Climate change and energy: to 2020 onwards

June 2009

Over the coming decades, energy demand will grow significantly, requiring large investments in energy and strong improvement in energy efficiency, all while managing risks associated with greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation and changes in climate and associated adaptation. Policies that aim at significant reductions in GHG emissions by 2020 would imply drastic changes in the supply and use of energy - with different changes in different regions - and raise critical questions for industry. This IPIECA-organised workshop brought together experts from academia, business, governments, and international and nongovernmental organisations to consider the outlook for greenhouse gas emissions and climate over the coming decades, policies being developed and implemented over this timeframe, and explore strategies and best practice for managing risks.
