Paris Time Report launch

World Energy Investment 2024

Background information

The IEA World Energy Investment (WEI) report is the global benchmark for tracking investment trends across the energy world. The 2024 edition will present the latest data on capital flows to different types of energy projects, including a first set of full-year estimates for 2024.

This latest edition provides an expanded analysis on the sources of investment and sources of finance in the energy sector, including new insights on the role of development finance institutions in energy investments across emerging and developing economies. 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 includes a new regional section covering 10 major economies and regions. It will also assess additional efforts needed to meet the COP28 goals to transition away from fossil fuels, triple renewable capacity and double the rate of improvements in energy efficiency by 2030.
