Recording World Energy Outlook 2022 (English)

The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) and the Federal Foreign Office (AA) with the support of the Federation of German Industries (BDI) and the World Energy Council - Germany e.V. hosted the event "The global energy crisis and pathways to net-zero" on 24th November 2022.

How do we in Germany, Europe and worldwide face the energy crisis driven by Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine in violation of international law? What does this mean for the energy transition – how do we stay on course and maintain confidence when implementing our goals? How can the results of the COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh be interpreted against this background? We would like to discuss these and other questions with expert guests in the light of the presentation of the World Energy Outlook (WEO) 2022 by Dr Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA). The event will be opened by Jennifer Lee Morgan, State Secretary and Special Representative for International Climate Policy at the Federal Foreign Office, Dr Patrick Graichen, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action and Holger Lösch, Deputy Director General of the Federation of German Industries.

Based on the latest data and market developments, the WEO 2022 analyses the impact of the current global energy crisis triggered by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and examines how the global energy system could develop in the years leading up to 2050. Three scenarios illustrate energy supply and demand and the implications for energy security, climate goals and economic development.
