International Low-Carbon Energy Technology Platform


‌The International Low-Carbon Energy Technology Platform (Technology Platform) is the IEA’s chief tool for multilateral engagement on clean technologies between its Member and Partner countries, the business community and international organisations.

Created by IEA Ministers in 2010, Technology Platform activities focus on three axes of action:

  • Engagement worldwide: best practice sharing on clean energy technologies and partnership building
  • How2Guides: technology specific guidance for roadmap development and implementation at the national/regional level
  • Cross-cutting analysis on selected themes relevant to multilateral collaboration on low-carbon energy technologies

In its activities, the Technology Platform aims to promote technologies that foster significant reductions in CO2, in order to help governments meet the goal of limiting the rise in global temperatures, in accordance with the IEA 2 degree scenario.
