Improving Policies through Energy Efficiency Indicators (IPEEI)

The Improving Policies through Energy Efficiency Indicators (IPEEI) Task Group supports the implementation of energy efficiency monitoring methods in member countries by monitoring National Energy Efficiency Action Plans, delivering cross-country comparison of energy efficiency trends in G20 countries and providing training and capacity building on energy efficiency indicators for G20–IPEEC member countries and others.

Recent developments

Current activities

IPEEI’s recent projects centre on:

  • Extending country coverage and developing more national reports on energy efficiency monitoring;
  • Continuing bilateral programmes on energy efficiency monitoring;
  • Developing a dedicated tool to monitor countries’ energy efficiency action plans through indicators on a voluntary basis;
  • Participating in activities of the G20 End-Use Data and Energy Efficiency Metrics (EUDEEM) initiative; and
  • Developing a regional database in Latin America on national energy efficiency policies.


In the past years, the task group has:

  • Played a key role in improving energy efficiency policy frameworks in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region by creating a network of 13 Latin American countries to exchange information on energy efficiency policies and their monitoring, policy evaluation, and implementation.
  • Carried out the Baseline Energy Efficiency Indicator (BIEE) Programme jointly with ADEME, AFD, GIZ and UN ECLAC, including developing databases, publishing 12 national and one regional report(s) on energy efficiency indicators with national governments;
  • Conducted cross-country comparisons on the recent energy efficiency trends of G20 countries, based on a centralised data collection system (30 energy efficiency indicators) and published a second report on G20 countries’ energy efficiency trends and a related data mapper;
  • Initiated a bilateral capacity building project between France and Mexico’s National Commission for Energy Efficiency (CONUEE) on energy efficiency monitoring, supported by the AFD;
  • Initiated a bilateral project between ADEME and Brazil’s electric energy research company EPE to evaluate Brazil’s energy efficiency policies;
  • Contributed to the development and launch of the G20 Energy End-Use Data and Energy Efficiency Metrics (EUDEEM) initiative led by France and the IEA; and
  • Delivered extensive in country or regional training and capacity buildings on energy efficiency indicators for G20 and IPEEC countries, with participation opened to non-members.
