Report of the International Energy Agency New Opportunities and Risks from the New Cleantech Era.
Global industry is on the cusp of a new industrial age – the Cleantech age by Clean Technologists. Sectors that were in their infancy in the 2000s (photovoltaics or wind energy) or 2010s (electric cars and batteries) have now grown into large manufacturing operations. The size and importance of these and other important cleantech areas indicate continued rapid growth.
Landers across the planet are pushing hard to scale up the manufacture of clean energy technologies. Overarching goal: to advance the transition to net-zero energy, strengthen security of supply and enable in the new cleantech era. The current global energy crisis is a crucial moment for the global energy transition. Because they trigger a wave of investments that will sustainably strengthen the above and other cleantech sectors in the coming years. In this context, the development of secure, resilient and sustainable clean energy and cleantech supply chains is crucial.
Each country must recognize how it can capitalize on the opportunities of the new cleantech era by defining its industrial strategy according to its strengths and weaknesses. The IEA report Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP-2023) is one of the most widely accepted tests of global energy saving solutions, including mining, manufacturing of materials containing lithium, copper, nickel, steel, cement, aluminum and plastics, and manufacturing. and installation of key technology.
The report paints a scenario of how these sectors could develop in the coming years as countries pursue their energy, climate and industrial goals. And it assesses the opportunities and needs for building secure, resilient and sustainable supply chains for clean energy technologies – and examines the implications for policymakers.
“Energy Technology Perspectives 2023” is in the report of the International Energy Agency (IEA), which concentrates a role of energy technologies under the leadership of the energy future. The report covers a wide range of topics including energy efficiency, renewable energy, power storage, hydrogen and carbon capture and storage (CCS).
The International Energy Agency report highlights that energy efficiency A key driver for sustainable energy is and that there is significant potential for further improvement in this area. The report also notes that Energy Booster Crucial to meeting global energy needs, the deployment of renewable energy has grown rapidly in recent years. However, the report also acknowledges that there are significant challenges that need to be overcome to fully realize the potential of renewable energy.
The report diskutilt the role of power storage on integrating renewable energy into the grid and notes that the cost of storing electricity has fallen, making it more attractive to many countries. The report also highlights the increasing importance of hydrogen as a low-carbon energy source and discusses the various ways to produce and use hydrogen.
The Report on the New Era of Cleantech then emphasizes the importance of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in increasing the environmental impact of energy production and use. The report finds that CCS has the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but that there are several technical and economic challenges that need to be overcome to make this a reality.
In summary, the Energy Technology Perspectives 2023 report provides a comprehensive overview of the role of energy technologies in realizing a sustainable energy future in the cleantech era. The report emphasizes the need for sustainable innovation and investment in energy efficiency, renewable energy, power storage, hydrogen and CCS to ensure global energy supply while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
What does the new cleantech era look like?
Since 2009 I, Martin Jendrischik, have been writing about Cleantech with Cleanthinking. In other words, “clean” technologies that make our planet better and more resource-efficient. 14 years later, the once conservative International Energy Agency, deeply entangled in the fossil-nuclear world, is proclaiming the cleantech age.
This report shows the tremendous opportunities that the age of renewable energies, electric cars and hydrogen offers. Industry will be taken to a whole new level and will be able to operate in a largely climate-friendly manner. The global competition for the best solutions for this recently began with Joe Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act.
It is good that climate-friendly technologies are not only used because we need them to combat the planetary crisis. But primarily because they are so cheap that there is no way around them. And: because all countries with strong or emerging industries have the opportunity to become more economically relevant in the cleantech age.
But: Those who get caught up in administrative overzealousness and start the cleantech age more slowly than the pioneers are threatened with a loss of prosperity and decline. That is why it is so important that Germany achieves the goal of becoming the first industrialized country to operate in a climate-neutral manner. And decisively advances the goal of making Europe the first climate-neutral continent.
