Power sector urged to decarbonise



Power sector urged to decarbonise
Industrial companies need to reduce their carbon emissions in order to combat climate change, new reports have argued.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has released research indicating that the use of electricity within industry is too high.

Reports entitled Energy technology transitions for industry - Strategies for the next industrial revolution and Sectoral approaches in electricity - Building bridges to a safe climate have been published.

Nobuo Tanaka, executive director of the IEA, suggested that applying new technologies is the key to industry becoming more energy efficient.

He said: "In the global fight against climate change, the industry and power sectors both play a key role.

"Decarbonising the power sector and reducing the CO2 intensity of key sectors such as iron and steel, cement, paper, chemicals and petrochemicals, as well as aluminium will be critical to achieve the ambitious targets for halving global CO2 emissions by 2050."

The IEA has claimed that the power and industry sectors make up around two-thirds of the globe's energy-related carbon emissions.
