IEA International Workshop

 The Workshop of the International Energy Agency (IEA) on highly efficient energy utilisation in factories and buildings was held with the cooperation of Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) and the Energy Conservation Center, Japan (ECCJ). The following is the summary of the Workshop.

1. Objective :
   This Workshop was held to exchange information focusing on the advanced highly efficient energy utilisation, aiming that it could be redounded to establishment of the future's energy conservation strategies in the IEA member countries as well as it would be useful for further enhancing the domestic enterprisers' comprehension and cooperation on energy conservation measures in Japan.
 On the day of the Workshop, In addition to 11 speakers in the IEA member countries including Japan, as many as about 190 persons who engaged in energy conservation in governments, industries and academic sectors and others participated in the event. At the Workshop, advanced technologies and measures including case studies regarding highly efficient utilization in factories and buildings were introduced, and the role and required co-operation between governments and industries towards the next generation's highly efficient energy utilisation were actively discussed including information exchange.
2. Date :
   9:30 - 17:30, 19th January 2004
3. Place :
   Conference Hall, Otemachi Sankei Plaza (4th floor, 1-7-2 Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo , Japan)
4. Theme :
   Seeking Frontiers on Highly Efficient Energy Utilisation in Factories and Buildings
5. Participant : 
   188 persons participated in total, which consisted of 19 delegates from the IEA member countries including Japan and 169 persons including observers, persons in organizers concerned and the press, as its details are shown below.
   188 persons participated in total Overseas delegates : 6 persons
Domestic delegates : 11 persons
Observers : 134 persons
The press : 3 persons
Organizers : 34 persons
  Total : 188 persons
6. Outline :
   Following Opening Session, under the co-chair of Mr. Harrington, Head of Energy Efficiency Policy Analysis Division in IEA, and Mr. Sato, Director of Energy Efficiency and Conservation Division in METI, presentations and discussions were made at the Workshop, which was divided into 3 sessions as follows.
1)   Highly efficient energy utilisation in each individual factory or building by means of advanced measures and technologies such as an integrated management approach and etc., including case studies
2)  Highly efficient energy utilisation in multiple factories or buildings in an area such as an industrial complex, by means of newly developed measures and technologies, including case studies
3)  The role and challenges of and required co-operation between governments (central and local) and private sectors.
 The co-chairs' summary and comments were put forward in Closing Session in which the Workshop was rounded off with the following comment.

"As for the presentations of each session, opinion exchanges and discussions were actively performed, with perception and indication such as (a) the importance of analysis for energy-saving investment and cost benefit, (b) the difficulty of introduction of new technologies like Pinch technology and the necessity of some new policies and measures and (c) possibility to set up, adjust and harmonize the common target that can be compared internationally. Taking the opportunity of this Workshop, it is expected that the opinion exchanges between people engaged in energy conservation in the IEA member countries are further encouraged for more progresses of energy saving each country, and that better amenity life of human beings can be realized through stable supply of energy and solution of global warming problems."
