Tech platform logoThe International Low-Carbon Energy 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 the G8 and IEA Ministers in 2010, its activities focus on two axes of action:

  • Engagement worldwide: best practice sharing on clean energy technologies and partnership building; and
  • How2Guides: technology specific guidance for roadmap development and implementation at the national/regional level.

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.
