Electricity is at the centre of clean energy transitions in many countries around the world. It is essential for the integration of growing shares of renewables in the energy system and replacing fossil fuels in a variety of end-use sectors. At the same time, the electricity sector is facing a wide range of challenges – ranging from the reduction of emissions from the use of fossil fuels to security of supply and the provision of universal electricity access.
The IEA’s twice-yearly Electricity Market Report provides insights into recent developments in electricity markets around the world and an outlook for upcoming years. It includes analyses for electricity demand, supply, capacity and emissions, both globally and by country.
