International Energy Outlook 2011



The International Energy Outlook 2011 (IEO2011) presents an assessment by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the outlook for international energy markets through 2035. U.S. projections appearing in IEO2011 are consistent with those published in EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook 2011 (AEO2011) in April 2011. IEO2011 is provided as a service to energy managers and analysts, both in government and in the private sector. The projections are published pursuant to the Department of Wnergy Organization Act of 1977 (Public Law 95-91), Section 205(c).

IEO2011 focuses exclusively on marketed energy. Non-marketed energy sources, which continue to play an important role in some developing countries, are not included in the estimates. The IEO2011 projections are based on U.S. and foreign government laws in effect as of the start of 2011. The potential impacts of pending or proposed legislation, regulations, and standards are not reflected in the projections, nor are the impacts of legislation for which the implementing mechanisms have not yet been announced.
