  • ESIG(Energy Systems Integration Group)

    As a non-profit international organization in the area of energy system integration technology established in 2018 led by NREL, the U.S. Renewable Energy Research Institute, 156 organizations around the world participate.

IEA CERT(Committee on Energy Research and Technology) activity status

CERT, made up of senior experts from IEA member states, develops effective energy technologies and policies to improve energy security, promote environmental protection, and sustain economic growth. CERT supervises the technical forecasting, analysis, and RDD&D (Research, Development, Demonstration, and Deployment) strategy of the IEA Secretariat in accordance with the guidance of the IEA Board of Directors.

The IEA operates 36 technology collaboration programs (TCP) under 4 working parties, and advances energy technology around the world by autonomously sharing multilateral knowledge and resources by experts from public-private organizations in each country related to international energy technology RDD&D.

- EUWP(Energy End-Use(energy saving)) : 14 TCP
- WPFF(Fossil fuel) : 5 TCP
- REWP(Renewable energy) : 9 TCP
- FPCC(Fusion technology adjustment) : 8 TCP
