About this report

The Clean Energy Transitions Programme (CETP) is the IEA’s flagship initiative for accelerating progress toward a global net zero energy system. Launched at the 2017 IEA Ministerial to leverage the Agency’s expertise, insights and influence, the programme has provided world-class analysis, technical assistance and capacity building to support the most ambitious reorientation of the world’s energy systems this century. The CETP’s work is structured across three pillars of activity, with a particular focus on emerging markets and developing economies. The first of these focuses on supporting emerging and developing countries to establish clean energy transition goals, in line with the objectives of the 2015 Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations. The second pillar centres on facilitating coordination among multilateral organisations such as the Group of 20 (G20) and UN-affiliated collaborations. The final pillar showcases the IEA’s work at a global level to enable and accelerate clean energy transitions.

The CETP Annual Report 2023 provides an overview of the programme’s achievements over the past year. The remarkable impact of the CETP’s work during this period was reflected in several notable achievements, including the announcement of a new set of fuel standards for trucks in Indonesia, the Energy Transition Plan in Uganda and the establishment of regulations for the spot electricity market in China. These and other policies announced in 2023 were all closely aligned with IEA recommendations and reinforced the Agency’s status as a trusted advisor to emerging and developing countries. The programme’s accomplishments also included the publication of the IEA’s first Latin America Energy Outlook and a World Energy Outlook Special Report on universal access to clean cooking in Africa. Additional highlights included annual updates of our World Energy Investment and World Energy Employment reports along with many others.

The programme also provided support to the IEA’s strategically important work on energy efficiency, critical minerals, energy employment, clean energy investment and people-centred energy transitions. The CETP supported the IEA’s efforts to improve energy data collection and to develop capacity among policy makers in partner countries. It contributed to the Agency’s role as a key coordinator of the global energy dialogue, as reflected in the many outcomes and mandates that emerged from G20, G7 and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Ministerial meetings throughout the year. The programme also helped facilitate the IEA’s engagement with the Presidency of the 28th annual UN climate meeting (COP28) in Dubai and supported the Agency’s ambitious action plan that informed the main outcome of that summit: the first ever global agreement to 1.5 °C-aligned energy transitions in the Global Stocktake outcome.
