Activity Types

The Technology Platform proposes a series of activity types for partner involvement. This set of deliverables is designed to facilitate and support stakeholders’ sustainable transition to a low-carbon economy.

  • Dialogue Workshops

Based on identified partners’ interests, the Technology Platform convenes workshops and high-level dialogues in technology areas that have a significant CO2 emission reduction potential (and for which the IEA has a technology roadmap) to progress regional and national energy technology and policy dialogue.

  • Technology Roadmap Development

In close collaboration with project partners, the Technology Platform facilitates and co-ordinates the development of energy technology roadmaps and energy policy strategies, at the national and regional levels.

  • How2Guides

With support from project partners, the Technology Platform develops and disseminates replicable methodologies (e.g. technology specific 'how-to' roadmap guides) to help scale-up locally applicable clean energy technology policy transition planning tools (‘roadmaps’).

  • Training

Based on stakeholders’ expressed needs, the Technology Platform convenes dialogues and training courses to support enhanced application of IEA roadmap planning methodology by countries and other relevant stakeholders, and where appropriate, facilitates continued IEA support to the national roadmapping efforts.

  • Information Dissemination

The Technology Platform communicates and makes available, to the broadest audience possible, analysis and other material derived from its activities - in particular through the Technology Platform website and the development of other communication tools.

  • Annual Report

The Technology Platform develops an annual flagship report (publication in Q3/4), that aims to present past activities, provide an update on existing initiatives and introduce the Technology Platform work programme for the year to come, developed on the basis of identified gaps in international collaboration in the areas of clean energy technology development and deployment.

  • Thematic Analysis

To help advance 'emerging issues' in the clean energy technology debate, the Technology Platform develops, in close collaboration with interested stakeholders, thematic analysis/ reports/ roundtable dialogues.

  • International Engagement

In order to share the Technology Platform and IEA’s experience and analysis, the Technology Platform actively engages with international policy processes.
