The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) called for a global taskforce to coordinate technology-based energy efficiency initiatives in an effort to increase coherence, and reduce duplication and wasted time, as it launched its white paper, "Coping with the Energy Challenge", at the World Energy Congress in Montreal.

This is the first report that has attempted to outline how the energy chain needs to be altered to achieve ambitious carbon emission reduction targets of 20% by 2020. In light of its findings and with the demand for electricity expected to triple by 2050, it also identifies areas offering highest potential for short and medium term energy efficiency results and their underlying standardization needs.
