  • Technology Roadmap: Wind Energy

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 10, 2010
    Objective: 

    Wind energy is perhaps the most advanced of the "new" renewable energy technologies, but there is still much work to be done. This roadmap identifies the key tasks that must be undertaken in order to achieve a vision of over 2,000 GW of wind energy capacity by 2050.

  • Technology Roadmap: Energy and GHG Reductions in the Chemical Industry via Catalytic Processes

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    The roadmap looks at measures needed from the chemical industry, policymakers, investors and academia to press on with catalysis technology and unleash its potential around the globe. The report uncovers findings and best practice opportunities that illustrate how continuous improvements and breakthrough technology options can cut energy use and bring down greenhouse gas (GHG) emission rates.

  • Technology Roadmap: Energy-Efficient Buildings Heating and Cooling Equipment

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 1, 2011
    Objective: 

    The IEA Technology Roadmap Energy-Efficient Buildings: Heating and Cooling Equipment shows how technologies such as solar thermal, heat pumps, thermal energy storage and combined heat and power for buildings have the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 2 gigatonnes (Gt) by 2050--around one-quarter of today"s emissions from buildings--and save 710 million tonnes oil equivalent (Mtoe) of energy by 2050.

  • Technology Roadmap: China Wind Energy Development Roadmap 2050

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 1, 2011
    Objective: 

    This report shows how China could reach 1,000 GW of wind power by the middle of the century, an achievement that would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.5 gigatonnes per year, or roughly the equivalent of the combined carbon dioxide emissions of Germany, France and Italy in 2009. This roadmap foresees wind power capacity reaching 200 GW by 2020, 400 GW by 2030 and 1,000 GW by 2050. Wind power will be one of five main power sources and will meet 17 per cent of electricity demand.

  • Southeast Asia Energy Outlook

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 9, 2013
    Objective: 

    The 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) are--along with China and India--shifting the centre of gravity of the global energy system to Asia. Southeast Asia is an extremely diverse set of countries with vast differences in the scale and patterns of energy use and energy resource endowments. Since 1990, the region's energy demand has expanded two-and-a-half times.

  • Integration of Renewables: Status and Challenges in China

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 1, 2011
    Objective: 

    This working paper attempts to shed light on China's efforts to integrate an increasing quantity of electricity from variable renewable sources in the power systems. Its focus is on wind power, as capacity has increased rapidly and is projected to continue to increase significantly.

  • Global Action to Advance Carbon Capture and Storage

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 4, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Representing one-fifth of total global CO2 emissions currently, industrial sectors such as cement, iron and steel, chemicals and refining are expected to emit even more CO2 over the coming decades. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is currently the only large-scale mitigation option available to cut the emissions intensity of production by over 50 per cent in these sectors. To achieve decarbonisation goals, policymakers must pay more attention to industrial applications of CCS, while not undermining the global competitiveness of these sectors.

  • Reducing adverse air flow

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 4, 2017
    Objective: 

    With more than half the Earth’s population now living in urban areas, some changes in the indoor and outdoor climates of cities are bound to occur. Climate scientists’ greatest concern is traditionally the urban heat island (UHI) effect – city areas where temperatures can be several degrees higher because there is lots of concrete and little blue or green infrastructure like lakes, rivers and parks. But another effect – air flow – can also cause serious health problems.
