This latest study by the International Energy Agency (IEA) on world electricity consumption, its current status, and the most likely developments we are going to see during the next few years. If you are familiar with other IEA reports, you may find this one a bit of a change as it is not just a detailed collection of data, an account of the methodology applied, and the resulting statistical analysis. In this particular study, the IEA has also included a set of more general topical essays from various experts within the organization. There are actually ten of these essays/chapters in the first part of the book. The compiled essays presents all the latest data if you are working in an area associated with the global electricity industry. It also provides many insights into the current status of the electricity industry and, if you are concerned with such matters, you will find information on key trends and issues.
