There are no quick fixes to long-term energy challenges. To find solutions, governments and industry benefit from sharing resources and accelerating results. For this reason the IEA enables independent groups of experts - the Energy Technology Initiatives, or ETIs1.

This recently completed project under the ETI focusing on efficiency in industry (IETS) has now published its final reports. The project objective was to analyse energy systems and factors promoting or inhibiting a more efficient energy use in industrial SMEs. Download from the IETS website here.
Jointly organised by the ETIs dealing with efficiency in the industrial sector (IETS) and carbon capture and storage (GHG), this workshop presents an overview of the current state-of-the-art technology in industrial CCS and improved understanding of the different challenges in deploying CCS in the oil refining, chemical/petrochemical, and pulp and paper industries. Presentations are now available on the IETS website.
The most recent newsletter from the ETI focusing on efficiency in the industrial sector (IETS) gives an update on the most recent Executive Committee meeting and four current projects. Download from the IETS website here.
The Implementing Agreements in this category are reviewed by the Working Party on Energy End-Use Technologies (EUWP).
