The power sector carries a considerably great burden of the CO2 emission reductions required to address climate change, a feature common to many scenarios of emissions abatement. These reductions will only be possible if existing plants are replaced with more efficient and less-emitting types of plants over the coming decades.

CO2 emissions from cement production currently represent about 5% of anthropogenic global CO2 emissions. Since 2002, CSI member companies have collectively made significant progress on measuring, reporting and mitigating their CO2 emissions, and

This fifth IEA report under the clean energy technology roadmap series on wind energy discusses the rationale for investing in wind energy, actions and milestones envisioned for its development and the policy frameworks.

Recent IEA analysis highlights member countries

The 2009 edition of the World Energy Outlook (WEO) provides updated projections that take into account the implications of the global credit crisis, the economic slowdown and the recent slump in the prices of oil and other forms of energy.

The special early excerpts of the World Energy Outlook 2009 released by IEA on 6th Oct 2009 at the climate meet in Bangkok. It finds that investment in polluting technologies has been deferred and CO2 emissions could fall in 2009 by as much as 3% - steeper than at any time in the last 40 years.

Improving energy efficiency is a shared policy goal of many governments around the world. The benefits of more efficient use of energy are well known. Not only does it reduce energy costs and investments in energy infrastructure, it also lowers fossil fuel dependency and CO2 emissions, while at the same time increasing competitiveness and improving consumer welfare.

In the lead-up to the UN climate negotiations in Copenhagen, the latest information on the level and growth of CO2 emissions, their source and geographic distribution will be essential to lay the foundation for a global agreement.

After outlining the rationale for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), which revolves primarily around lowering costs of climate change mitigation, and the functioning of the technology, the Roadmap enters into a detailed scenario for the growth of CCS from the few projects that exist today to over three thousand projects by 2050, and concludes with a set of actions that stakeholders can take to achi

The Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (EV/PHEV) Roadmap for the first time identifies a detailed scenario for the evolution of these types of vehicles and their market penetration, from annual production of a few thousand to over 100 million vehicles by 2050. It finds that the next decade is a key
