Energy Security and Sustainability
Today, we are already witnessing the early signs of a historic transition towards an energy revolution. We see solar photovoltaic technology developing everywhere, the electric vehicle is coming, heat pumps and CCS projects are moving forward. But further challenges lie ahead. A massive de-carbonization of the global economy is needed and the investment of USD 46 trillion will be necessary to achieve a halving of the world’s CO2 emissions by 2050. The transition to a low-carbon economy will not only tackle climate change, but can also provide energy security benefits for many countries that are heavily dependent on fossil energy imports. Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka discusses these and other issues addressed through the International Energy Agency’s latest analysis on global energy.
