About the 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 among its member and partner countries, the business community and other international organisations.
Created by IEA Ministers in 2010, the Technology Platform focuses its activities on three axes of action:
- Engagement worldwide: sharing best practice 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.
