International low carbon energy technology platform
The International low carbon energy technology platform is the International Energy Agency (IEA)’s chief tool for multilateral engagement on clean technologies between its member and partner countries, the business community and other international organizations.
Created by IEA Ministers in 2010, the energy technology platform focuses its activities on three axes of action:
- Engagement worldwide: best practice sharing on clean energy technologies and partnership building
- How2Guides: technology specific guidance for roadmap development and implementation at the national / regional level
- Cross-cutting analysis on selected themes relevant to multilateral collaboration on low carbon energy technologies.
In its activities, the platform aims to promote technologies that foster significant reductions in CO
2, in order to help governments meet the goal of limiting the rise in global temperatures, in accordance with the IEA 2 degree scenario.
