IEA releases special report “Net Zero by 2050”

The number of countries announcing pledges to achieve net-zero emissions over the coming decades continues to grow. This special report by the IEA is the world’s first comprehensive study of how to transition to a net zero energy system by 2050 while ensuring stable and affordable energy supplies, providing universal energy access, and enabling robust economic growth. It sets out a cost-effective and economically productive pathway, resulting in a clean, dynamic and resilient energy economy dominated by renewables like solar and wind instead of fossil fuels.

IRENA releases special report on Green Hydrogen Cost Reduction

As global economies aim to become carbon neutral, competitive hydrogen produced with renewables has emerged as a key component of the energy mix. Falling renewable power costs and improving electrolyser technologies could make “green” hydrogen cost competitive by 2030. IRENA’s new report shows how green hydrogen can help to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in energy-intensive, hard-to-decarbonise sectors like steel, chemicals, long-haul transport, shipping and aviation.
