A methodological approach to the studies of the global energy industry in the long-term outlook is described. Options of the development of the global energy industry have been calculated by means of mathematical models and analyzed for several scenarios of external conditions. Scenarios differ in the level of economic cooperation between regions (including assistance rendered to developing countries by developed ones), the efficiency of energy use, limitations imposed on CO2 global emissions, and energy policy of hydrocarbon fuel exporting countries.
