The Energy Efficiency Hub is a new platform for global collaboration on energy efficiency. Its Secretariat is hosted at the IEA to take advantage of natural synergies with the work of the Agency.
The Hub aims to facilitate government-to-government exchanges on efficiency policy, regulation and implementation, focusing on buildings, industry, appliances, and transport.
The Hub takes on issues important to its Members through thematic Task Groups to inform policy-making and communicate emerging best practices. Currently, the Hub has four Task Groups:
- The Digitalisation Working Group,
- The Super-Efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment Initiative (or SEAD, concurrently an Initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial)
- TOP TENs, which identifies best technologies and practices, and
- The Energy Management Action Network (EMAK), devoted to energy management systems in industry and buildings.
The Hub has sixteen members: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, European Commission, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Russia, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom and United States.
