The latest climate science and rapidly changing energy markets indicate the need to rapidly shift away from fossil gas, yet the IEA mistakenly presents gas as compatible with a decarbonized future. This policy brief brings together the latest energy market research with the need for reform of the World Energy Outlook.
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.

How the International Energy Agency’s Sustainable Development Scenario doesn’t match up to the Paris goals, and how the IEA can change it (2 years ago it nearly did!)
