IEA Demand Side Management Energy Efficiency (DSM TCP)
The aim of the IEA's Demand-Side Management Technology Collaboration Programme (DSM TCP) is to promote tools and information on demand-side management and energy efficiency with view to global development and new market openings. Positive results of this collaborative work between over 14 countries include more reliability and security of energy systems, a reduction of carbon dioxide and other harmful gases as well as less system costs and price volatility.
The DSM programme focuses on topics such as load management, energy efficiency, smart grids, energy services, and the role of individuals in energy consumption and related activities. DSM thus provides a sort of "toolkit" for governments and energy companies, in order to optimise energy supply and the provision of energy services.
