Net Zero by 2050- A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector
The latest report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) shows that major government actions are needed immediately to ensure the opportunity of net-zero emissions by 2050 is not lost.
This special report is the world’s first comprehensive study of how to transition to a net zero energy system by 2050 while ensuring stable and affordable energy supplies, providing universal energy access, and enabling robust economic growth.
It sets out a cost-effective and economically productive pathway, resulting in a clean, dynamic and resilient energy economy dominated by renewables like solar and wind instead of fossil fuels. The report also examines key uncertainties, such as the roles of bioenergy, carbon capture and behavioural changes in reaching net zero.
