IEA launches the Clean Energy Transitions Programme to support clean-energy development

The International Energy Agency announced today the launch of the Clean Energy Transitions Programme, a new multi-year, EUR 30 million plan backed by 13 countries to support clean energy transitions around the world.

This new Programme will leverage the IEA’s unique energy expertise across all fuels and technologies to help accelerate global clean-energy transitions, particularly in major emerging economies. The announcement was made before the start of the IEA’s 2017 Ministerial Meeting, a high-level event that brings together energy leaders from around the world every two years.

The Programme will provide cutting-edge technical support to governments whose energy policies will significantly impact the speed of a global transition toward more sustainable energy production and use, including reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and greater access to energy.
