IEA study shows energy sector’s distance from climate targets

A study from the International Energy Agency (IEA) has found that only four of the 38 energy technologies and sectors examined last year were on track to achieve long-term climate and air pollution targets.

The study included energy technologies such as solar, wind, nuclear, coal and gas, as well as energy-intensive sectors including transport, chemicals and aluminium. All were examined for their progress in assisting international goals to prevent rises in global temperatures, deliver universal energy access and lower pollution levels.
