Stranded Assets and Renewable Energy

17 July 2017

The objective of this report by the International Renewable Energy Agency is to examine the potential magnitudes of asset stranding in the power generation, upstream, industry and building sectors (i. e. residential and commercial) in order to realise a decarbonisation of the global energy system in line with the Paris Agreement. The stranded asset analysis helps us to understand whether the scale of asset stranding will differ in the event that the policy action to achieve the Paris Agreement is delayed.
