The Global Energy Assessment (GEA) is a major initiative established by IIASA in late 2005 to help decision makers address the challenges of providing energy services for sustainable development, whilst ameliorating existing and emerging threats associated with: security of supply; access to modern forms of energy for development and poverty alleviation; local, regional and global environmental impacts; and securing sufficient investment.
Addressing these issues simultaneously to achieve the multiple objectives of sustainable development in both developing and industrialized countries requires detailed knowledge based on comprehensive and integrated analysis of energy challenges. The GEA is larger than authoritative studies on energy-related issues, which have generally provided limited integrated analysis of the range of potentially competing energy objectives.
