International Energy Agency's Energy Technology Perspectives 2012July 17 | 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM (add to my calendar)
Energy Technology Perspectives 2012 (ETP 2012) looks at how technologies-- from electric vehicles to smart grids-- can make a decisive difference in achieving the objective of limiting the global temperature rise to 2°C and enhancing energy security. ETP 2012 presents scenarios and strategies to 2050, with the aim of guiding decision makers on energy trends and what needs to be done to build a clean, secure and competitive energy future.
ETP 2012 shows:
• Current progress on clean energy deployment, and what can be done to accelerate it.
• How energy security and low carbon energy are linked.
• How energy systems will become more complex in the future and why systems integration is beneficial and how it can be achieved.
• How flexible electricity systems are increasingly important, and how a system with smarter grids, energy storage and flexible generation can work.
• Why fossil fuels will not disappear but will see their roles change, and what it means for the energy system as a whole.
