Coal and its emissions are a critical issue as the world contends with both the global energy crisis and the climate crisis. Coal in Net Zero Transitions: Strategies for rapid, secure and people-centred change is a new IEA special report in the World Energy Outlook series. It presents pragmatic, real-world guidance on how policymakers can achieve a reduction in […]
Climate and Development : An Agenda for Action – Emerging Insights from World Bank Group 2021-22 Country Climate and Development Reports
Climate change poses a major threat to long-term development objectives, especially poverty reduction, and accelerated emission reductions are needed, particularly in high-income and other high-emitting countries. Reducing emissions can be done without comprising development: taken together, CCDR low-carbon development strategies reduce emissions by 70%, without significant impact on growth, provided that policies are well designed […]
BNEF: The new scenario of energy and climate shows that there is still hope to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement
Bloomberg New Energy Finance’s 2022 New Energy Market Long term Outlook Report shows a feasible path for the world to achieve net zero in the middle of this century.
This report sets out to support governments in designing renewable energy targets that can help achieve these pressing objectives. The report presents an overview of the latest updates in climate commitments made ahead of COP27, focusing on the renewable energy targets in NDCs. The analysis illustrates the existing mismatch between renewable targets in NDCs and […]
Electricity is the cornerstone of economic development and human prosperity. Reliable access to affordable and clean electricity unlocks the potential to meet foundational socioeconomic needs, including goals for industrialization, education, and public health.
World Energy Outlook 2022 shows the global energy crisis can be a historic turning point towards a cleaner and more secure future
For the first time, global demand for each of the fossil fuels shows a peak or plateau across all WEO scenarios, with Russian exports in particular falling significantly as the world energy order is reshaped.
The report highlights key energy security concerns during energy transitions and provides governments, notably within the Group of Twenty (G20), with policy recommendations for maintaining and improving energy security, while accelerating clean energy transitions to address the triple crises.
The rapid deployment in the building sector of clean energy technologies and behavioural shifts, supported by innovation strategies, has the potential to significantly reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 2030 and paves the way to achieve the zero-carbon buildings stock targets under the IEA’s Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario (NZE Scenario).
