Renewable energy has grown rapidly in recent years, especially in the electricity sector where renewables now account for the largest power capacity additions globally. However, renewables still account for only just above 10% of final energy consumption and the energy sector remains dominated by fossil fuels.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Low Carbon Economy Index (LCEI) 2018 finds that national decarbonization rates do not match the level needed to achieve commitments under the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Egypt’s economic development hinges on the energy sector. To meet burgeoning energy demand, the government’s Integrated Sustainable Energy Strategy, ISES 2035, involves stepping up the use of renewables and improving energy efficiency in the power sector.

India, under the Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), has set an ambitious target to achieve installed capacity of 175GW of renewable energy by 2022, including 100GW of solar power. Of that, the government aims for 60 GW to be utility-scale solar, and the rest to be rooftop solar.

This study assesses the potential for manufacturing renewable energy components in Jordan, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates. All three countries possess strong market potential, combined with existing industrial assets and a degree of prior experience with renewable-based power generation.

This report analyses how the interplay between risks, policies, and market developments has shaped renewable energy capacity addition in India, and identifies gaps that need to be addressed. As of 2017, India has the world’s fourth largest installed wind capacity and the sixth largest installed solar capacity.

The Energy Data report presents actions for G20 countries and beyond to boost the quality and comprehensiveness of energy data to support energy policies, in a more and more digitalized, decentralised and consumer focused world, as well as energy market transparency, and was prepared in collaboration of IEF, IRENA and OLADE.

This report is the contribution by the International Energy Agency to the 2018 Meeting of G7 Environment, Energy and Oceans Ministers.

The Energy Transitions report provides an update on sustainable development trends in G20 countries. The report provides a status update on the state of play of energy efficiency, renewable energy and clean energy technologies and investment in G20 countries.

The peak in fossil fuel demand will have a dramatic impact on financial markets in the 2020s. The global energy system is transitioning from a system mainly based on fossil fuels to one mainly based on renewable energy sources.
