The International Energy Agency (IEA) hosted its second Energy Efficiency in Emerging Economies Training Week from 6 - 10 June 2016 inclusive in Paris. This event is central to the IEA’s ongoing engagement with emerging economies.
This training event offers a combination of lectures, interactive discussions, practical exercises and a site visit. Advanced courses are offered on each of the following end-use sectors:
1) Buildings; 2) Lighting, Appliances and Equipment; 3) Industry; 4) Transport (co-hosted with the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI))
The courses will help participants ask the following questions regarding their countries’ energy efficiency policies: Where to start? What are the steps? Did it work? Where do I get help?
Also, cross-sectoral sessions on assessing the potential for energy efficiency, tracking progress, communication campaigns and finance were offered to all participants. On day 3 of the training event, participants had the opportunity to take part in site visits, which were organised within Paris and were pertinent to the course participants choose to follow.
A special focus this year was on measuring the social and economic benefits of energy efficiency measures.
