IEA report says business-as-usual approach must be overhauled to cope with global shift to electricity Taking on the challenges of an increasingly electrified world
The IEA believes that the world needs a clean energy revolution in order to break dependence on fossil fuels. Such a revolution would enhance global energy security, promote enduring economic growth and tackle environmental challenges such as climate change. It would break the long-standing link between economic growth and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. But to succeed, it must also be truly global in scope.
The IEA research and analysis of clean energy technologies – which include renewable energy, electric vehicles, nuclear power and biofuels – focuses on ways to boost demand and deployment so that the clean energy revolution can be achieved.
