  • Investment in renewable energy will need to triple by the end of this decade if the world’s climate pledges are to be met, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Wednesday.
  • “this clean energy progress is still far too slow to put global emissions into sustained decline towards net zero” by 2050.
  • If countries manage to implement these pledges in time, the global average temperature increase would be around 2.1 C by the year 2100 — an improvement, but still well above the 1.5 Celsius agreed under the Paris accord, the IEA concluded.
