2 © OECD/IEA 2012 The context Foundations of global energy system shifting Resurgence in oil & gas production in some countries Retreat from nuclear in some others Signs of increasing policy focus on energy efficiency All-time high oil prices acting as brake on global economy Divergence in natural gas prices affecting Europe (with prices 5-times US levels) and Asia (8-times) Symptoms of an unsustainable energy system persist Fossil fuel subsidies up almost 30% to $523 billion in 2011, led by MENA CO 2 emissions at record high, while renewables industry under strain Despite new international efforts, 1.3 billion people still lack electricity

3 © OECD/IEA 2012 Emerging economies steer energy markets Share of global energy demand Global energy demand rises by over one-third in the period to 2035, underpinned by rising living standards in China, India & the Middle East 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% Middle East India China OECD Non-OECDRest of non-OECD Mtoe Mtoe Mtoe

6 © OECD/IEA 2012 Middle East oil to Asia: a new silk road Middle East oil export by destination By 2035, almost 90% of Middle Eastern oil exports go to Asia; North Americas emergence as a net exporter accelerates the eastward shift in trade 7 United StatesJapan & KoreaEuropeChinaIndia mb/d

7 © OECD/IEA 2012 Natural gas: towards a globalised market Major global gas trade flows, 2010 Rising supplies of unconventional gas & LNG help to diversify trade flows, putting pressure on conventional gas suppliers & oil-linked pricing mechanisms Major global gas trade flows, 2035

8 © OECD/IEA 2012 Different trends in oil & gas import dependency While dependence on imported oil & gas rises in many countries, Net oil & gas import dependency in selected countries 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% 20%40%60%80%100% Oil imports Gas Imports United States China India European Union Japan % Gas Exports the United States swims against the tide

9 © OECD/IEA TWh A power shift to emerging economies The need for electricity in emerging economies drives a 70% increase in worldwide demand, with renewables accounting for half of new global capacity Change in power generation, Japan European Union United States China TWh CoalGasNuclearRenewables India

10 © OECD/IEA 2012 The multiple benefits of renewables come at a cost Renewable subsidies were $88 billion in 2011; over half the $4.8 trillion required to 2035 has been committed to existing projects or is needed to meet 2020 targets Global renewable energy subsidies $50 $100 $150 $200 $ Billion $960 billion $2 600 billion $1 200 billion Existing capacity Electricity: Biofuels:

11 © OECD/IEA 2012 Wide variations in the price of power Electricity prices are set to increase with the highest prices persisting in the European Union & Japan, well above those in China & the United States Average household electricity prices, ChinaUnited StatesEuropean UnionJapan cents/kWh 2011 Non-OECD average 2011 OECD average

12 © OECD/IEA Energy is becoming thirstier in the face of growing water constraints The energy sectors water needs are set to grow, making water an increasingly important criterion for assessing the viability of energy projects 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% 2010 Coal Nuclear Other Energy Biofuels Fossil fuels Power Global water useWater for energy

15 © OECD/IEA 2012 Energy efficiency brings economic gains In addition to cutting energy expenditures by an average of 20%, improved efficiency brings wider economic gains, particularly for India, China, the United States & Europe Energy expenditure in 2035 compared with 2010 Trillion Efficient World Scenario New Policies Scenario Additional in the New Policies Scenario -$0.3 $0 $0.3 $0.6 $0.9 $1.2 $1.5 ChinaIndiaEuropean Union United States Japan

17 © OECD/IEA 2012 Foundations of energy system shifting Policy makers face critical choices in reconciling energy, environmental & economic objectives Changing outlook for energy production & use may redefine global economic & geopolitical balances Iraq set to play a pivotal role in global oil markets As climate change slips off policy radar, the lock-in point moves closer & the costs of inaction rise The gains promised by energy efficiency are within reach & are essential to underpin a more secure & sustainable energy system
