ended and is available to view on demand.
BP’s economics team produces two reports annually. One – the Energy Outlook – is forward-looking and the other – The Statistical Review of World Energy – analyses data from the previous year. While the Energy Outlook was first published in January 2011, the Statistical Review has been informing the energy economics community since 1965.
The Energy Outlook explores the forces shaping the global energy transition out to 2040 and the key uncertainties surrounding that transition.
It shows how rising prosperity drives an increase in global energy demand and how that demand will be met over the coming decades through a diverse range of supplies including oil, gas, coal and renewables.
The Statistical Review highlights a growing divergence in 2018 between demands for action on climate change and the actual pace of progress on reducing carbon emisions.
