The International Energy Agency (IEA) is pleased to announce the 15th Energy Efficiency Policy Training Week, which will take place in person in Jakarta, Indonesia from 2-5 October 2023.
The Energy Efficiency Policy Training Week aims to build capacity among policy makers from emerging economies, equipping them with greater knowledge and skills to develop and implement effective energy efficiency initiatives in their respective countries.
Since 2015, IEA has held week-long training events dedicated to sharing experience with planning, implementing and evaluating energy efficiency policies in emerging economies. These training weeks have brought together more than 2 000 energy efficiency professionals from over 120 countries, primarily from government institutions and supporting organisations in emerging economies.
The E4 Training week consists of 5 parallel courses on: energy efficiency in: 1) buildings; 2) appliances and equipment; 3) industry; 4) transport; and 5) indicators and evaluation.
Each course offers a combination of lectures, interactive discussions and practical exercises that allow participants to learn from international best practice and from each other.
The programme also includes sessions on assessing the potential for energy efficiency, financing, tracking progress, and communication campaigns as well as exploring the social and economic benefits of energy efficiency measures. The trainers for each stream are carefully selected international experts who bring a number of years of experience from the private and public sectors as well as experience across a range of countries and regions.
The training is aimed at energy efficiency policymakers, principally from energy ministries and supporting institutions across Southeast Asia. We would, however, also accept applications from those in relevant sectors of industry or knowledge-based institutions. While there is no fee to participate in the training, participants will be responsible for paying for their own travel and accommodation.
Women are strongly encouraged to apply.
