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.

    10 Aug 2012 Click to Access:  Solar Heating and Cooling
IEA
The solar heating and cooling (SHC) roadmap outlines a pathway for solar energy to supply almost one sixth (18 EJ) of the world’s total energy use for both heating and cooling by 2050. This would save some 800 megatonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2 ...
    06 Aug 2012 Click to Access:  Carbon Capture and Storage in Industrial Applications
IEA, United Nations Industrial Development Organization
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 ...
