World Energy Transitions Outlook 2022

by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)

This second edition of the Outlook outlines priority areas and actions based on available technologies that must be realised by 2030 to achieve net zero emissions by mid-century. By laying out a map for the next eight years, the report enables policy makers to stay on the path to 2050. It provides in-depth analysis of two areas particularly relevant for the decarbonisation of end-use sectors: electrification and bioenergy. It also explores the socio-economic impacts of the 1.5°C pathway and suggests ways to speed progress towards universal access to clean energy.
