IEA - International Energy Agency

  In this inaugural annual report on energy investments around the world, the International Energy Agency (IEA) looks at the lifeblood of the global energy system: investment. The ability to attract and direct capital flows is vital to transitioning to a low-carbon economy while also maintaining energy security and expanding energy access worldwide. The success or failure of energy policies can be measured by their ability to mobilise investments.

According to data recently released by the International Energy Agency (IEA), between 2013 and 2014, the world production of renewable energy grew by 2.6% representing around 1/7 of the total Primary Energy Supply (TPES) of 13,700 Mtoe.   Since 1990, the market share of renewable energy has been continuously growing at an average annual rate of 2.2%, higher than the 1.9% growth rate of TPES. Renewables are now the second largest source (22.3%) of global electricity generation (right after coal).

The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) June 2016 report on Energy and Air pollution identifies air pollution as the world’s no. 4 threat to human health. The report underlines that most of the roots and cures are to be found in the energy sector. As a consequence, the building sector which represents 40% of all energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions should be the first point of action. It is widely known that building insulation can bring significant energy savings; CO2 reductions; higher energy security; higher employment and increased competitiveness.
