Using International Standards to promote energy efficiency through effective public policies and private sector actions was the topic of an IEC/ISO/IEA joint workshop held in March in Paris, France. Presentations and discussion panels provided insights on the requirements and challenges related to energy efficiency and standardization work in a variety of fields, including industrial systems, power generation, buildings, electrical and electronic appliances, networks and data centres, transport and energy management. Recommendations were made to enhance participation and coordination in the standards development process at the regional and international levels.
