Despite economic uncertainties, global power generation from renewable sources of energy is seen to grow by more than 40 percent to almost 6,400 terawatt-hours over the next five years, or roughly 1.5 times the current electricity production in the United States, according to a report from the International Energy Agency. Renewable energy generation from 2011 [...]
Regular readers will remember that I predicted that China would be using 247 quads by 2030, far more than the Department of Energy’s forecast of 163 quads. Is it possible they will be using even more than my pessimistic prediction? “Data from China’s National Bureau of Statistics show the total energy consumed in China in [...]
A new report by the International Energy Agency (IEA) says that coal will be the leading energy source in the world by 2022 due to the demand from India and China. “Coal’s share of the global energy mix continues to grow each year,” says IEA executive director Maria Van der Hoeven to BBC News. “If no [...]
Getting ever louder in its calls for the world to get serious about climate change, the International Energy Agency (IEA) is also increasingly concrete about what needs to be done. Global investments in renewable energy must double by 2020 to $23.9 trillion to keep global temperatures from rising beyond 2°C, says IEA in its new [...]
Both the IEA and CARMA put the number of power plants worldwide at about 50,000. Of these, the IEA carries information on about 2,300 coal-fired plants that use about 7,000 individual generators. However, Platts UDI Directory has listings for over 160,000 electricity generating power units. The typical size of a coal fired power plant is [...]
The International Energy Agency historically provides conservative estimates on projections for renewable energy. The agency has embraced the need for more clean electricity and fuels to address climate change and peak oil, but its outlook for the future is usually far more conservative than reality. When the IEA says we could get up to one [...]
The IEA world energy outlook is a yearly report that details global renewable energy industryfactors and policies moving forward based on the year’s market trends,as well as environmental factors. This year’s report outlines threescenarios: 1. the scenario that we stay at current renewable energypolicies, 2. All G20 countries follow through on their future renewableenergy policy [...]
Along with its photovoltaic solar (PV) roadmap, the International Energy Agency also released a roadmap formaximizing concentrated solar’s (CSP) global potential [pdf]. The two reports, released congruently at the Mediterranean Solar Plan conference in Valencia, Spain, depict thetwo forms of solar as working differently but harmoniously in providingthe world with clean energy — up to a [...]
Highlighting plenty of good news for solar on a global scale, the International Energy Agency (IEA) recently released a photovoltaic solarroadmap [pdf] at the Meditteranean Solar Plan conference in Valencia, Spain. High on the IEA’s agenda: the great potential for global solar toreduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, citing some big numbers. "The combination of solar photovoltaics [...]
“Whilethe details of a binding agreement may not be completely worked out inCopenhagen, it is more important than ever that participants send astrong, indicative and ambitious signal that can guide energyinvestment and policy decisions globally,” said Nobuo Tanaka, theExecutive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA), today atthe UN Climate Change Conference (COP-15) in Copenhagen.
