SEAD - Maximising the Impact of Appliance Efficiency Policy with Digital Tools

Webinar recording

Background information

As governments work to improve the efficiency of their economies and encourage consumers and businesses to invest in more efficient appliances and equipment, they need timely information on the evolution of their appliance markets. Innovative tools can leverage big data and advanced algorithms to provide governments with a more detailed picture of appliance markets and key insights on purchasing decisions for more effective policy design in a cost effective and timely way.

The IEA and SEAD invite you to join us for a discussion with the Swedish Energy Agency and industry leaders Big2Great ApS and Premise at our upcoming webinar “Maximising the Impact of Appliance Efficiency Policy with Digital Tools.” The discussion will explore how crowd-sourced information and web crawling programmes – software that rapidly searches the internet for specific information – can create detailed pictures of appliance markets.
