This year, the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) flagship World Energy Outlook (WEO) will include a special study on energy and development, in view of providing a robust and fact-based platform to tackle the energy access deficit. This High-Level Workshop on Energy and Development is hosted by IEA as part of this study. It will bring together leading experts and decision makers from around the world to provide strategic guidance on the analysis and messages of the IEA’s forthcoming study. To this end, the workshop is organized in two parts. The morning will feature discussion on the current status of energy access around the world, the development pathways being utilized and the pace of progress. Sessions in the afternoon will chart the path to sustainable energy for all by 2030 for households and for productive uses.
