IEA HPT Task 41: Cold Climate Heat Pumps

The aim was to increase the efficiency of outdoor air heat pumps in cold climates in locations with low outside temperatures of up to -25°C. Newly developed heat exchanger concepts were tested and optimized regarding their icing behaviour. Different circuit modifications were modelled and simulation studies for low ambient temperatures were carried out.

Mapping of IEA TCPs

The intention of this project was to visualize the current activities of the IEA Energy Technology Network and to identify possible gaps and overlaps. The mapping includes 185 ongoing tasks and annexes (Status September 2017).

IEA Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR TCP)

The objective of EOR TCP is to disseminate the results of research and development for efficient use of hydrocarbon reservoirs. The EOR TCP supports national efforts to reduce costs of existing technologies and to research new technologies to enhance reservoir oil recovery.

The Technology Collaboration Programme includes the collaboration, the exchange of relevant information and networking in the area of fluidized bed conversion of fuels applied for clean energy production.

IEA Action Network "Intelligent Energy Systems": International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN TCP)

The International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) creates a strategic platform to support high-level government attention and action for the accelerated development and deployment of smarter, cleaner electricity grids around the world.

IEA - Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Technology Collaboration Programme (HEV-TCP)

The vision of the Technology Collaboration Programme on Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (HEV TCP) is that the electric drive will be used as the predominant transportation mode in a sustainable transport system that is preferably powered by renewable energy and does not produce harmful emissions.

IEA - Advanced Motor Fuels Technology Collaboration Programme (AMF-TCP)

The AMF TCP's vision is a sustainable transport system that uses advanced, alternative, and renewable fuels; has low emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) and air pollutants; and meets needs for personal mobility and mobility of goods. AMF provides a solid basis for decision making in form of information and recommendations as well as an international forum for sharing best practices and pooling resources for the achievement of this vision.

District Heating and Cooling including Combined Heat and Power (IEA DHC/CHP)

The TCP on District Heating and Cooling (DHC) including Combined Heat and Power (CHP) was founded in 1983. It deals with the design, performance and operation of DHC and CHP systems as powerful tools for energy conservation and the reduction of environmental impacts of supplying heat.

IEA Heat Pumping Technologies (HPT)

The IEA Heat Pump Technologies programme develops and disseminates objective and balanced information on heat pumps, refrigeration technologies and air conditioning with the aim of exploiting the environmentally relevant and energetic potential of these technologies. This programme includes joint research projects, workshops, conferences and an information service (IEA Heat Pump Centre).

IEA-DHC Annex TS2: Implementation of Low Temperature District Heating Systems

The aim of the Annex TS2 is to implement low-temperature district heat networks (LT-DH or 4GDH, the 4th generation of district heating). Therefore, the Annex TS2 is a platform in which the prerequisites for the implementation are established with international experts.

IEA Wind Technology Collaboration Programme (IEA Wind TCP)

The mission of the Wind Energy Systems is to stimulate co-operation on wind energy research and development and to provide high quality information and analysis to member governments and commercial sector leaders: addressing technology development and deployment and its benefits, markets and policy instruments.

IEA Solar Heating and Cooling (SHC)

Since 1977 the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme supports joint research and development activities in the field of solar thermal technologies focusing solar thermal for heating and cooling of buildings, for industrial applications and in agriculture.

Concentrated Solar Power Technologies - SolarPACES

SolarPACES aims at significantly increasing the share of concentrated solar power (CSP) in the global production of renewable energies. To this end, SolarPACES supports technological development and partnerships for developing CSP through an international network of independent experts. It coordinates and advances solar technology research, by focusing on the next generation of technologies; provides recommendations to policy makers and organises international conferences and workshops. In order to increase the transparency of the market and reduce risks associated with project development, SolarPACES also develops guidelines and standards for CSP industries.

IEA Industrial Energy-Related Technologies and Systems (IETS TCP)

The Industrial Energy-Related Technology Programme (IETS) focuses on energy use in a broad range of industry sectors. It fosters international co-operation amongst relevant research strands, networking within and across industrial sectors, as well as exchange of information and knowledge between experts from industry, science and politics.

IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (GHG TCP)

The GHG programme funds research into technologies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It provides its members with information on the role that technology can take in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The programmes’ focus is on CO2 capture and storage, or carbon sequestration.

IEA Experts Group "R&D Priority Setting and Evaluation" (EGRD)

The IEA Experts Group (EGRD) was established by the Committee on Energy Research and Technology (CERT). It examines analytical approaches to energy technologies, policies, and research and development and evaluates the benefits of RTI policies. Its results and recommendations feed into IEA analysis, and enable a broad perspective of energy technology issues.

IEA Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme (EBC TCP)

The Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme by the IEA enables collaborative research and development projects amongst its 24 member countries. Thematically, it focuses on integrating energy efficient and sustainable technologies in buildings and communities.

IEA Demand Side Management Energy Efficiency (DSM TCP)

Demand Side Management (DSM) refers to the implementation of energy efficiency improvements and service management measures on the side of end users for optimising energy systems overall. This IEA-research programme pushes development of suitable technologies, applications and methods for end users and thus facilitates their preferential adoption in all political decisions on energy policy.
