This 2010 edition of Key World Energy Statistics by IEA consists of global data up to 2008 and when available up to 2009, for energy production, trade, transformation and consumption, CO2 emissions from fuel combustion and energy prices.
The UT Administration has adopted the theme, 'generating electricity from solar power', under the Solar City initiative, for which a proposal has been made before the Union government for its approval.
Recent actions by many governments to promote more efficient, cleaner sources of energy signify positive steps to help improve energy security and mitigate climate change. Transformation of the energy sector, however, requires that commitments to energy efficiency and clean energy be sustained on a global level for many years to come.
This report seeks to inform decision makers seeking to prioritise RD&D investments in a time of financial uncertainty. It is an update of the December 2009 IEA report Global Gaps in Clean Energy Research, Development and Demonstration, which examined whether rates of LCET investment were sufficient to achieve shared global energy and environmental goals (IEA,2009a).
This paper looks at three clean energy product categories: equipment energy efficiency; low-carbon transport, including high-efficiency vehicles and electric/plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EV/PHEVs); and solar photovoltaic (PV) power.
