Welcome to IEA Demand Side Management Energy Efficiency Technology Collaboration Program

IEA Demand Side Management Energy Efficiency Technology Collaboration Program (DSM TCP)  is an international collaboration of 15 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. BEHAVE 2016 conference and Task 24 workshop
    7 September 2016 - 9 September 2016
    University of Coimbra, Dept of Mathematics

    Behave 2016 - 4th European Conference on Behaviour and Energy Efficiency

    8 - 9 September 2016

    University of Coimbra, Portugal

    Special issue

    Behave 2016 aims to bring researchers and practitioners involved in end-use energy efficiency to share recent research, new technological developments and best practices on understanding and influencing behaviour related to energy efficiency. Research on behaviours associated with energy use plays a fundamental role to achieve a more sustainable energy system, in face of challenges such as security of supply, climate change and evolution to the smart grids.

    Contributions to Behave 2016 are expected to cover a wide range of topics related with energy efficiency and behaviours, namely:

    • promoting sustainable energy behaviours: instruments, interventions and evaluation of behaviour change
    • adoption and use of low carbon technologies
    • behavioural potential to facilitate the smart grid and demand response
    • end-use energy efficiency in buildings and organisations
    • behaviour in transport and mobility
    • behaviour integration into energy modelling
    • multidisciplinary approaches to energy behaviours
    • energy policies for promoting behaviour change

    Other topics related to energy efficiency and behaviours are welcome. Contributions reporting real-world studies are particularly appreciated.

    The official language of the conference is English. More information can be found here.

    7 September 2016, University of Coimbra

    This workshop is designed to provide an overview to the wider systemic issues to do with behaviour change and to provide more hands-on solutions on how to solve them collaboratively.

    It is led by the International Energy Agency Demand Side Management Programme's (IEA-DSM) Task 24, called ‘Behaviour Change in DSM - Helping the Behavior Changers’.

    More information can be found here.
