The International Energy Agency-IEA’s newly-enhanced Tracking Clean Energy Progress provides a comprehensive and rigorous assessment of a full range of energy technologies and sectors that are critical in a global clean-energy transition. It includes the most up-to-date information for where technologies are today and where they need to be according to the IEA’s Sustainable Development Scenario, a pathway to reach the Paris Agreement well below 2°C climate goal, deliver universal energy access and significantly lower air pollution.
Some technologies have made tremendous progress in 2017 – particularly solar PV, LEDs and EVs – but most are not on track. Energy efficiency improvements have slowed and progress on key technologies like carbon capture and storage remains stalled. The Tracking Clean Energy Progress allows to visualize a detailed assessment of recent trends and progress of a wide range of sectors and technologies.
