Energy Technology Perspectives 2016 : Towards Sustainable Urban Energy Systems
Paris : OECD
418 p.

Cities drive economic growth but can also drive sustainable change. As the share of the world’s population living in cities rises, ambitious action in urban areas can be instrumental in achieving long-term sustainability of the global energy system – including the carbon emission reductions.  With global energy demand set to become even greater over the coming decades, Energy Technology Perspectives 2016 (ETP 2016) looks at the technology and policy opportunities available for accelerating the transition to sustainable urban energy systems. Indeed, policies still have a long way to go in this regard: ETP 2016 presents the annual IEA Tracking Clean Energy Progress report, which finds once again that despite some notable progress, the rate of needed improvements is far slower than required to meet energy sector sustainability goals. ETP 2016 purchase includes extensive downloadable data, figures and visualisations.
