World carbon intensity fell less than 1% in 20 years: IEA


Tracking Clean Energy Progress 2013

 a report by The International Energy Agency (April, 2013)

The global energy supply is not getting cleaner, despite efforts to advance clean energy.

 Coal technologies continue to dominate growth in power generation.This is a major reason why the amount of CO2 emitted for each unit of energy supplied has fallen by less than 1% since 1990 (Box I.1). Thus the net impact on CO2 intensity of all changes in supply has been minimal. Coal-fired generation, which rose by anestimated 6% from 2010 to 2012, continues to grow faster than non-fossil energysources on an absolute basis.
