The possible contribution of new technologies to alleviating climate change is considered in a new report from the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies, part of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre.

Energy Technology Strategy 1995-2030: Opportunities Arising form the Threat of Climate Change examines to what extent technology can contribute to a possible structural change within energy markets leading to a less carbon-intensive exploitation system. It assesses the possible mechanisms through which these changes may take place, and what could be done to facilitate this transition.

The report contains the following sections:

- Energy systems: A global view;
- Carbon removal, fuel cycle shift and efficiency measures: A sectoral view;
- Power generation technology clusters: Present status and its potential;
- Technology scenarios to 2030: Baseline and alternative technology stories;
- Technology performance: Technological scenarios and market penetration assessment;
- Baseline and alternative technology scenarios to 2030: The effect onto the world's energy system;
- Implications for the EU energy R&D strategy and other policies.

The book has been produced with the aid of the JOULE programme run by the European Commission.
