This well-established and internationally recognised Committee works on improving power plant performance worldwide. Market structures, technologies, environmental standards, and other factors are changing the way the electricity sector operates and are posing new challenges for power plant operators around the world. New strategies, greater collaboration within the industry, and new tools are required to make it possible to collect, analyse, and leverage plant performance initiatives.
The Committee's main objective is to promote international data exchange and best practices for generating plant performance and to achieve the most effective use of generation assets and energy resources worldwide. The new generating plant performance indicators database is at the centre of the process.
Energy Efficiency Policies and Indicators (EEI) in partnership with ADEME
The recent developments in the global energy sector, including the rising prices and the mounting concerns about security of supply and the environment, are leading to the growing interest in improving efficiency of energy use throughout the entire value chain.
The main objective of the Committee work is to promote and support development, introduction and implementation of energy efficiency policies around the world taking into account the international experience, including the evaluation of the impact of energy efficiency policies and measures on the actual energy efficiency performance of national economies, industries and other economic activities and various consumer groups.
Cleaner Fossil Fuel Systems (CFFS) : in partnership with US DOE
Given the growing concerns about the environmental performance of fossil fuels, it is imperative to find ways for deployment of cleaner and more efficient fossil fuels combustion technologies. Cleaner systems mitigate the adverse consequences of the use of fossil fuels and permit their positive qualities to be more fully harnessed for economic and social development.
The Committee promotes the understanding and knowledge worldwide of the strategic role of fossil fuels in meeting the growing energy demand and securing energy supplies, focusing in particular on the existing and emerging technologies for cleaner use of fossil fuels.
