About this course
Appliance Energy Efficiency Policy
Worldwide electricity consumption is expected to grow by 60 percent by 2030,
driven in part by the increasing use of equipment, appliances, lighting and
other energy using devices.
Energy-efficient equipment and appliances benefit both consumers and
governments; increasing efficiency lowers energy costs, enhances energy
security, helps expand access to energy services and reduces harmful
emissions. In particular, recent evidence shows that
energy efficiency policies have helped halve the energy consumption of
in the longest-running appliance efficiency programmes. In the countries with the longest running appliance energy efficiency policies, the policies have contributed to reduction in energy consumption of key appliances by half.
This course aims to prepare participants to successfully advance appliance energy
efficiency policy. It does so by
introducing the fundamentals to effectively design and implement an energy
efficiency policy package
by integrating regulations, information, and incentives to move appliances
towards higher efficiency standards. It was developed by the IEA in collaboration with the SEAD Initiative.
The course consists of seven modules that, together, provide a comprehensive
approach to engage and challenge course participants to consider the
many decisions and options involved in advancing energy efficiency
policy. Participants in the course will, on completion, have a solid
understanding of the
as well as the
to leverage their own expertise to contribute
to advancing energy efficiency in appliances and equipment.
The course lasts
approximately 25 hours, and each participant is in charge of managing their learning experience.
Target group and participants
This course is
intended for a diverse audience, catering to individuals such as policymakers, congressional staffers, NGO employees, business owners, and concerned citizens. It aims to encourage them to think critically about existing energy efficiency policies and explore avenues for enhancement.

Each module has a mandatory evaluation or activity that the participant must perform to complete the module.
From modules 1 to 7 there will be a final mandatory evaluation of the
contents. These evaluations are 5-10 questions with 60 minutes to answer
once it starts. To successfully pass these assessments, participants are
required to provide accurate responses to a minimum of 75% of the
questions. Each participant has 8 attempts to pass each of the
assessments. To pass the course the participant must pass all the
