Energy Technology Perspectives 2014
The CSIS Energy and National Security Program hosted Didier Houssin, Director of the Directorate of Sustainable Energy Policy and Technology at the IEA, to present the IEA's Energy Technology Perspectives 2014 (ETP 2014). Starting from the premise that electricity will be an increasingly important vector in energy systems of the future, ETP 2014 takes a deep dive into actions needed to support delpoyment of sustainable options for generation, distribution and end-use consumption. In addition to modelling the global outlook to 2050 under different scenarios for more than 500 technology options, ETP 2014 explores the possibility of 'pushing the limits' in six key areas: Solar Power, Natural Gas in Low-Carbon Electricity Systems, E-mobility, Electricity Storage, Attracting Finance for Low-Carbon Generation, and Power Generation in India. Guy Caruso, Senior Adviser with the CSIS Energy and National Security Program, moderated.
