Welcome to IEA Demand Side Management Energy Efficiency Technology Collaboration Program (DSM TCP)

IEA Demand Side Management Energy Efficiency Technology Collaboration Program (DSM TCP)  is an international collaboration of 16 countries and 3 sponsors working together to develop and promote opportunities for demand-side management (DSM). DSM offers solutions to problems such as load management, energy efficiency, strategic conservation and related activities.

The work of the DSM Technology Collaboration Program is organised through a series of Tasks and reported in a number of publications. It is managed by an Executive Committee (ExCo). Visit the News page for the latest information on our activities.

Upcoming Events

  1. Webinar on the new World Energy Outlook-2018
    16 November 2018
    The new IEA World Energy Outlook (WEO) was released on 13 November and in this webinar you can hear about the key findings from two of the Outlook’s lead authors, Tim Gould and Brent Wanner. The 2018 edition provides updated analysis to show what the latest data, technology trends and policy announcements might mean for the energy sector to 2040. It also outlines an integrated way to meet multiple sustainable development goals: limiting the global temperature rise in line with the Paris Agreement, addressing air pollution, and ensuring universal access to energy. These points of orientation allow for rigorous thinking about the future against a backdrop of cost reductions in key clean energy technologies, the continued vitality of shale in the United States, and the fast-changing dynamics of energy investment. This year’s Outlook includes a special focus on electricity. The future is electrifying, with low-carbon technologies on the rise and electricity demand set to grow at twice the pace of energy demand as a whole. But what will tomorrow’s power sector look like? How will it incentivise investment and ensure reliable supply, and what share of our total energy needs can ultimately be met by electricity?

Webinar on the new World Energy Outlook-2018 Friday, 16 November, 2018, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM CET Speakers: Tim Gould, Head of Division for Energy Supply and Investment Outlook and Brent Wanner, Senior Energy Analyst and Lead on Power Sector Modelling and Analysis If you register, you will receive a confirmation mail with information on how to join the webinar (see also the system requirements). The annual World Energy Outlook is the IEA’s flagship publication and a vital guide to future energy trends. In this webinar, the report’s main authors will present its key findings and also responding to questions and comments, submitted either online during the event or in advance by email to WEO@iea.org.

    Duration: 1h
    Two years ago, the EU appeared to be well on the way to meeting its 2020 energy efficiency targets. 2014 final energy consumption was lower than in any year since the 1980s, and lower than the level required in 2020. Since then, energy consumption has risen in two consecutive years and looks set to have kept on increasing in 2017. If these short-term trends continue, the 2020 targets will be missed. This webinar will analyse the drivers of recent increases in EU energy consumption, sector-by-sector; assess the likely short-term evolution of consumption; and invite participants to discuss the implications for policy makers.
