The precipitous fall in oil prices, continued geopolitical instability and the ongoing climate negotiations are witness to the dynamic nature of energy markets. In a time of so much uncertainty, understanding the implications of the shifting energy landscape for economic and environmental goals and for energy security is vital.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) published detailed analysis of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fuel combustion.

For the first time in 1996, the IEA produced a compilation of its most used statistics in a booklet easily accessible to all – what is now the annual Key World Energy Statistics (KWES). Since then, the booklet has been hugely successful and has become a constant companion of energy analysts and policy makers. Key World Energy Statistics contains timely, clearly presented data on the supply, transformation and consumption of all major energy sources for the main regions of the world.

As the world prepares for the COP21 climate negotiations in Paris this year, the new book Energy Efficiency Market Report 2015 reveals that energy efficiency improvements since 1990 in IEA member countries avoided 870 million tonnes of CO2 emissions in 2014 – and a cumulative 10 billion tonnes over the last 25 years, roughly equivalent to curren

The report, Development Prospects of the ASEAN Power Sector, highlights the role that power sector governance can play in supporting the development needs of the region, and pays particular attention to the implications of renewable energy integration in power sectors that currently rely significantly on fossil fuels.

Southeast Asia Energy Outlook 2015 draws on the latest available energy and macroeconomic data, as well as policy and market developments, to examine the current status and future prospects for energy markets in this vibrant region and considers their implications for energy security and the environment.

Hydrogen is an energy carrier that partly offers the advantages of fossil fuels – flexibility and energy density – with potentially a low carbon footprint. As a storehouse of low-carbon energy, it offers a means to integrate high shares of variable renewable electricity into the energy system.

A peak in global energy-related emissions could be achieved as early as 2020 and at no net economic cost says International Energy Agency in this new report .

Despite a few recent success stories, clean-energy progress is falling well short of the levels needed to limit the global increase in temperatures to no more than 2 degrees Celsius, according to an International Energy Agency (IEA) tracking report presented at the Clean Energy Ministerial meeting in Mexico.

New IEA review of country’s energy policies lauds phase-out of gasoline subsidies as key first reform

17 February 2015 Jakarta

Indonesia is enhancing the governance and transparency of its energy institutions and state-owned companies, reducing fuel subsidies and facilitating much-needed infrastructure investments, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said today in its second in-depth review of the country’s energy policies, but it must move to meet demand growth and ensure the environmental sustainability of energy supplies.
