    The FPS Economy, S.M.E.s, Self-Employed and Energy - DG Energy and the Energy Technology Club*, have the pleasure to invite you to the presentation of the “World Energy Outlook 2022” on Wednesday 22 March 2023 (10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.).

    During this event, Dr Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA), will present the key findings of the World Energy Outlook 2022 (WEO).

    Dr Birol will be introduced by Ms Tinne Van der Straeten, federal Minister for Energy. She will also present the highlights of the Belgian energy policy.

    These high-level interventions will be followed by an interactive debate between high-level panellists from the private and public sector. The debate will zoom in on how the energy transition is driving employment. We will discuss the many opportunities that arise but also the obstacles that the industry is facing to educate and/or (re-)train the workforce in the present war-for-talent situation.

    About the World Energy Outlook 2022

    The WEO is the energy world’s most authoritative source of analysis and projections. This flagship publication of the IEA has appeared every year since 1998. Its objective data and dispassionate analysis provide critical insights into global energy supply and demand in different scenarios and the implications for energy security, climate targets and economic development.

    The 2022 World Energy Outlook was published against the backdrop of turbulent markets due to the energy crisis that followed upon Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. As such it provides an indispensable guide to the opportunities, benefits and risks at this vital moment for clean energy transitions.
