This statistical report is designed to help understand what drives final energy use in IEA member countries in order to improve and track national energy efficiency policies.

Bioenergy is the main source of renewable energy today.

As oil and coal fall back and renewables ramp up strongly, natural gas becomes the largest single fuel in the global mix in the Sustainable Development Scenario says World Energy Outlook 2017.

The rapid fall in cost of solar and wind power technologies opens a new range of possibilities to decarbonise the global economy and cut carbon emissions from industry. Besides direct renewable heat and electrification, hydrogen-rich chemicals that are easy to store and transport could serve as feedstock, process agents and fuels.

Digital technologies are everywhere, affecting the way we live, work, travel and play. Digitalization is helping improve the safety, productivity, accessibility and sustainability of energy systems around the world. But it is also raising new security and privacy risks, while disrupting markets, businesses and workers.

Industrial restructuring and diversification of energy demand are accelerating in the People’s Republic of China (hereafter, “China”). In addition, driven by resource and environmental constraints, as well as pressure to reduce carbon emissions, China’s primary energy consumption structure is expected to shift in coming decades.

In recognition of the fundamental importance of energy related environmental issues, the latest information on CO2 emissions from fuel combustion – level, growth, source and geographic distribution – will be essential to analysts and policy makers in many international fora.

The ten Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries are among the most dynamic parts of the global energy system and a rising force in international energy affairs.

A new and detailed analysis from the International Energy Agency finds that the most cost-effective strategy for providing universal access to electricity and clean-cooking facilities in developing countries is compatible with meeting global climate goals, and prevents millions of premature deaths each year.

The recent acceleration in global energy efficiency gains risks slowing down if governments do not maintain their focus on implementing new efficiency policies, according to a new report by the International Energy Agency.
