Key IEA Events
As the world’s leading provider of solutions, analysis, and data for the gloabl energy transition, the IEA organised a number of key events at COP23 to share its latest analysis.
In total, the IEA hosted 13 events, with IEA experts speaking in dozens of other forums. Details of these events, including agenda and presentations, are available here.
Climate change publications
IEA publishes extensively on energy and climate change issues. Explore key climate-related findings from the World Energy Outlook series, Energy Technology Perspectives 2017, market reports on Energy Efficiency and Renewables, as well as CO2 statistics and more.
The IEA has attended COPs since the first meeting (COP1) in Berlin in order to provide expert advice and support on all facets of energy policy. Explore our past pages below:
Our work on Climate change
Climate-Energy Policies for Low-Carbon Transitions
Countries around the world are embarking on transitions to sustainable energy systems. Given the complexity of these transitions, no single policy can hope to be a silver bullet; comprehensive and integrated policy packages are needed.
Tracking Transition of the Energy Sector
Energy systems are undergoing substantial changes. Tracking the progress of clean energy is essential to achieve sustainable, secure and affordable energy and to assess collective progress towards long-term goals.
Energy Transitions in Emerging Economies
A complete understanding of energy markets requires appreciating the views of all important players – their concerns, the challenges they face and the solutions they are considering. The IEA works to build good working relationships with countries beyond its membership.
IEA and the UNFCCC
The IEA promotes international collective action on climate change by supporting the UNFCCC and countries with solutions, analysis, and data for the global energy transition.
