IEA-IEC-ISO Workshop on International Standards in Support of Policies for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy


Room 1, IEA, Paris: 13 March 2014 - 13 March 2014

Organiser: IEA-IEC-ISO

Background

The workshop brought together policymakers, representatives from international standardisation organisations and other key stakeholders engaged in activities that promote energy efficiency and renewable energy. The workshop provided an opportunity to discuss how to improve the engagement of stakeholders in international standardisation and how to ensure that international standards support the transition towards more sustainable energy systems. A key topic that was explored during the workshop is how to facilitate the development and use of systemic approaches both within policy making and standardisation.
