CIGS エネルギー環境セミナー 「Low carbon energy technologies- IEA view on the current situation, challenges and future prospects -」

 キヤノングローバル戦略研究所(CIGS)は2019年8月29日に、国際エネルギー機関(IEA) 首席エコノミストのラズロ・バロー(Laszlo Varro)氏を招き、CIGSエネルギー環境セミナーを開催しました。

 国際エネルギー機関(IEA)の首席エコノミストであるラズロ・バロー氏は、再生可能エネルギー、原子力、水素、蓄電池、CCS等の「脱炭素エネルギー」に関し、現在までの世界における導入状況や今後の展望、課題等を説明しました。
 特に、再生可能エネルギーの導入や投資が必ずしも十分でないことを述べ、その中でも特に電化の進展が今後ますます重要な要素となること、運輸分野をはじめエネルギーの需要分野における電化や省エネを中心とした対応が温暖化対策の観点から重要性が増すことを指摘しました。
 また、このような対策を進める上で、技術のみならず政策においてもイノベーションが求められていることを強調しました。
 更に、このような脱炭素エネルギーの状況や世界の動向が日本にどのような意味があるかにも言及しました。

開催概要
題目: 「Low carbon energy technologies- IEA view on the current situation, challenges and future prospects -」
発表者: Laszlo Varro(Chief Economist, International Energy Agency(IEA))
モデレーター:芳川 恒志 (キヤノングローバル戦略研究所 上席研究員)


講演概要
The global energy system is in a transition. While impressive progress has been made in developing clean energy technologies such as PV and electric vehicles in recent years, there are still uncertainties: electricity demand in the global market grew more rapidly than the installment of renewable last year, the demand for fossil fuels has surged, coal has met 47% of the global new electricity demand since the turn of the century, eclipsing clean energy efforts made over the same period of time, which include improved implementation of energy efficiency measures and rapid growth in the use of renewable energy sources.
IEA research and analysis of clean energy technologies - which include renewable energy, nuclear power, electric vehicles and biofuels - focus on ways to boost demand and deployment. In this seminar, Mr. Laszlo Varro will present a concise picture of the current situation of the low carbon energy together with the major challenges and future prospect based on the recent IEA's analysis.

講師紹介
Laszlo Varro, who has worked at the IEA since 2011, became the Agency's Chief Economist at the start of 2016, succeeding Fatih Birol, who took over as IEA Executive Director on 1 September 2015.
As Chief Economist, Mr. Varro leads the Economics and Investment Office (EIO), a newly created group within the IEA that aims to offer sound and consistent energy economics and methodological support for the Agency's work. EIO also provides strategic support for the Executive Director's agenda.
Prior to assuming his new role, Mr. Varro served as IEA Head of Gas, Coal and Power Markets. In this post he was responsible for gas market and supply security analysis, LNG markets, gas market reforms and infrastructure policy. He led the Electricity Security Action Plan, the IEA work programme that provides comprehensive coverage of the policy, market design, infrastructure regulation and investment aspects of maintaining electricity security during the transition to a low-carbon power system.
Before joining the IEA, Mr. Varro was the Director for Strategy Development at MOL Group. From 2000 to 2005, he worked as the Head of Price Regulation at the Hungarian Energy Office. A Hungarian national, Mr. Varro started his career at the National Bank of Hungary after completing his graduate degree at the University of Cambridge and the Corvinus University of Budapest.
