Although the new renewable energy directive (REDII) set compromise minimum targets helping to decarbonise the transport sector, the EU executive reserves the right to take action on the matter again if necessary, a Commission official has said.
Global carbon emissions will rise to a new record level in 2018, making the chances of reaching a target to keep temperature increases to 1.5 or 2°C "weaker and weaker every year, every month," the head of the International Energy Agency (IEA) has said.
The International Energy Agency has wrongly guided governments into decisions about oil, gas and coal use that are inconsistent with the long-term climate objectives of the Paris Agreement, according to a new report out on Thursday (5 April).
Europe has been the “saving grace” of global oil demand, which is expected to be higher than forecast in 2016, but that is under threat from uncertainty caused by Brexit, the International Energy Agency has warned today (13 July).
The European Union could take advantage of a massive boom in liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports over the next five years, coupled with low global gas demand and prices, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has said.
Pledges on greenhouse gas emissions made ahead of landmark climate talks in December will result in a dramatic slowdown in the growth of carbon from the energy sector - but will not reverse it within the next 15 years, the world’s energy watchdog said on Wednesday (21 October).
Governments must not chop and change their political support for renewable energy, which by 2020 will generate more electricity that the combined demand of China, India, and Brazil, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has warned.
Global energy saving investments - and their effects on energy demand - are now equal to the net contribution of other fuel sources, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said on 16 October, as it launched its inaugural Energy Efficiency Market Report.
The EU has taken a global lead on energy efficiency policies but still has a long way to go if it is to reap the full benefits, argue Caroline Lucas, Anders Wijkman and other signatories from the energy savings coalition.
Fuel consumption could be halved in 20 years' time if the right policies are put in place, despite an expected doubling in the number of cars in circulation worldwide, according to the International Energy Agency.
Trillions of euros in investment in clean-energy technology are needed worldwide by mid-century to control rising carbon emissions, says a new report that could help shape the debate on some of Europe’s most controversial energy policies.
