The workshop will bring together policy makers, representatives from international standardisation organisations and other key stakeholders engaged in activities that promote energy efficiency and renewable energy. The workshop provides an opportunity to discuss how to improve the engagement of stakeholders in international standardisation and how to ensure that international standards support the transition towards more sustainable energy systems. A key topic that will be explored during the workshop is how to facilitate the development and use of systemic approaches both within policy making and standardisation.
The workshop aims at raising awareness on and strengthen the value of the positive contribution and development of International Standards to respond to the global energy challenge and thus address:
The design and implementation of public policies on EE+RE may take various forms and require diverse mechanisms and tools, such as:
Standards based on consensus between stakeholders have been and are being developed at all levels (professional, national, regional and international) to serve as tools to:
Whether from a policy measures’ perspective or along technology pathways, energy efficiency or the deployment of renewable energy are better addressed using systemic approaches, where standards may provide a tool box to support the collective and individual efforts such as for:
Considering the priority given to EE+RE across the world, such standards have been and are being produced and published extensively, at all levels, whether national, regional or international, and as much by the formal standardization system as by professional groups or private standardization bodies with, paradoxically, the risk of confusing users, misinterpretation of requirements or creating barriers to the deployment of adequate technologies and best practices.
The consolidation of standards into consensus based international standards is therefore desirable when are at stakes:
The workshop will enable high level experts in policy making and international standardization to exchange on the following goals, eventually leading to the consolidation and maintenance of a strategic roadmap for the development and use of International Standards:
