IEA Energy Efficiency Policy Training Week Overview

The IEA has supported governments of major emerging economies in advancing energy efficiency policies and programmes through the Energy Efficiency in Emerging Economies Programme (E4 Programme) since 2014. E4 works closely with six of the largest emerging economies – Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa – as well as within regions, such as Southeast Asia, Latin America and Africa, accelerating energy efficiency.

How IEA works:
– Policy development: we support the development of national strategies, targets, policies, regulations and monitoring systems.
– Research and analysis: we provide customised research and analysis to support and inform the decision-making of emerging economy officials responsible for energy efficiency policy.
– Thematic workshops: we bring together officials and experts from a range of countries to explore key topics and generate practical, locally-applicable solutions.
– Capacity building: we provide training for officials and future leaders, primarily through the E4 Training Weeks and a series of online, self-paced courses.

Each course offers a mix of lectures, interactive discussions and practical exercises that allow participants to learn from international best practices and each other.

The IEA Energy Efficiency Policy Training Week programme also includes joint sessions on assessing the potential for energy efficiency and communication campaigns.

The training is aimed at energy efficiency policymakers, principally from energy ministries and supporting institutions across Africa. We would, however, also accept applications from those in relevant sectors of industry or knowledge-based institutions.

Women are strongly encouraged to apply.
