With the goal of providing a Workshop Report and timely input to IEA, first, for the CEM Progress Report and, second, for a longer-term framework of enhanced progress monitoring metrics, what have we learned regarding the Questions below?
Moderator, with Members of the EGRD and Guests
Objective 1 -- Input to Progress Report
Compared to ETP Blue Map scenarios, from present day to 2050, which technologies appear to be making progress as expected, and which are not?
What are the major barriers to inhibiting greater development and deployment? Can these be characterized by categories, such as: (a) policy; (b) socio-economic; and © technical and/or cost?
What would be the most important messages for the audience (IEA Member Countries, Clean Energy Ministers, etc.)?
What are the most important actions that IEA Member Countries might take to address barriers?
For technical and cost-reduction barriers, what are the most fruitful areas or opportunities for enhanced R&D cooperation to address technologies that are not progressing as expected?
Objective 2 -- Enhanced Metrics Framework
What metrics are most meaningful and indicative of progress, and can they form a real-time set of leading indicators that would signal need for action
What are the elements of an effective, integrated framework for monitoring, evaluating and communicating progress on key technologies?
What lessons can be learned from the private sector, or from public-private partnerships in monitoring progress on technology development and commercialization?
What approaches are most effective in communicating results to inform decision-making, feed into the prioritization or restructuring of research investments and related policies, and achieve desired outcome?
