The Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report 2015 of the International Energy Agency (IEA) assesses the global trends in the electricity, transport and heat sectors, identifying drivers and challenges to deployment, and making projections through 2020. It also assesses the potential impacts of enhanced policy actions under an accelerated case for renewable power, which would put the world more firmly on a path to a more sustainable and secure energy system.

According to the Energy Efficiency Market Report 2014 by International Energy Agency (IEA), the global energy efficiency market is worth at least USD 310 billion a year and growing. The report confirms the position of energy efficiency as the world’s “first fuel” and finds that energy efficiency finance is becoming an established market segment, with innovative new products and standards helping to overcome risks and bring stability and confidence to the market.

Wind power and solar photovoltaics (PV) are crucial to meeting future energy needs while decarbonising the power sector. Deployment of both technologies has expanded rapidly in recent years – one of the few bright spots in an otherwise-bleak picture of clean energy progress – and IEA scenarios indicate that this trend will continue for decades. However, the inherent variability of wind power and solar PV is raising concerns: Can power systems remain reliable and cost-effective while supporting high shares of variable renewable energy (VRE)? And if so, how?

The International Energy Agency's Energy in Buildings and Communities (IEA EBC) Programme carries out world class international collaborative research and development (R&D) through open innovation. The Programme's R&D activities are working towards near-zero energy use and carbon dioxide emissions from buildings and community energy systems. The focus is on integrating efficient and sustainable technologies. This BUILD UP Web Seminar is an opportunity to:

Governments have decided collectively that the world needs to limit the average global temperature increase to no more than 2°C and international negotiations are engaged to that end. Yet any resulting agreement will not emerge before 2015 and new legal obligations will not begin before 2020. Meanwhile, despite many countries taking new actions, the world is drifting further and further from the track it needs to follow.

ETP 2012 shows:
• Current progress on clean energy deployment, and what can be done to accelerate it
• How energy security and low carbon energy are linked
• How energy systems will become more complex in the future, why systems integration is beneficial and how it can be achieved
• How demand for heating and cooling will evolve dramatically and which solutions will satisfy it
• Why flexible electricity systems are increasingly important, and how a system with smarter grids, energy storage and flexible generation can work
