 20180111 Commentary: The clean energy transition requires action on electricity demand

Ист.: International Energy Agency

As a fundamental rule, electricity supply and demand must be balanced at all times. Traditionally, this has been achieved by adjusting electricity supply to match demand that varies at different times of the day. But this poses a problem as the share of power generation from variable renewables such as wind and solar PV rises. Demand-side response is one of ...

 20171223 Commentary: Heating Chinese cities while enhancing air quality

Ист.: International Energy Agency

China’s district heat network – which supplies heat from central locations – is the world’s largest: in 2015, it consumed more energy than all of the United Kingdom. But district heating is also major source of air pollution in many Chinese cities. The beginning of the winter season usually coincides with a surge in air pollution, mostly due to coal-...

 20171221 Commentary: Fossil-fuel consumption subsidies are down, but not out

Ист.: International Energy Agency

This commentary was written by Toshiyuki Shirai and Zakia Adam from the World Energy Outlook team. Getting energy prices right is critical for sound policymaking. But because of government energy subsidies prices that consumers pay in many countries are often well below their real market value, let alone the price that would reflect energy’s full enviro...

 20171220 Commentary: Bringing electricity to all corners of Southeast Asia

Ист.: International Energy Agency

Providing electricity access for all remains a critical topic in many parts of the developing world. The challenge is especially acute in Southeast Asia, one of the most dynamic regions of the global energy system, but whose rich and varied environment defies one-size-fits-all energy solutions. Thanks to growing economies and burgeoning and urbanising mid...

 20171219 Coal demand to remain flat to 2022, resulting in a decade of stagnation

Ист.: International Energy Agency

Global demand for coal should remain nearly flat between 2017 and 2022, resulting in a decade of stagnation for coal consumption, according to the International Energy Agency’s annual coal market report. Global coal consumption fell 1.9% to 5,357 million tonnes of coal equivalent (Mtce) last year, the second year of decline, because of lower gas prices,...

 20171216 Commentary: Changing utility business models and electricity investment in Europe

Ист.: International Energy Agency

The following commentary was written by IEA Energy Investment Analysts Michael Waldron and Yoko Nobuoka. The traditional utility business model of selling electricity from large-scale thermal power plants and expanding grids to meet rising demand historically has supported strong balance sheets. With this financial strength, utility retained earnings serv...

 20171215 OMR: Happy New Year?

Ист.: International Energy Agency

This week’s closure of the Forties pipeline network that carries about 400 kb/d of North Sea oil added momentum to Brent crude oil prices that have settled above $60/bbl since the end of October. For the time being, in response to the Forties pipeline incident, we have reduced our estimate for UK production in December by 300 kb/d, and we will revisit...

 20171212 Commentary: Unlocking energy savings from buildings

Ист.: International Energy Agency

The past decade has seen major changes across the energy sector, from the emergence of solar PV or shale oil and gas to electric vehicles and high-efficiency lighting. But one sector has seen very little change. The building sector represents about 30% of global final energy use, and its energy-savings potential is massive. For now, however, it represents...

 20171109 Commentary: Renewable energy offers cost-effective options to cut carbon emissions from industry

Ист.: International Energy Agency

Reducing long-term greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the industry sector is one of the toughest challenges of the energy transition. Combustion and process emissions from cement manufacturing, iron- and steelmaking, and chemical production are particularly problematic. But there are a variety of current and future options to increase the uptake of renewab...
