"This publication provides stimulating analysis on future scenarios of
energy use, which focus on a range of technologies that are expected to
emerge in the coming years and decades.There is now universal
recognition of the fact that new technologies and much greater use of
some that already exist provide the most hopeful prospects for
mitigation of emissions of GHGs. It is for this reason that the
International Energy Agency, which in the past pursued an approach
based on a single time path of energy demand and supply, has now
developed alternative scenarios that incorporate future technological
changes. In the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as well, technology is included as a
crosscutting theme in recognition of the fact that an assessment of
technological options would be important both for mitigation as well as
adaptation measures for tackling climate change. "
