Welcome to the Demand Side Management Technology Collaboration Program (DSM TCP)

The Demand Side Management 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.

  1. DSMU Webinar: The International Energy Agency’s Efficient World Scenario
    21 March 2019
    Register here (check your local time) Duration: 1h The International Energy Agency (IEA) has developed an Efficient World Scenario (EWS) to highlight the benefits to the global energy system from the adoption of cost-effective energy efficiency measures. This presentation will provide an overview of the EWS, which was published in the IEA’s Energy Efficiency 2018 report, and include an examination the potential efficiency gains in the transport, buildings and industry sectors and the policy measures needed to realise this potential.

  2. DSMU Webinar: From EU Project to Market Enabler: Creating the Marketplace for Sustainable Energy Assets
    18 April 2019
    Register here Is a “common language” alone enough to solve the finance gap for Sustainable Energy Asset (SEA) projects? Developed under SEAF H2020 (Sustainable Energy Asset Framework), a European Commission funded project led by Joule Assets Europe that ran from 2016 to 2018, eQuad is a holistic online platform and set of services created to bridge the gap between Sustainable Energy Asset (SEA) projects and financiers, catalysing market growth in Europe. Since its commercial launch in May 2018, over €160 million of SEA projects from 5 countries have been submitted to eQuad. Joule has now gone through multiple cycles of processing projects and matching them to investors. This webinar will therefore challenge Joule’s original hypothesis of the “finance gap” against real market experience post launch of the eQuad platform. Register here Speaker:
  3. IEA 4th Annual Global Conference on Energy Efficiency
    24 June 2019
    The International Energy Agency’s fourth annual Global Conference on Energy Efficiency will take place in Dublin, Ireland, on Monday 24 June. Irish Prime Minister, Mr Leo Varadkar, will open the invitation-only event, which will feature ministers, CEOs and heads of international organisations. Building on the success of previous events, we expect high-level participants from more than 50 countries. The conference will be an opportunity to develop global understanding of energy efficiency’s key role in the transformation of the global energy system and the key policy options available to governments. A particular focus will be the impact of digitalisation on energy efficiency, and the lessons learned from leaders around the world. The third annual conference, held in Paris in October 2018, featured a long list of dignitaries including energy ministers from Finland, Estonia and Japan, the CEOs of Schneider Electric and Scania, as well as leading figures from international organisations and NGOs. More information about the 4th annual Global Conference on Energy Efficiency will be made available in the coming weeks. For general enquiries please contact energy.efficiency@iea.org. For press enquiries please contact press@iea.org.
