IEA Technology Collaboration Programmes (TCPs)

Last updated: 21 August 2023

The IEA TCPs support the work of independent, international groups of experts and industries to lead programmes and projects on a variety of energy technologies and related issues. A number of IEA TCPs foster cooperation on social dimensions of clean energy, including the Users TCP, providing insights on the design, social acceptance and usability of clean energy technologies, and the Wind TCP, examining social acceptance of renewables infrastructure. The Users TCP focusses on the vital role of people in energy technology systems and sees user-centred energy systems as critical for delivering socially and politically acceptable energy transitions. For example, the Users TCP has launched a Behavioural Insights Platform, which brings together government policy makers and other experts to share knowledge and experiences applying behavioural insights to energy policy.
