The India launch of IEA

Over 20% of the global population

The Indian gas market is expected to be one of the fastest growing in the world over the next two decades. This paper analyses this market, highlighting the current challenges. It first looks at the industry structure, presents the main players from industry as well as government, and gives an overview of the regulatory framework.

This 2010 edition of Key World Energy Statistics by IEA consists of global data up to 2008 and when available up to 2009, for energy production, trade, transformation and consumption, CO2 emissions from fuel combustion and energy prices.

Geothermal energy is energy available as heat contained in or discharged from the earth

Recent actions by many governments to promote more efficient, cleaner sources of energy signify positive steps to help improve energy security and mitigate climate change. Transformation of the energy sector, however, requires that commitments to energy efficiency and clean energy be sustained on a global level for many years to come.

This report seeks to inform decision makers seeking to prioritise RD&D investments in a time of financial uncertainty. It is an update of the December 2009 IEA report Global Gaps in Clean Energy Research, Development and Demonstration, which examined whether rates of LCET investment were sufficient to achieve shared global energy and environmental goals (IEA,2009a).

This paper looks at three clean energy product categories: equipment energy efficiency; low-carbon transport, including high-efficiency vehicles and electric/plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EV/PHEVs); and solar photovoltaic (PV) power.

This technology roadmap on nuclear energy released by IEA & OECD finds that nearly one-fourth of global electricity generation could be met with nuclear power by 2050, offering significant CO2 savings & says that financing new nuclear plants is expected to be a major challenge.

The report includes: Discussion of the scope of energy subsidies; Estimates of energy subsidies, and identification of the gaps in the existing data and issues around the measurement of energy subsidies; Modelling-based analysis of the implications of phasing-out energy subsidies on the economy, including socio-economic and trade impacts, the environment, and the energy sector; and Suggestions
