Climate-Energy Policies for Low-Carbon Transitions
Countries around the world are embarking on transitions to sustainable energy systems. Given the complexity of these transitions, no single policy can hope to be a silver bullet; comprehensive and integrated policy packages are needed.
Tracking Transition of the Energy Sector
Energy systems are undergoing substantial changes. Tracking the progress of clean energy is essential to achieve sustainable, secure and affordable energy and to assess collective progress towards long-term goals.
Energy Transitions in Emerging Economies
A complete understanding of energy markets requires appreciating the views of all important players – their concerns, the challenges they face and the solutions they are considering. The IEA works to build good working relationships with countries beyond its membership.
IEA and the UNFCCC
The IEA promotes international collective action on climate change by supporting the UNFCCC and countries with solutions, analysis, and data for the global energy transition.
