The Outlook for Energy - A View to 2040 is ExxonMobil’s long-term view of the global energy future. Updated each year, the Outlook analyzes the trends that will shape global energy supply and demand over the coming decades. As societies advance, they continue to need energy to power homes, businesses, industry, transportation, electricity generation and other vital services. The Outlook examines each of those demand sectors in detail. This year's report reveals a number of key findings about how we use energy, how much we will need in the future and what types of fuels will meet demand:

• Efficiency will continue to play a key role in solving our energy challenges. Energy efficiency is one of the largest and lowest cost ways to extend our world's energy supplies and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

• Energy demand in developing nations (Non OECD) will rise 65 percent by 2040 compared to 2010, reflecting growing prosperity and expanding economies.

• Breakthrough technologies have helped keep pace with rising global energy demand by making more energy supplies available, while also reducing the environmental footprint of energy development.

• Oil will remain the No. 1 global fuel, while natural gas will overtake coal for the No. 2 spot.
