Release Date: 11/21/2017
Economic growth in both China and India is an important determinant of worldwide energy consumption because of their large size and the anticipated high economic growth that extends far into the future. Yet, considerable uncertainty exists as to how fast these two economies will actually grow over the next 25 years. This article discusses the economic developments in these two countries and compares results from separate runs of the U.S. Energy Information Administration's (EIA) World Energy Projection System Plus (WEPS+) model to the projections in the International Energy Outlook 2017 (IEO2017). These results help quantify some of the uncertainty associated with the effects that differences in long-term economic growth in China and India may have on international energy markets.

Release Date: 10/23/2017
Variability surrounding future battery technology, government policies, consumer preferences, and other developments related to personal transportation markets casts a great deal of uncertainty on the long-term effects that battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles may have on worldwide energy consumption. This article discusses market trends related to these plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and compares results from standalone runs of EIA’s new International Transportation Energy Demand Determinates model  to those presented in the International Energy Outlook 2017 (IEO2017). These results help quantify some of the uncertainty associated with the long-term effects that PEVs may have on energy markets.
