Rise in global gas demand predicted

  The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that the global natural gas market will undergo a major transformation driven by new supplies coming from the United States to meet growing demand in developing economies. The evolution of the role of natural gas in the global energy mix has far-reaching consequences on energy trade, air quality and […]

Electric vehicles have another record year

  The global electric car stock, primarily composed of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), surpassed 2-million units in 2016. This is an increase of 60% from 2015 sales, indicating rapid market evolution. Electric vehicles (EVs) have the capacity to increase energy efficiency, diversify transport energy carriers, and play a role […]

Producing industrial hydrogen from renewable energy

  Producing hydrogen requires a large amount of energy which is usually generated from carbon-emitting technologies such as coal-fired power stations. This article proposes a return to the way hydrogen used to be produced – by electrolysis of water, powered by renewable energy sources. Over 60-million tonnes of hydrogen is produced every year for a […]

Examining the critical interplay between digital and energy systems

  The growing use of information and communications technology – digitalisation – is increasingly permeating modern life, from the way people work and travel to the way they live and entertain. Digitalisation is increasingly having an impact on energy systems, bringing both the potential for substantial efficiency and system improvements and raising new policy issues. […]

Next generation wind and solar power: from cost to value

  Wind and solar photovoltaics (PV) are currently the fastest-growing sources of electricity globally. In 2015, their additional annual generation met almost all incremental demand for electricity. This is the executive summary of a new report from the International Energy Agency (IEA). Click here to download the full report Variable renewable energy (VRE) costs, especially […]

Getting wind and sun onto the grid

  Wind and solar PV capacity has grown very rapidly in many countries, thanks to supportive policy, and dramatic falls in technology cost. By the end of 2015, these technologies – collectively referred to as variable renewable energy (VRE) – had reached double-digit shares of annual electricity generation in ten countries. This is the executive […]

Beyond one-million electric cars

  In 2015 the global threshold of 1-million electric cars on the road was exceeded, with the final figure reaching 1,26-million. This is a symbolic achievement highlighting significant efforts deployed jointly by a number of governments and industries over the past ten years. This the executive summary of the IEA’s Global EV outlook 2016 report.  […]

IEA report: Energy Efficiency Market Report 2016

  The International Energy Agency (IEA) has published a report on global energy intensity which shows that although energy intensity fell in 2015, the rate of progress needs to accelerate much more if sustainability targets are to be achieved. This is the executive summary of the report The full report is available here Global energy […]
