IEA Pushing for Offshore Wind Energy (Int'l Report)
International Energy Agency
Date: 2019-05-15
At a recent high-level workshop on offshore wind energy, the International Energy Agency (IEA) noted technological improvements for offshore wind are improving performance and lowering the costs of the electricity it produces, and thus drawing interest from global markets. IEA added that tapping the potential of offshore wind alongside other low-carbon technologies will be critical to achieving global sustainable development goals.

The workshop covered the current status of and regional policy plans for the development of offshore wind, along with the key opportunities for accelerating deployment and the main challenges constraining growth. It took place in support of the first in-depth look at offshore wind in the World Energy Outlook (WEO), the IEA's flagship publication.

"(Energy) Efficiency can enable economic growth, reduce emissions and improve energy security. The right efficiency policies could enable the world to achieve more than 40 pct of the emissions cuts needed to reach its climate goals without new technology." -- Fatih Birol, Executive Director, IEA, Oct., 2018 Contact: International Energy Agency, Dr. Faith Birol, Exec.

Energy Efficiency 2018 - Analysis & Outlooks to 2040 (Report Attached)
IEA
Date: 2018-11-02
"Energy efficiency can bring significant economic, social and environmental benefits. But while energy efficiency is improving around the world, its positive impact on global energy use is overwhelmed by rising economic activity across all sectors.

"Energy Efficiency 2018 looks at why efficiency's massive potential remains untapped, and through the new Efficient World Scenario explores what would happen if countries maximized all available cost-effective efficiency potential between now and 2040, highlighting what policy makers can do to realize this opportunity."

ARENA Foresees Tumbling Wind, Solar Costs (Int'l Report)
International Renewable Energy Agency
Date: 2018-01-24
According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), solar PV costs are expected to be halved from the current levels by 2020, undercutting, fossil fuels by generating in the range from 3 to 10 cents/kWh range. IRENA suggests this will be driven by rising investments in clean power projects, which will in turn cut the cost of energy for consumers.

ARENA predicted movements toward the "lowest costs yet" for both solar and wind power between now and 2020, with global average costs set to drop to between $0.06/kWh and $0.10/kWh for both wind and solar.

Energy Efficiency Policies Cut Global Power Demand 11 pct in 2016, says IEA (Ind. Report)
IEA
Date: 2017-06-30
The International Energy Agency (IEA), a Paris-headquartered think tank reports that 11 pct of global energy demand was cut last year through the energy efficiency policies of many countries.

According to the IEA's Faith Birol, "If energy consumption growth is slowing in many countries, it is thanks to energy-efficiency policies that tamper demand growth as more value and productivity is extracted from each unit of energy." The implication being that many economies can still see growth without a parallel rise in energy demand. Birol said the 11 pct energy saved is the equivalent of the total energy demand in the European Union.

CEM-8, IEA Affirms Importance of CCS, CCUS Development (Int'l)
International Energy Agency
Date: 2017-06-09
At the recently concluded International Energy Agency (IEA) 8th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM-8) meeting in Beijing, China, the energy ministers of Canada, China, Norway, and the United States, along with delegations from Australia , the European Commission, industry and key organizations, joined together to collaborate on driving further deployment of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS). The countries represented in the discussion host 19 of the 22 CCS and CCUS projects currently in operation or under construction globally.

U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said, "I don't believe you can have a real conversation about clean energy without including CCUS. We have already seen the success of projects like Petra Nova in Texas, which is the world's largest post-combustion carbon-capture system," Sec. Perry said. The system at Petra Nova can capture 1.6 million tpy of CO2 from an existing coal-fired power plant unit, a capture rate of up to 90 pct from a supplied slipstream of flue gas.

According to IEA Exec. Dir. Dr. Faith Birol, "Investment has flowed to CCUS projects where there is a confluence of factors which constitute a viable business case. We need to find more such opportunities, where a commercial case for CCS can be built with reasonably modest well targeted public interventions."
