As the world enters the second year of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the annual Global Energy Review by International Energy Agency, assesses the direction energy demand and carbon dioxide emissions are taking in 2021.

The latest statistical data and real-time analysis confirm our initial estimates for 2020 energy demand and CO2 emissions while providing insights into how economic activity and energy use are rebounding in countries around the world — and what this means for global emissions.
