Energy efficiency: Digitalisation

Energy efficiency is changing, with new digital technologies enabling greater control, optimisation and analytics. Harnessing digital technologies to enhance energy efficiency will require new policies and business models.


Digitalisation library


The IEA has developed a new digitalisation library, as part of our online global exchange for energy efficiency. It features a collection of case studies from across the globe, results from deeper research and analysis on selected topics, as well as a new framework for understanding policy enablers.

The library includes resources on over 18 digital technologies, which have been identified for their potential to have substantial impacts on energy efficiency. It also includes resources that explore the impacts of digital technologies as well as policy considerations for energy efficiency policy makers.
