The International Energy Agency (IEA) advocates policies that will enhance the reliability, affordability and sustainability of energy in its 30 member countries and beyond through its work across a spectrum of energy issues including oil, gas and coal supply and demand, renewable energy technologies, electricity markets, energy efficiency, access to energy, demand side management. IEA’s focus is on the four key areas of Energy Security, Economic Development, Environmental Awareness, and Engagement Worldwide. In October 2019, IEA released the Renewables 2019 market analysis and forecast from 2019 to 2024 on renewable energy and technologies. It provides global trends and developments for renewable energy in the electricity, heat and transport sectors. This year's analysis contains an in-depth look at distributed solar PV, which is set to more than double in capacity in the next five years, accounting for almost half of all solar PV growth. The report assesses the current state of play of distributed solar PV and maps out its huge growth potential in the coming years.
