BP Energy Outlook

Content in this section is taken from the BP Energy Outlook 2019,
published in February 2019
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

2020 launch date announcement

In light of the circumstances surrounding Covid-19, BP has decided to postpone the launch of this year’s BP Energy Outlook, currently scheduled for 21 April.


We will use the additional time to consider any longer-term issues raised by current events and to ensure that the key insights from the Outlook are fully incorporated into BP’s strategy.


This year’s Energy Outlook is likely to be published in the third quarter ahead of BP’s Capital Markets Day in September. The dates for both events will be announced in due course.
