Global Energy Assessment identifies pathways to a sustainable energy future

The GEA, the most comprehensive and first ever fully integrated global assessment of energy systems, involving many of the world's leading energy specialists, outlines a range of resources, technologies, policy options and pathways that would facilitate a transformation of energy systems and address these challenges. These necessary changes will require significant investment in new energy infrastructure, major improvements in energy efficiency - particularly in the building and transport sectors - decarbonization of fossil-fuel based energy systems, and investment in the development and use of renewable energy sources.
