Panelists in this webinar-based training discussed the 2014 edition of Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP 2014). Starting from the premise that electricity will be an increasingly important component of energy systems of the future, ETP 2014 examines in depth what must be done to provide sustainable options for generation, distribution and end-use consumption. It offers a comprehensive, long-term analysis of trends in the energy sector—and of the technologies that are essential to achieving an affordable, secure and low-carbon energy system. In addition to modelling the global outlook up to the year 2050 under different scenarios, ETP 2014 incorporates the IEA’s annual progress report on global efforts to engineer a clean-energy transformation.
