This year’s World Energy Issues Monitor is not like any other. Set against the backdrop of crisis caused by the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 survey of more than 2,500 energy leaders from 108 countries has reframed and reset the energy transition agenda.

The World Energy Issues Monitor is the World Energy Council’s annual survey of key challenges and opportunities faced by energy leaders around the world in managing and shaping energy transitions. The monitor helps to define the world energy agenda and its evolution over time. It provides a high-level perception of what constitute issues of critical uncertainty, in contrast to those that require immediate action or act as developing signals for the future. It is an essential tool for understanding the complex and uncertain environment in which energy leaders must operate, and a tool which challenges one’s own assumptions on the key drivers within the energy landscape.
