The aim of the 4E TCP is to promote energy efficiency as the key to ensuring safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy systems.
As an international platform for collaboration between governments, the 4E TCP provides policy guidance to its members and other governments concerning energy using equipment and systems.
The 4E TCP prioritises technologies and applications with significant energy consumption and energy saving potential within the residential, commercial and industrial sectors (not including transport).
To meet its aims, the 4E TCP harnesses the expertise of governments, industry, experts and other TCPs for joint research related to the development and deployment of energy efficient equipment.
To achieve its aims, the 4E TCP will:
Collect data, analyse information, share expertise and pool resources, including:
Gather information about the energy consumed by equipment and systems, relevant policies and savings potential from 4E TCP members and other sources.
Support and strengthen government policy and regulation, including:
Disseminate information to develop greater understanding and promote government actions that encourage the uptake of energy efficient equipment, including:
