World Energy Investment 2023

Background information

The IEA World Energy Investment (WEI) report is the global benchmark for tracking investment trends across the energy world. The 2023 edition will present the latest data on capital flows to different types of energy projects, including a first set of full-year estimates for 2023.

The report will examine how the economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic and the response to the global energy crisis have affected energy investment worldwide. It will also look at how investment trends in clean energy compare with those in fossil fuels, as well as the geographic distribution of these investments.

The report will include new analysis on diversification efforts by some countries to replace reduced gas supplies from Russia. It will also assess what levels of investment are needed to put the world on track for stabilising the rise in global temperatures at 1.5 °C.
