EIA urges Governments to go for “bold change” in energy policy

The Major oil-consuming nations must either opt for “a bold change of policy direction” or end up in an “insecure, inefficient and high-carbon energy system,” the International Energy Agency (EIA) warned yesterday in its publication the World Energy Outlook 2011.

"Growth, prosperity and rising population will inevitably push up energy needs over the coming decades. But we cannot continue to rely on insecure and environmentally unsustainable uses of energy," IEA Executive Director Maria van der Hoeven told a press conference in London, launching the publication.
