This special report by the International Energy Agency, part of the World Energy Outlook series, offers an analysis of climate action from an energy sector perspective.

The report assesses the impacts of known and signaled national climate pledges (INDCs for COP21) on the energy sector. It also proposes a bridging strategy to achieve climate targets through energy sector measures without hampering economic growth. The report further emphasizes the role of emerging technologies in the transition to a global energy system that is consistent with climate goals.
