The InterAcademy Council (IAC) Board has just approved the undertaking of a new study on the topic "Transitions to Sustainable Energy Systems." The IAC is a multinational organization created by Academies of Sciences of the world to provide a source of in-depth science-based consensus advice on major science- and technology-intensive issues faced by the international community. This IAC study will review the global research and development efforts underway, assesses their adequacy and probable impacts, and outlines an appropriate response. It also includes addressing the public policy factors impacting on the direction and pace of technological transitions to sustainable energy systems, including the role of economic policy instruments.
