The previous edition of Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP), published in summer 2008, called for an energy
technology revolution to tackle the undesirable consequences of our current patterns of energy supply and
use. Current energy and CO2 trends run directly counter to the repeated warnings sent by the United Nations
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). But how do we shift to a more sustainable energy
future? ETP 2010 explores what this future might look like through detailed scenario analysis that highlights
the key technologies, by sector and region, as well as examining issues such as financing, R&D and deployment
needs, policy issues, behavioural aspects and environmental co-impacts.
