Tracking Clean Energy Progress
Source: International Energy Agency
From the publication web page:
Tracking Clean Energy Progress, released on 25 April, is an early excerpt of the forthcoming Energy Technology Perspectives 2012 (ETP2012) (to be released in June 2012). The report tracks progress in the development and deployment of clean energy and energy efficiency technologies in the power generation, industry, buildings, and transport sectors. Progess is assessed against rates required to achieve a [two degrees Celsius] limit in global temperature rise (referred to as the "2 degree scenario" or "2DS").
The report finds that while some progress has been made, most clean energy technologies are not on track to make their required contribution to reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and thereby provide a more secure energy system. It also highlights that getting back on track is possible, if timely and significant policy action is taken.
