New IEA Online Resource Will Track Progress Towards Energy Goals Agreed at COP28

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has launched a new dedicated web resource to track global progress towards the historic energy goals that were committed to at the COP28 climate summit in Dubai with the aim of limiting global warming to 1.5 °C.

The IEA is bringing together its unparalleled global energy data sets, tracking tools and analytical insights to support decision makers and other stakeholders seeking to achieve these goals – including this new one-stop-shop showing the current state of play and key resources to help drive progress.

The webpage, which will be updated regularly to reflect the latest available data and analysis, was developed in collaboration with United Nations Climate Change – part of a new phase of cooperation between the two international organisations.

In Dubai, nearly 200 countries recognised for the first time that to keep alive hopes of achieving the 1.5 °C target set by the Paris Agreement, global emissions from energy need to reach net zero by 2050 – and the countries set key collective goals to help meet that overarching objective. These include tripling renewable energy capacity and doubling the rate of energy efficiency improvements by 2030, accelerating the transition away from fossil fuels, and deploying new and emerging technologies, such as low-emissions hydrogen and carbon capture.
