Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP) is the International Energy Agency’s most ambitious publication on new developments in energy technology. It demonstrates how technologies – from electric vehicles to smart grids – can make a decisive difference in achieving the objective of limiting the global temperature rise to 2°C and enhancing energy security.

ETP 2012 presents scenarios and strategies to 2050, with the aim of guiding decision makers on energy trends and what needs to be done to build a clean, secure and competitive energy future.

Clients who purchase ETP 2012 also get access to all figures (and the data behind them) in electronic format, downloadable from the IEA website.

ETP 2012 shows:

• Current progress on clean energy deployment, and what can be done to accelerate it

• How energy security and low carbon energy are linked

How energy systems will become more complex in the future, why systems integration is beneficial and how it can be achieved

• How demand for heating and cooling will evolve dramatically and which solutions will satisfy it

• Why flexible electricity systems are increasingly important, and how a system with smarter grids, energy storage and flexible generation can work

• Why hydrogen could play a big role in the energy system of the future

• Why fossil fuels will not disappear but will see their roles change, and what it means for the energy system as a whole

• What is needed to realise the potential of carbon capture and storage (CCS)

• Whether available technologies can allow the world to have zero energy related emissions by 2075 – which seems a necessary condition for the world to meet the 2°C target

Global scenarios to 2050 are the backbone of ETP, and the 2012 edition features detailed scenarios for nine world regions.
