During the period 2009-2014, Task 21 researched options for harmonising energy savings calculations, contributed to easier comparisons of international energy savings and researched next steps to further harmonise energy savings calculations.
The overall aim of DSM Task 21 was to identify basic concepts, calculation rules and systems for Energy Savings Calculations (ESC) standards. Both energy savings and emissions avoidance calculation methods and standards were evaluated for efficiency activities. Additionally a methodology was developed to nominate and describe the Demand Response products1. The Task also explored how and by what type of organisations these draft standards could be used (and improved) to increase international comparison evaluation of policies and measures. The Task focused on harmonisation and on preparation work to ease the work of standardization bodies like CEN and ISO.
The three primarily objectives of the Task were:
The actual research was carried out by the country experts, the Operating Agent, inputs from (experts involved in) standardisation bodies and Operating Agents and reports from other relevant IEA DSM Tasks. In general, the experts were responsible for identifying and obtaining information on ESC standards in their countries. The Operating Agent was responsible for mobilising inputs and comments from standardisation bodies, from other IEA DSM Tasks, and for analysing and drawing conclusions from the information provided by the experts.
Two regional (Europe and Asia) workshops were organised. In Addition to mobilising input for standardisation bodies the developed work was presented in a format to be used for training purposes.
