Launch of Energy Technology Perspectives 2010

The IEA has just launched a new edition of Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP). The study presents updated scenarios from the present to 2050 that show which new technologies will be most important in key sectors and in different regions of the world for achieving the goal of halving global CO2 emissions by 2050.

Presenting ETP 2010 in Washington DC, IEA Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka said “after sowing the seeds for such a revolution in our last edition in 2008 by demonstrating that greater reliance on low-carbon technologies can transform the way we produce and use energy, ETP 2010 now highlights the first ‘green shoots’ of what could become such a fundamental change.” But he emphasised that current developments are still fragmented and fragile, and the rate of progress is still far too low to prevent dangerous increases in global temperatures.
