Tim Gould

International Energy Agency

Head of Division, Energy Supply and Investment Outlooks

Tim Gould is co-head of the World Energy Outlook series at the Paris-based International Energy Agency (IEA). He designs and directs the work together with the IEA’s Chief Energy Modeller and contributes to the Outlook as a principal author. He oversees the Agency’s analysis of energy investment, including the World Energy Investment report. The World Energy Outlook is the IEA’s flagship publication and one of the world’s most authoritative sources for strategic insight on energy and environmental trends. It covers all fuels and energy technologies and uses different scenarios to illustrate the choices that can lead towards a more secure and sustainable energy future. As part of this work, Tim Gould has led in-depth analysis of Africa (2014 and 2019), Southeast Asia (2017, 2019), major oil and gas-exporting economies (2018) China (2017), Mexico (2016), India (2015), Brazil (2013), Iraq (2012), Russia (2011) and the Caspian region (2010). He has also developed and overseen a multi-year programme of analysis on the future of oil and gas and the evolving pressures on industry and major resource-holders, including detailed work on methane abatement and the emissions intensities of different fuels. Before joining the IEA in 2008, initially as a specialist on Russian and Caspian energy, he worked on European and Eurasian energy issues in Brussels and has ten years of experience in Eastern Europe, primarily in Ukraine. He graduated from Oxford University and has a post-graduate diploma from the School of Advanced International Studies of Johns Hopkins University.

    India's Energy Future: What is ahead?

    Panel Markets/Economics/Strategy Power & Renewables Upstream Oil & Gas
    Clean, affordable, secure, and reliable energy is essential to India’s economic progress. Over the next two decades, India is likely to experience the largest increase in energy demand of any country. The current energy mix in India is led by coal, but demand is rapidly growing for renewables while, at the same time, dependence on oil imports is increasing. What will be the future trajectory of India’s energy mix? Does the pandemic present an opportunity to leapfrog and “build back better”? What should the policy makers do to accelerate the path to low-carbon future and attract foreign investors to India? How could technological innovation be unlocked?
