What’s the demand outlook for the next five or ten years? As an energy investor, you need updated answers to these questions and many more. The following websites are a good place to get current and reliable information:

  • International Energy Agency (IEA): An independent organization that advises 28 member nations on energy policy, focusing on the areas of energy security, economic development, environmental awareness, and engagement worldwide.

  • CME Group: Formed when the Chicago Mercantile Exchange merged with the Chicago Board of Trade, it now owns the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and the Kansas City Board of Trade (KBOT).
