“Recovery plans rooted in the energy transition represent a far-sighted investment.” So claims Irena, the International Renewable Energy Agency.
Sustainable Recovery may be the most significant report ever produced by the IEA and the reason why is that the agency was partnered by the International Monetary Fund.
The coronavirus pandemic has triggered the “largest drop in global energy investment in history”, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has said, launching its World Energy Investment 2020 report.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has called for the OPEC-led group to take more production offline and faster than previously agreed.
Actions taken by producer states under the OPEC+ banner, coupled with moving oil into storage, should see a stock draw of 4.7 million barrels per day in the second half of 2020, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has said in its recent Oil Market Report (OMR).
Oil headed for its first weekly gain since early January after prices found a floor amid uncertainty over how the coronavirus will play out and whether OPEC+ will respond with additional production cuts.
Global emissions from energy held steady in 2019 for the first time in three years. But the restraint all came from the U.S. and Europe as developing countries boosted use of the most polluting fossil fuels.
Rapid and widespread changes are needed across the world's energy systems to tackle climate change and ensure sustainable development, experts have said.
The struggle to provide Africa with energy will become increasingly important, particularly in terms of balancing power with carbon emissions, a new report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) has said.
The seven majors must cut production by 35% by 2040, and emissions by 40%, if the world is to warm by only 1.6 degrees Celsius, according to a new report from Carbon Tracker Initiative.
The South African government has published its Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) with the aim of setting out the country’s future energy mix.
An influx of new offshore wind farms around the world is set to draw $840 billion of investments over the next two decades, the International Energy Agency said.
Oil price predictions always end in disaster but complacency in the market poses a number of risks, given global uncertainty.
Oil held its decline from the dramatic spike earlier in the week as supply assurances from Saudi Arabia and the International Energy Agency calmed the market after the devastating weekend attacks.

In the week or so before I sat down at my desk to write this column, four important and potentially linked events took place.
Carbon emissions from fossil fuel use hit a record last year after energy demand grew at its fastest pace in a decade, reflecting higher oil consumption in the U.S. and more coal burning in China and India.
Global oil demand remains on course to be stronger this year than in 2018 as a boost from lower fuel prices counters slowing economic activity, according to the International Energy Agency.
Governments must make decisions "as of today" to drive the world towards clean energy in a bid to cut carbon emissions and improve air quality, the International Energy Agency has said.
Driving electric cars and scrapping your natural gas-fired boiler won’t make a dent in global carbon emissions, and may even increase pollution levels.
