Four energy policies can keep the 2C climate goal alive - IEA

Four energy policies can keep the 2C climate goal alive - IEA

Warning that the world is not on track to limit the global temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has urged governments to swiftly enact four energy policies that would keep climate goals alive without harming economic growth.

“Climate change has quite frankly slipped to the back burner of policy priorities. But the problem is not going away ? quite the opposite,” IEA Executive Director Maria van der Hoeven said in London at the launch of World Energy Outlook Special Report, Redrawing the Energy-Climate Map, which highlights the need for intensive action between 2020.

Noting that the energy sector accounts for around two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions, she added: “This report show that the path we are currently on is more likely to result in a temperature increase between 3.6C and 5.3C but also finds that much more can be done to tackle energy-sector emissions without jeopardizing economic growth, and important concern for may governments.

The new IEA report presents the results of a “4-for-2C Scenario”, in which for energy policies are selected that can deliver significant emissions by 2020, rely only on existing technologies and have been already been adapted successfully in several countries. In the 4-for-2C scenario, global energy related greenhouse gas emissions are 8% lower than 2020 than the level expected otherwise.
