Abstract

BP Energy Outlook

The BP Energy Outlook explores what the world’s energy mix will look like in the future. Which fuels will gain – and lose – global market share? What is the outlook for U.S. tight oil and shale gas supply, and what will the U.S. energy renaissance mean for global markets? What changes are likely for China (the world’s biggest energy consumer)? What are the implications for CO2 emissions? The BP Energy Outlook 2035 (2015 Edition) reflects BP’s best effort to describe a “most likely” trajectory of the global energy system, based on its views of likely economic and population growth, as well as developments in policy and technology.
