ABSTRACT
The article reports on the warning issued by the International Energy Agency (IEA) for policymakers in its annual World Energy Outlook. The IEA outlines the amount of investment needed to stabilise emissions and limit global temperature increases, as well as the amount needed to be spent on renewables and energy-efficient technologies. The IEA said that the slow rate of capital replacement in the power sector was a "key constraint" and "it will be necessary to face up to the reality of the cost of early capital retirement."
