The C3E International Initiative deals with strategies, policies and measures to increase the promotion of women in the field of clean energy and energy research in particular.
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.
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.
The AMF Technology Collaboration Programme’s (AMF-TCP) vision is that advanced motor fuels, applicable to all modes of transport, significantly contribute to a sustainable society around the globe. The mission of AMF is to advance the understanding and appreciation of the potential of advanced motor fuels toward transport sustainability. We provide sound scientific information and technology assessments facilitating informed and science-based decisions regarding advanced motor fuels on all levels of decision-making.
The Technology Collaboration Programme on Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (HEV TCP) vision is that the electric drivetrain 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 4E Annex Electronic Devices and Networks Annex - EDNA (working period 2017 – 2019) Task 3: "Intelligent efficiency". Project: "Basket of products testing"
The "Electronic Devices and Networks Annex “EDNA” has emerged from the background of the global increase of electronic devices and digital solutions, which requires the evaluation of the energy efficiency of these devices. Energy efficiency measures should be developed and improved, and technological and regulatory challenges need to be addressed. The aim of EDNA is to develop policy and strategy recommendations for decision-makers, concerning network connected devices.
Promotion of energy efficiency of poly-phase electric AC motors and motor systems in relevant applications as pumps, fans, compressors and mechanical drives that are generally used in industry, infrastructure and large buildings. This work also included new technologies such as frequency inverters (adjustable speed drive) and permanent magnet motors.
In the Mapping and Benchmarking work (formerly M&B Annex) the following product were analyzed: domestic refrigeration (update), dishwashers, settop boxes, transformers and lights, for which this report includes most relevant results and the related M&B publications. It also introduces the 2015-2016 work on motors, liquid chillers, and water boilers.
The goal is the active participation and representation of the Austrian position and interests in EDNA as well as exchange with and dissemination of results. Austria will contribute to Tasks C “Policies for Connected Devices”, and lead Task D “Total Energy Model”. In addition, Austria also participates and contributes to the “Centre of Excellence”, as well as to the project “Basket of products testing”.
The Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex (PECTA) is one of four Annexes of the IEA 4E TCP. PECTA shall assess the efficiency benefit of the emerging WBG technology for different relevant power electronic applications and furthermore serves as an independent knowledge platform for policy makers and all kind of parties and stakeholders that are interested in WBG.

The main objective of Annex 33 is to support the technology development of key components and systems. Market implementation and transformation will be supported by the analysis and development of the necessary political framework and instruments. The current technological, economic and political barriers are to be identified, solutions developed and the barriers gradually removed.
The main objective of Annex 33 “Stationary Applications” is to identify potential markets and possible fuels for fuel cells.
The overall objective of the project is the advancement of fuel cells in transportation applications. To ensure a comprehensive penetration of the automotive market, the focus will be laid on the cost-reduction potential of fuel cell components and systems including hydrogen storage, the hydrogen infrastructure and fuel cell vehicles in public transportation as well as fuel cell powered utility vehicles.
