Electric Vehicles (EVs), primarily Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), have the capacity to increase energy efficiency, diversify transport energy carriers, and reduce their carbon intensity, supporting the integration of variable renewable energy in the power generation mix and transferring to the tran

Even as total OECD energy production rose 4% in 2014 to a record high, energy consumption among the member countries fell, as did CO2 emissions from fuel combustion, new IEA data reveal.

Thailand is a rapidly growing country with a large middle class, and as a result may be undergoing a structural transition, changing the nature and shape of electricity demand in the coming years. Thai energy policy is driven by the three pillars of security, affordability and environmental sustainability.

The world’s largest energy consumer and producer as well as the top oil importer and carbon dioxide emitter, the People’s Republic of China is in the centre of the global energy landscape – and at a turning point towards a low-carbon future.

Canada has continued to harvest its vast natural resources and witnessed a shale revolution alongside rising oil sands production and investment in the energy sector over the past five years.

"Re-powering" refers to the process of replacing older power stations with ones that are more efficient and more powerful, but the term also lends itself to market design.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) has been used in commercial manner for decades to increase recovery from oil fields in a process called "CO2-enhanced oil recovery" or CO2-EOR. Harnessing this practice to qualify as permanent storage of CO2 is possible, but requires a major paradigm shift from conventional EOR to "EOR+", including additional activities.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are a central part of economies worldwide, comprising 99% of enterprises and providing about 60% of employment.

Tracking progress in the transition to low-carbon energy systems, including action taken through countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), is necessary to focus attention on the steps needed today to achieve both short- and long-term climate goals.

India is set for a period of rapid, sustained growth in energy demand: how could this re-shape the global energy scene? This comprehensive analysis assesses the multiple challenges and opportunities facing India as it develops the resources and infrastructure to meet its energy needs.
