Long term global energy strategy 'could prevent 3.3 million air pollution deaths' IEA report calls for clean energy strategy, investment and targets in order to prevent 3.3 million global air pollution deaths by 2040. A long term strategy for the global energy sector is needed to reduce the projected number of air pollution deaths by 3.3 million a year by 2040, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).

On 27 June 2016, Dr Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the IEA launched the first ever Special Report on Energy and Pollution. In his presentation, Dr Birol explained that the energy system contributes to economic and social progress around the world, but there are costly side-effects. Millions of tonnes of energy-related pollutants are released each year, and around 18 000 people die each day as a result of air pollution. In fact, the number of deaths attributed to air pollution each year – 6.5 million deaths – is, according to the World Health Organization, much greater than the number from HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and road injuries combined.

Pollution de l'air : le secteur énergétique principal responsable. La production et la consommation d'énergie sont à l'origine de 85% des particules fines et de la quasi-totalité des oxydes de soufre et d'azote, souligne un rapport de l'Agence internationale de l'énergie. Mais augmenter de 7% les investissement dans ce secteur jusqu'en 2040 permettrait d'éviter plusieurs millions de décès.

La pollution de l’air cause 6,5 millions de décès par an. Un rapport de l'Agence internationale de l'énergie (AIE) publié lundi s'alarme sur le nombre de décès liés à la pollution de l'air et préconise le recours aux énergies propres. Selon les chiffres de l'Agence, 6,5 millions de personnes meurent chaque année dans le monde en raison de la pollution de l’air causée par l’activité humaine. Soit près de 18.000 décès chaque jour, un chiffre plus élevé que la mortalité liée au sida, à la tuberculose ou aux accidents de la route cumulés.

The IEA has warned that if the current low oil prices persist, world energy security would be threatened due to the reduced investment and increased reliance on several oil producers with low exploration cost in the Middle East. In the regional distribution picture of oil demand, the developing economies in Asia are expected to be the primary drivers of growth. China is currently in the process of transforming its economy towards less energy intensive sectors, a decision that is expected to re-shape the world energy market.
