Energy Efficiency in Emerging Economies Training Weeks


The IEA Energy Efficiency in Emerging Economies Training Week is a 5-day training event dedicated to sharing experience with planning, implementing and evaluating energy efficiency policies in emerging economies. The training weeks have now brought together over 600 ‘next generation’ energy efficiency professionals, primarily from government institutions and supporting organisations in emerging economies. 

The aim of these training events is to equip junior energy efficiency policy makers with knowledge and skills to be more effective in their roles. Participants become part of the international energy efficiency community with a large support network to call upon as they progress through their careers. 

The energy efficiency training week programme consists of parallel courses on energy efficiency in the following areas: 

1) Buildings2) Lighting, Appliances and Equipment; 3) Industry; 4) Transport

The programme includes cross-sectoral sessions on assessing the potential for energy efficiency, tracking progress, communication campaigns and finance. In order to provide hands-on experience, participants take part in a site visit pertitent to the chosen course. Previous site visits have included Autolib, Bouygues and Schneider Electric.
