    This commentary is derived from analysis that will be published on 13 November 2019 in the forthcoming World Energy Outlook 2019.

    With major automakers announcing new electric car models at a regular pace, there has been growing interest in recent years about the impact of electric vehicles on the overall car market, as well as global oil demand, carbon emissions, and air pollution.

    Carmakers plan more than 350 electric models by 2025, mostly small-to-medium variants. Plans from the top 20 car manufacturers suggest a tenfold increase in annual electric car sales, to 20 million vehicles a year by 2030, from 2 million in 2018. Starting from a low base, less than 0.5% of the total car stock, this growth in electric vehicles means that nearly 7% of the car fleet will be electric by 2030.

    Meanwhile, the conventional car market has been showing signs of fatigue, with sales declining in 2018 and 2019, due to slowing economies. Global sales of...

    IEA Wed 16 Oct 2019 15:40

    Major shifts are occurring in the global energy system due to the rapid spread of technologies, including energy storage, wind turbines and solar panels. Amid such innovation and change, energy efficiency has emerged as a key area. Although less visible than vast wind farms or eye-catching electric cars, energy efficiency is no less important for the health of people, the environment and the economy.

    Energy efficiency brings many benefits to our daily lives: cars that run further on less fuel, lower heating bills for better insulated homes and the smoother operation of factories that make more products while using less electricity. There is still a great deal of room for improvements in energy efficiency across every country and every sector of the global economy which can have a large impact on progress towards sustainable energy goals – all using cost-effective technologies that are already available.

    Korea is continuing to forge ahead with its...

    The International Energy Agency is inviting input from people around the world on ways to jump-start progress on energy efficiency. The contributions will help to inform the work of the Global Commission for Urgent Action on Energy Efficiency.

    Established earlier this year, the Global Commission now has 21 members, including national leaders, current and former ministers, top business executives and global thought leaders. It will produce recommendations for new and stronger policy action by governments.

    By completing a brief online survey, interested parties have the opportunity to provide valuable input to inform the discussions of the Global Commission as it works to develop its final recommendations.

    “The benefits of energy efficiency are indisputable, but more action is needed to realise its full potential. These discussions are the perfect opportunity to identify how to accelerate progress,” said Dr Brian Motherway, the IEA’s Head of...

    The IEA is holding its first ever Training Week on energy efficiency in Sub-Saharan Africa this week. The training, which is running from 14 to 17 October in Pretoria, South Africa, has brought together 150 policy makers from 33 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, and aims to equip them with knowledge and skills to deliver effective energy efficiency initiatives in their respective countries.

    Ambassadors and senior representatives from international organisations are also in attendance and will share their perspectives for Africa. In addition, representatives from leading African efficiency organisations will highlight the importance of regional collaboration.

    This is the 12th Training Week organised as part of the IEA’s Energy Efficiency in Emerging Economies (E4) programme. Including this week, the E4 programme has trained over 1500 professionals from more than 110 countries on the essentials of energy efficiency policy making.

    IEA Mon 14 Oct 2019 09:48

    Integrating higher shares of variable renewable energy (VRE) technologies, such as wind and solar PV, in power systems is essential for decarbonising the power sector while continuing to meet growing demand for energy. Thanks to sharply falling costs and supportive policies, VRE deployment has expanded dramatically in recent years. However, the inherent variability of wind and solar PV power generation raises challenges for power systems operators and regulators.

  • Around 230 million tonnes of CO2 are used every year to produce fertiliser, food, beverages, and more. But new opportunities to turn CO2 into fuels, chemicals & building materials could see this market grow? Link
    IEA Mon 14 Oct 2019 08:03

    New opportunities to use carbon dioxide (CO2) in the development of products and services are capturing the attention of governments, industry and the investment community. Climate change mitigation is the primary driver for this increased interest, but other factors include technology leadership and supporting a circular economy. This analysis considers the near-term market potential for five key categories of CO2-derived products and services: fuels, chemicals, building materials from minerals, building materials from waste, and CO2 use to enhance the yields of biological processes.

    While some technologies are still at an early stage of development, all five categories could individually be scaled-up to a market size of at least 10 MtCO2/yr – almost as much as the current CO2 demand for food and beverages – but most face commercial and regulatory barriers. CO2 use can support climate goals where the application is scalable, uses low-carbon energy and displaces a...
