1. Explain the importance and relevance of global energy outlook within contemporary organisations and evaluate the relationship between these organisation and countries.
2. Analyse the different energy policy frameworks in relation to the impact of the different elements of energy sources and sustainability.
The utilisation of renewable energy sources has become inevitable, not only due to the increasing scarcity of fossil fuels, but also to sustain life on Earth. Consequently, countries have started developing renewable energy policies individually and as part of global organisations and networks, such as the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Recently, President Trump has withdrawn the U.S. from the Paris Agreement and upon inauguration released the America First Energy Plan, which focused on fossil fuels and did not mention renewable energy whatsoever.
