Energy Technology Roadmap Workshop


IEA, Paris: 15 May 2008 - 16 May 2008

Organiser: IEA Experts' Group on R&D Priority Setting and Evaluation

Background

Technology roadmaps can help industry, academic and research groups, civil society, and governments to identify and prioritise strategic R&D and investment needed to achieve technology development goals. The IEA developed roadmaps for key technologies as part of its analysis of scenarios and strategies to achieve a sustainable energy by 2050. Results are presented in Energy Technologies Perspectives 2008 which will be released in June at the G8 Energy Ministers meeting in Japan. The IEA plans to further develop technology roadmaps as a mean to identify where international collaboration can accelerate energy technology development. To inform this effort it is timely to take stock of different approaches and lessons learned from various technology roadmap exercises.

The IEA Expert Group on R&D Priority Setting and Evaluation and the IEA Secretariat will convene a workshop on 15-16 May where international experts will share experiences and discuss approaches to energy technology roadmaps. The workshop will draw on experts with hands-on experience in roadmap design and analysis from governments, industry, academia and international organisations.
