International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)Recently, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) released the World Energy Transitions Outlook report-2023.

Highlights of the report

  • The global energy transition is still not on track and well short of the 1.5°C pathway.

  • To survive 1.5°C, deployment levels must increase from 3,000 gigawatts (GW) at present to more than 10,000 GW in 2030, averaging 1,000 GW annually.

  • Equally, more investment towards countries requires public sector intervention.

  • Global investment in energy transformation technologies to reach a new record of $1.3 trillion in 2022.

  • Annual investments must more than quadruple to more than $5 trillion to stay on the 1.5°C path.

  • By 2030, cumulative investment should be US$44 trillion, with transition technologies representing 80 percent of total investment, or $35 trillion.

  • Current pledges and plans fall well short of IRENA's 1.5°C pathway and would result in an emissions gap of 16 gigatonnes (Gt) in 2050.
