Global transport emissions grew by only 0.6% in 2017 (compared to 1.7% annually over the past decade), as efficiency improvements, electrification and biofuels helped limit the growth in energy demand

Emissions from buildings appear to have peaked in 2013, although their energy consumption rebounded slightly in 2017 as the equivalent to the current floor area of Germany was added to the global building stock

After falling for three years, emissions in the power sector grew 2.6% in 2017. The decline in emission intensity of power generation also stalled in 2017, mainly because of growth in non-abated coal-fired generation

While individual clean energy technologies are the building blocks to clean energy transitions, a variety of “energy integration” technologies will also need to play an increasingly important role

World electricity demand increased by 3.1% in 2017, significantly higher than the overall increase in energy demand.

Together, China 🇨🇳 and India 🇮🇳 accounted for 70% of this growth http://bit.ly/2pmdEkh

China’s 🇨🇳 economy grew nearly 7% last year, but emissions increased by just 1.7% (or 150 Mt) thanks to continued renewables deployment & faster coal-to-gas switching http://bit.ly/2NX7xk6

Energy demand for cooling is the fastest growing end-use in buildings:

• Sales are rising 3 times faster than efficiency improvements
• 10 air conditioners will be sold every second over the next 30 years
