Integrated Approaches to Energy Technologies


Beijing, China: 27 November 2012 - 27 November 2012

Organiser: Network of Experts in Energy Technology (NEET).  Hosted by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST)

Background

The Network of Expertise in Energy Technology (NEET) builds on the expertise of the multilateral technology initiatives supported by the IEA (formally called Implementing Agreements) and links with key partner countries, the international business community, policy makers, researchers and other stakeholders. It works to raise awareness of these international research groups and to facilitate broader participation.

As part of the dialogue, the NEET initiative works with key partner countries and regions interested in order to addresses their energy technology needs, to identify areas of mutual interest and potential future collaboration.

In this regional Asian NEET workshop “Integrated Approaches to Energy Technologies”, hosted by the Ministry for Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China, Implementing Agreements provided insight into the ways in which their work contributes to the two sessions:

  • Energy Security, Economic Growth and Environmental Protection - focusing on sustainable supply, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and socio-economic issues.
  • Creating the Right Policy Frameworks – guidelines and tools for policy makers in designing in energy efficient communities, transport and greenhouse gas emissions, and long-term strategies and planning.
