The World Energy Review publication, now at its 21st edition, has been split in two dynamic modules, the first released in July, the second in September with the goal to make information available more promptly and usable. In addition, this year we also set up an interactive platform, which will help you navigate through specific selected items.
Deepening the energy transition process this year the issue of critical minerals was introduced. The transition from fossil fuels to low-carbon energy sources calls for the massive deployment of a wide range of clean energy technologies, many of which in turn rely on critical minerals such as copper, lithium, nickel, cobalt and rare earth elements. The increase in consumption of critical minerals for the acceleration of clean energy transition and high geographical concentration of productions could make these minerals subject to strong price volatility and geopolitical influence.
This first module includes data on:
- Oil: reserves, production, consumption, prices and refining industry
- Natural Gas: reserves, prices and estimate of production and consumption
- Renewables: power capacity and estimate of global power generation
- Critical minerals: reserves and production
The second module will provide an update of some contents published in the first release and will add data on:
- Oil: quality and trade
- Natural Gas: production, consumption and trade
- Renewables: power generation
