IEA's key messages for UNFCCC COP21

International Energy Agency presented its four key messages for the upcoming UN climate negotiations, which could help UNFCCC shift the energy sector onto a low-carbon path while supporting economic growth and providing energy to more people. The four messages emphasise necessity to :

- take five key actions, led by energy efficiency and renewables, to peak global energy emissions;
- use the Paris Agreement to drive short-term actions consistent with long-term emission goals;
- accelerate energy technology innovation to make decarbonisation cheaper and easier;
- enhance energy security by making the energy sector more resilient to climate change impacts.
