  • Non-individual Transport: Paving the Way for Renewable Power-to-Gas (RE-P2G)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, July 1, 2016

    The objective of this study is to identify (1) how renewable power-to-gas technologies might contribute to the decarbonisation of the non-individual transport sector, (2) the possible limitations on electricity supply and (3) the policy instruments that would most efficiently support market uptake. The study focuses on large-scale deployment opportunities for renewable power-to-gas rather than niche applications in project specific contexts.

  • Energy Efficiency Indicators Highlights 2016

    Type: 
    Publication

    This statistical report is designed to help readers understand what drives final energy use in IEA member countries in order to improve and track national energy efficiency policies. It provides the first comprehensive selection of data that the IEA has been collecting each year after its member states recognized in 2009 the need to better monitor energy efficiency policies. The report includes country-specific analysis of end uses across the largest sectors: residential, services, industry and transport.
