Innovation landscape for smart electrification: decarbonising end-use sectors with renewable power

Electrifying the use of energy in industry, transport and buildings with renewables is a cost-effective way to decarbonise end-use sectors, increase security of supply, reduce dependency of imported fossil fuels and mitigate risks of fuel prices volatility as experienced in recent years. This new report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) provides governments with a toolbox of 100 innovative solutions to tailor national strategies and cut emissions in end-uses. By formulating smart electrification strategies, countries can take concrete actions, minimise investment and significantly accelerate the transition towards the COP28 in Dubai later this year.
