World Energy Transitions Outlook 2023: 1.5°C Pathway; Preview

The World Energy Transitions Outlook 2023 Preview offers key insights from the forthcoming IRENA report, providing high-level perspectives on the progress achieved in meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement.


The World Energy Transitions Outlook outlines a vision for the transition of the energy landscape to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, presenting a pathway for limiting global temperature rise to within 1.5°C of pre-industrial levels and bringing CO2 emissions to net zero by mid-century.

This Preview presents high-level insights from the forthcoming 2023 report, which builds on two of IRENA’s key scenarios to capture global progress toward meeting the 1.5°C climate goal: the Planned Energy Scenario (PES) and the 1.5°C Scenario (1.5-S).
