Event — IEA Ministerial 2024, Paris

IEA Energy Innovation Forum 2024

Background information

Fostering innovative, clean energy technology for rapid global energy transitions

An event of the International Energy Agency’s 50th Anniversary Ministerial meeting 

For five decades, the IEA has worked with decision makers and international experts to facilitate exchanges on innovative energy technologies. This work has never been as important as it is today, with clean energy technologies playing a critical role in accelerating transitions to secure, sustainable and affordable energy systems on the road to net zero emissions. In this context, fostering an environment in which innovation, investment and policy ambition can thrive is an essential building block of the new energy economy. 

The IEA Energy Innovation Forum 2024 event will address the main challenges facing technologies moving from the innovation phase to early adoption, and how to bolster support for the developers and innovators on this journey. 

Topics that will be covered during the IEA Energy Innovation Forum’s sessions include: embracing opportunities in emerging markets and developing economies; driving emissions abatement in industrial heat; leveraging best practices for large-scale demonstration programmes; and identifying priority actions for the IEA and the international community. Following the event, the outcomes and conclusions of the dialogues will be shared directly with ministers.

Attendance is by invitation only. For any enquiries, please contact energyinnovation@iea.org
