Explore the Outlook for Energy A View to 2040
The Outlook for Energy is ExxonMobil’s global view of energy demand and supply through 2040. We use
the data and findings to help guide our long-term strategies and investments. It also highlights the dual
challenge of ensuring the world has access to affordable and reliable energy supplies to support prosperity
while reducing environmental impacts – including the risks of climate change. We share the Outlook with
the public to help promote a better understanding of the issues shaping the world’s energy needs.
As the world’s population approaches 9 billion people in 2040, we are challenged to help improve living standards everywhere. We expect that progress will be powered by human ingenuity and the energy that helps make better lives possible.
