    The UN Climate Change Conference COP 25 will take place under the Presidency of the Government of Chile and will be held in Madrid, with logistical support from the Government of Spain, from 2-13 December 2019. As the global energy authority, the IEA promotes climate action through cutting-edge analysis, data, expertise and policy advice that supports countries, companies and other key stakeholders. IEA analysis is key to tracking progress of global energy transitions towards Paris Agreement goals and helping drive further ambition of Nationally Determined Contributions.

    IEA Mon 09 Dec 2019 17:49

    Energy efficiency is a major driver for climate change mitigation, decoupling energy consumption and economic development. According to the projections of the International Energy Agency (IEA), it could account for nearly 40% of needed global emissions reductions. While global energy-related CO2 emissions grew 1.7% in 2018 to reach a historic high of 33.1 Gt CO2, energy efficiency was still the largest brake on emissions growth. Nonetheless, a slowdown in implementing energy efficiency policies in recent years contributed to global CO2 emissions continuing to rise in 2017 and 2018, contrary to the trajectory needed for the Paris Agreement.

    Although energy efficiency cannot be directly seen, it has a long-standing successful experience and it is necessary to unlock this potential by all countries. Policies and regulations can catalyse action from both the private and public sector in terms of energy efficiency and discovering how to consume less energy.


  • "Roundtable: SDG7" Taking stock of progress & identifying solutions, focusing on electricity access that can help accelerate action towards achieving SDG7 for a prosperous, climate-safe future for all. ? Global Climate Action ? 16:30 - 18:00 Link
    IEA Mon 09 Dec 2019 17:49

    Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) calls for ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all by 2030 through the achievement of three targets, namely ensuring universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services; increasing substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix; and doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency. Touching nearly all aspects of society, access to energy is a prerequisite for the achievement of other SDGs. Achieving SDG7 in the context of the Paris Agreement on climate change means a rethink on how we produce, distribute and consume energy. According to Tracking SDG7: The Energy Progress Report , the world is making progress towards achieving SDG7, but is falling short of meeting the goal to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all by 2030. A sense of urgency is lacking. This event will take stock of progress and identify...

  • "High-level Regional Launch of #WEO19" Exploring divergences between WEO scenarios that map out different routes the world could follow over the coming decades. ? Chile Pavilion ? 13:05 - 13:30 Link
    IEA Mon 09 Dec 2019 17:49

    Deep disparities define today’s energy world. The dissonance between well-supplied oil markets and growing geopolitical tensions and uncertainties. The gap between the ever-higher amounts of greenhouse gas emissions being produced and the insufficiency of stated policies to curb those emissions in line with international climate targets. The gap between the promise of energy for all and the lack of electricity access for 850 million people around the world.

    The World Energy Outlook 2019, the International Energy Agency’s flagship publication, explores these widening fractures in detail. It explains the impact of today’s decisions on tomorrow’s energy systems, and describes a pathway that enables the world to meet climate, energy access and air quality goals while maintaining a strong focus on the reliability and affordability of energy for a growing global population.

    This event will explore different trajectories and introduce diverse solutions to...

  • "Clean Energy Transition Pathways & Tracking Progress with Paris Agreement Implementation" Introducing the latest analyses on clean energy transition pathways. ? Room 6 ? 11:30 - 13:00 Link
    IEA Mon 09 Dec 2019 17:49

    Energy production and use constitutes the largest source of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions globally. Identifying long-term strategies towards clean energy transition and tracking progress in energy-related emissions and their underlying drivers are therefore essential to achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

    IEA and TERI have provided pathways for decarbonisation and sustainable development in key energy sectors. For instance, IEA’s Sustainable Development Scenario (SDS) lays out a pathway for how the world’s energy sector can change course to deliver key energy-related sustainable development goals, including on climate change. In addition to the pathways, tracking tools based on the latest data and rigorous analysis across all fuels and technologies help countries identify the current status and support development of recommendations for action.

    The event will introduce the latest analyses on clean energy transition pathways and...

  • "Key challenges & solutions in the transition to electric mobility" Identifying recent developments in electric mobility across the globe, discussing key challenges, & suggesting solutions to address them. ? Korea Pavilion ? 10:45 - 12:00 Link
    IEA Mon 09 Dec 2019 17:49

    Electric mobility is expanding at a rapid pace. In 2018, the global electric car fleet exceeded 5.1 million, up 2 million from the previous year and almost doubling the number of new electric car sales.

    Policies play a critical role. Leading countries in electric mobility use a variety of measures such as fuel economy standards coupled with incentives for zero- and low-emissions vehicles, economic instruments that help bridge the cost gap between electric and conventional vehicles and support for the deployment of charging infrastructure. Increasingly, policy support is being extended to address the strategic importance of the battery technology value chain.

    This side event will identify recent developments in electric mobility across the globe. It will also discuss key challenges in the transition to electric mobility and suggest solutions that are well suited to address them. In particular, the event will highlight effective policy frameworks to accelerate...

    IEA Mon 09 Dec 2019 12:34

    The Global Commission for Urgent Action on Energy Efficiency was established on 24 June 2019 at the IEA’s 4th annual Global Conference on Energy Efficiency in Dublin, Ireland. The Commission currently has 21 members and is composed of national leaders, current and former ministers, top business executives and global thought leaders.

    With analytical support from the IEA, Commission members will examine how progress on energy efficiency can be rapidly accelerated through new and stronger policy action by governments across the globe. It will develop a series of actionable recommendations that will be announced in the summer of 2020.

    The Commission's work comes at a critical moment in clean energy transitions around the world. Despite energy efficiency's tremendous potential, the world is struggling to capture its full benefits. Global energy demand continues to increase and CO2 emissions are at record levels. Meanwhile, energy...
