Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Division

Divisions are no longer accepting new Division members, as Divisions will be coming to a stop at the end of 2023. A transition plan is underway to transfer Division activities to current or new advisory/working groups.


Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Division members are professionals who are currently involved in the areas of energy efficiency and renewable energy. Division members are often leading the execution of energy efficiency measures and the transition to renewable energy.

The Division’s purpose is to advance all aspects of renewable energy engineering and energy efficiency, both on the demand and supply sides for supporting sustainable clean energy. The primary focus includes energy generation and storage, and energy efficiency, in context of the Paris Accord, which limits global warming to 2 degrees Celsius with a target of 1.5 degrees.
