IEA confirms energy crisis is fossil fuel crisis and forecasts peak in gas

October 27, 2022By Oil Change InternationalFeatured, Press Releases 1 Comment

The International Energy Agency (IEA) released its 2022 World Energy Outlook (WEO), underscoring that accelerating investment in clean energy and efficiency, not new fossil fuels, is the answer to both climate and energy security crises. In a marked shift for the IEA, WEO 2022 essentially declares an end to the ‘golden age of gas,’ as a result of the current energy crisis cementing an economic case against gas expansion, on top of the clear climate case.

In response to the new report released today by the International Energy Agency (IEA), experts at Oil Change International have issued the following statement: “The IEA again misses the mark where it matters the most, completely ignoring the link between sustainable recovery and staying within 1.5°C of warming. Nowhere in the report is there mention of the critical 1.5-degree warming limit, let alone analysis of what’s needed for a recovery plan to be fully aligned with it.”

Sortie de crise: L’Agence internationale de l’Énergie échoue de nouveau à planifier la nécessaire sortie des énergies fossiles

L’AIE publie aujourd’hui une édition spéciale de son rapport World Energy Outlook dédié aux mesures de soutien aux énergies propres dans le contexte des plans de relance post-COVID. Et pourtant, loin de marquer une rupture avec les modèles préexistants, le rapport s’obstine à ménage toutes les formes d’énergie et fait l’impasse sur la nécessaire sortie des hydrocarbures.

Oil Change International et Reclaim Finance dénoncent cet énième rapport inepte pour guider les choix des décideurs politiques et financiers en matière de transition énergétique et appellent ces derniers à la plus grande prudence quant à ses conclusions.

People all over the world are facing unprecedented crises from COVID-19. These tragic impacts will be the deepest in the world’s most vulnerable communities, regions and countries. IEA director Dr. Fatih Birol has urged governments worldwide to place clean energy at the heart of stimulus. Here Dr. Birol is right – but making this clean energy call count with real ambition is critical if the IEA wants to shake its reputation as a shill for the fossil fuel sector.
