SUGAR LAND--June 22, 2022--Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Global energy investment is expected to grow about 8% in 2022 to reach $2.4 trillion, mainly driven by investments in clean energy.

In its World Energy Investment 2022 report, released June 22, the agency looks both to policymakers around the world and oil & gas companies--whose net profits this year are expected to double to about $4 trillion--for leadership in boosting clean-energy investments to a level that would keep global temperature gain to 1.5 degrees Celsius, as called for in the 2015 Paris Agreement. Global temperatures have increased about 1.1 degrees Celsius in recent years.
