Accelerating clean energy technology innovation for a net-zero emission future

18th of September 2020 | 16:00 – 17:00

Event Overview

The world’s energy technology portfolio is currently not aligned with a net-zero emissions future and the pace of innovation does not provide a promising chance of reaching this goal. To decarbonise all parts of the economy, governments should turn an increased focus to sectors where emissions are hard to abate, such as aviation, shipping, trucks, or steel, cement and chemicals.

IEA’s Energy Technology Perspectives 2020 (ETP2020) Special report on Clean Energy Innovation includes recommendations to government and industry for how to accelerate clean energy technology innovation in these key sectors and shows the investment opportunities of today for both public and private investors through the ETP Clean Energy Technology Guide.

The IEA will during this MI-5 pre-event present the finding of the ETP report, followed by a panel discussion with selected speakers from government, the investor community and innovators.
