With 2-degree target adrift, IEA report calls for tripling public spending on low-carbon technology R&D More »»
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.
