IEA Favors Price on Carbon, Priority Solar Projects Announced: Solar energy can provide a third of the world's e...

Solar energy can provide a third of the world's energy by 2060 if politicians commit to addressing climate change, but rather than subsidizing particular solar technologies like PV or thermal, a better strategy is to put a price on carbon, says The International Energy Agency (IEA). Putting a price on carbon would spur widespread innovation and would be more effective than subsidizing individual technologies. Government policy needs to take an "integrated approach combining solar with energy efficiency and having as its main objective an increase in total system efficiency and the reduction of total costs," he added. "Every good renewable energy policy starts with energy efficiency." "Integrating all solar technologies in a system-oriented policy approach will unlock the potential of solar energy within the broader set of low-carbon technologies needed for a future sustain...
