The International Energy Agency (IEA) is leading the development of a series of roadmap for some of the most important energy technologies.  Roadmaps achieve consensus on low-carbon energy milestones, priorities for technology development, policy and regulatory frameworks, investment needs and public engagement.  As such, roadmaps can provide solid analytical footing that enables national policy makers and industry to develop specific technologies.  12 technology specific roadmaps have now been completed covering both energy supply and demand technologies.

The Technology Roadmap: Carbon Capture and Storage in Industrial Applications shows that carbon capture and storage (CCS) has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions from industrial applications by 4 gigatonnes in 2050. Such an amount is equal to roughly one-tenth of the total emission cuts needed to reduce emissions by 50% by the middle of the century. The roadmap focuses on five main industrial applications: high-purity CO2 sources, biomass conversion, cement, iron and steel and refineries. It sets out a vision of CCS in industrial applications up to 2050, including milestones that need to be achieved for technology, financing, policy and international collaboration.
