This presentation will provide ExxonMobil's  Outlook for Energy , which reflects an assessment of global supply and demand through 2030. The  Outlook  focuses on several key areas including growing transportation and power generation demands as well as the outlook for energy-related CO2 emissions.  While the United States and other developed countries will reduce emissions, the economic growth and associated energy needs of developing countries will drive global CO2 levels higher over the Outlook timeframe.  This highlights a major challenge - how to continue to provide the reliable, affordable energy necessary to bring billions of people up the economic ladder while mitigating the growth of CO2 emissions.  Meeting these global energy challenges requires an integrated set of solutions:  moderating demand through energy-efficient technologies and practices, expanding access to all economically viable energy sources, and mitigating the risks of climate change through development and deployment of advanced technologies.
