Policies and Measures Database

Search the policies and measures database

Since 1999, the Energy Efficiency Policies and Measures database has been an indispensable source of information on energy efficiency policies and measures and underpins much of the policy analysis carried out by the IEA. It has primarily covered actions in IEA member countries but today it is expanding, with the aim of becoming the premier source of information on energy efficiency policies and measures globally.
