Executive Summary

In July of 2009, the Leaders of the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate (MEF), representing the 17 largest economies of the world, launched the Global Partnership for low-carbon and climate-friendly technologies. As an initial step, they requested a suite of plans, which now span ten climate-related technologies that together address more than 80% of the energy sector carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reduction potential identified by the IEA. The Executive Summary summarizes the resulting menu of potential actions for all countries to consider in pursuit of the common goal of a global low-carbon economy.
