IEA to Hold Workshop on Energy Efficiency to Reduce Carbon Emissions

Workshop on Energy Efficiency to Reduce Carbon Emissions

January 2009: The International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Organization for Standardization, and the International Electrotechnical Commission are organizing a workshop on International Standards to Promote Energy Efficiency and Reduce Carbon Emissions. The workshop will convene at the Organization for Economic and Co-operation Development (OECD) conference centre in Paris, France, from 16-17 March 2009.

The workshop will bring together key players in standardization and policy making from around the world to discuss standardization priorities in all the primary energy using sectors. Plenary sessions will consider “The importance of energy efficiency standardization” and “Can we measure efficiency from the end-use to the sectoral level?” And parallel sessions will address: terminology and calculation methods; energy management; energy efficiency of buildings; energy efficiency of electrical and electronic appliances; systemic approach for industrial systems; systemic approach for power generation; energy efficiency of data centers and networks; and energy efficiency of transportation.
