World Energy Transitions Outlook (IRENA)


The World Energy Transitions Outlook preview outlines a pathway for the world to achieve the Paris Agreement goals and halt the pace of climate change by transforming the global energy landscape. This preview presents options to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C and bring CO2 emissions closer to net zero by mid-century, offering high-level insights on technology choices, investment needs and the socio-economic contexts of achieving a sustainable, resilient and inclusive energy future.

Among key findings - Renewable power, green hydrogen and modern bioenergy will dominate the world of energy of the future; targeted use of sustainably sourced biomass would be part of the needed combination of technologies to keep on a 1.5°C climate pathway.
