The IEA’s new 1.5°C-aligned scenario finds “no need for investment in new fossil fuel supply.” This represents a break from past IEA reports that boosted new oil and gas development by focusing on scenarios that steered the world towards catastrophic levels of warming. This is a big step in the right direction.

Response: IEA commits to develop a full 1.5°C-aligned net zero scenario
The IEA is finally taking a major step towards living up to its ambition to lead the clean energy transition.
“Bold, not incremental” post-COVID-19 action on climate is urgently required from IEA
A letter from leading businesses, scientists and activists demands “bold, not incremental, action” is required from the International Energy Agency on climate change. Hopefully, Dr. Birol and the IEA are listening. For all our futures may depend on their report next month.
Putting clean energy stimulus at the heart of IEA analysis?
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.
New Briefing: IEA Ignores Climate Reality with Industry-Friendly Outlook for Gas
With its over reliance on natural gas, the IEA’s World Energy Outlook (WEO) promotes an energy scenario that will exhaust a 1.5°C carbon budget by the early 2030s.
IEA defends its energy forecasts which ‘steer world towards massive fossil fuel growth’
Last week, some 50 leading scientists, NGOs, investors, politicians and energy experts wrote to the International Energy Agency (IEA) to criticise the world’s top energy body for not aligning its energy forecasts with the latest climate science.
International Energy Agency Undermining Governments’ Climate Goals
The IEA is steering the energy system towards catastrophic levels of warming. It continues to promote an energy future headed for around 3 degrees of warming, and acts as if the Paris Agreement never happened
Why Does the IEA Keep Forecasting Climate Failure?
There’s a battle taking place over how we think our energy future will unfold. And tomorrow, the organization that arguably holds a near monopoly over how most decision-makers perceive this future – the International Energy Agency (IEA) – will release its latest volley.
RELEASE: IEA “neglects Paris Agreement” with new World Energy Outlook
The International Energy Agency neglects the Paris Agreement with its new World Energy Outlook. The world needs better odds than a coin toss of avoiding dangerous climate change
Solar Could be World’s Main Power Source by 2050
How about some good news for a change? The end of the dominance of the oil age could be sooner than you think.
