Innovation Priorities to Transform the Energy System

The transformation of the global energy system is under way, driven by the needs to address climate change and broaden access to affordable and secure energy, and enabled by cost-competitive renewable power and emerging innovative technical, policy and market solutions. Technology innovation has been and will continue to be a critical enabler of progress, but innovation priorities need to be refreshed to address the new challenges of integrating high shares of renewable power and electrifying the end-use sectors of transport, industry and buildings.
