Analysing Our Energy Future: Some Pointers for Policy-makers



This report is a non-technical summary of the International Energy Agency’s latest World Energy Outlook. It focuses on its Alternative Policy and Beyond the Alternative Policy Scenarios – a deliberate choice aimed to spur action by underscoring the impacts on the future of the policy decisions made today. It is written in non-technical language to make it accessible to as wide an audience as possible. The report highlights that early moves to shift towards a more sustainable energy system are more effective and cheaper compared to delayed action. It outlines some policy approaches that can bring about this shift and the time scales involved in it, noting that a delay of 10 years in implementing the Alternative Policy Scenario, for example, would push back the date of being on a sustainable path by several decades. It concludes that there is no sensible reason – economic or otherwise – to delay implementation. [www.unep.fr]
