Briefing paper: Smart train, metro and tramway systems – en

Travelling by train, tram or metro are favourite modes of transport for many of us: no traffic jams, no need to focus on the road ahead… we can just sit back and read a book, consult our smartphones or even fall asleep. One thing we rarely do, however, is to think about the hundreds of electrical and electronic devices and systems which enable trains, metros and trams to depart and travel to their destination safely.

Briefing paper (e-tech articles): Focus on solar energy – en

This brochure contains a selection of articles from our magazine, e-tech, on the work of IEC for solar energy.


Presentation: Global energy interconnection White Paper

Global energy interconnection (GEI) is technically highly complex. It will require a level of dependability never seen before. International Standards inherently contain solutions that will help pre-address this complexity and they will play a crucial role in mastering dependability upfront. The global energy interconnection White Paper aims to assess the worldwide needs, benefits, policies and preconditions for GEI. This presentation provides a brief summary of the GEI White Paper including recommendations for regulators, industry and the IEC community.



Briefing paper: IEC work for Energy Efficiency – en, fr, pt

The IEC defines energy efficiency as the ratio or other quantitative relationship between an output of performance, service goods or energy, and an input of energy.
