Limiting the rise in global mean temperature to well below 2°C would require an energy transition of exceptional scope, depth and speed, according to an analysis by the International Energy Agency, including a doubling of annual average energy-related investments from current levels.

China’s cement and steel industry accounts for approximately half of the world’s total cement and steel production. These two industries are two of the most energy-intensive and highest carbon dioxide (CO2)-emitting industries and two of the key industrial contributors to air pollution in China.

The Commission is optimistic that Europe is on track to reach its 2020 targets. Europe has committed itself to increasing its energy efficiency by 20% by 2020. Reaching this target will require effort from all Member States.

According to this report, India’s consumption growth of fossil fuels will be the highest by 2035 and it will overtake China as the largest growth market for energy in volume terms by 2030.

Energy efficiency improvement is an eternal topic in the limited energy sources world. This paper analyzes the relationship between energy efficiency and energy price by using the panel data from ten economic giant. The results show that increasing energy price can promote energy efficiency improvement. If the energy price increases 10%, the energy intensity per unit of GDP could reduce 1%. Compared with other economic giant, the energy price of China is obvious low which is the main reason of China's low energy efficiency.

The share of the world's electricity generated by coal is expected to fall to about 30 percent from approximately 40 percent in 2015 as the use of lower-emission energy sources including natural gas, nuclear and renewables increases says this report.

The reform of the EU Emissions Trading System could hand more than €230 billion in subsidies to energy intensive industries, a new report from Corporate Europe Observatory shows.

This report provides oil and gas companies and their investors with a framework to assess the resilience of company portfolios to climate- and technology driven shifts in demand, and to provide decision-useful insights that will help companies mitigate the vulnerabilities they face as energy markets transition to a low carbon future.

This excerpt from the World Energy Outlook 2016 looks at the critical interplay between water and energy, with an emphasis on the stress points that arise as the linkages between these two sectors intensify.

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.
