The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) published new findings in Global energy transformation: A roadmap to 2050: 2019 edition. Published on Tuesday 9 April, the report concluded that, to meet climate objectives, the deployment of renewables must increase “at least six-fold” compared to current governments’ plans. IRENA also found that energy-related CO2 emissions reductions would have to decline 70% by 2050, compared to current levels, to meet climate goals. Additionally, the share of electricity in total energy use must increase to near 50% by 2050 (up from 20%), with renewables making up two-thirds of energy consumption and 86% of power generation. IRENA also said that renewable electricity combined with electrification could reduce CO2 emissions by 60%.
