Presentation: IEC and energy efficiency October 2019

Energy efficiency is the biggest and often largely untapped energy resource in the world. This presentation outlines the IEC approach to energy efficiency, definitions of energy efficiency, barriers, and many examples of how to improve energy efficiency of systems and devices.


Presentation: IEC and SDGs October 2019 icons

All sustainable development goals rely on electricity. Electric power is the golden thread that alleviates poverty and hunger, increases access to healthcare, education, clean water and light after dark. It facilitates daily chores and allows women to contribute differently to local economies, increasing their status. IEC work is behind the scene but essential. It is technology focused and only few IEC Standards can be directly attributed to a single SDG. This presentation outlines where and how the IEC contributes to SDGs. Rather than text, it uses clear icons for faster communication.


Presentation: Artificial intelligence across industries

This presentation provides an overview of the IEC White Paper on Artificial Intelligence which examines the potential of this technology in areas such as the home, manufacturing, transportation and energy. Although AI is still in its early stages, it is already profoundly impacting society, and new ethical and social challenges are emerging which need to be addressed.


Briefing paper: Maritime transport – en

Nowadays, maritime transport sustains worldwide trade and fosters economic development. Global maritime trade continues to grow annually and the number of seaborne passengers increases commensurately, as giant cruise ships become ever more popular. This continued growth poses a number of challenges which the shipping industry must address in order to continue competing with other forms of transport. New technologies are being investigated or used to help shipping meet these challenges. Most of them are dependent on electricity which is a green and particularly versatile form of energy.

Briefing paper: Aviation – en

The boom in air transport is prompting airports and aircraft to modernize using facial and voice recognition, LED light displays, electric and autonomous vehicles… IEC Standards play a key role in the emergence of new technologies used in airports and aircraft. They also play a vital part in furthering the deployment of renewable energy sources in the aviation and airline business. Furthermore, the IEC Quality Assessment System for Electronic Components (IECQ) helps to ensure that various electronic parts, devices and systems used in airports and aircraft meet the specified requirement.

Infographic: Connected cars – Driving the future

As part of the IoT, connected cars enable various levels of automated driving and are opening up new in-vehicle services. Several IEC technical committees produce International Standards which support the technology in these cars.


Presentation: IEC, the electric car and beyond IEVE 2017

Most developing countries are focusing on the development of the electric car. However, far beyond the individual electric car, there is a growing opportunity and need for the electrification of all sorts of vehicles. Furthermore, in developing countries a more sustainable approach to mobility is needed. This presentation outlines some of the challenges as well as IEC work that underpins all forms of transportation.


Presentation: IEC work for Smart Cities

This slide provides an overview of IEC work for cities. The IEC provides the majority of the International Standards needed to safely interconnect and automate much of the city infrastructure that generates or uses electricity and contains electronics.


IEC White Paper: Orchestrating infrastructure for sustainable Smart Cities – en, ru, zh, ko

By 2050, it is projected that 67% of the global population will live in cities. Smart cities are necessary to reduce emissions and to handle this rapid urban growth.

However cities, as we know them, are faced with a complex challenge – the traditional processes of planning, procuring and financing are not adequate for the needs of smart cities. Their development requires the right environment for smart solutions to be effectively adopted and used.
