Press release date: August 4, 2010

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) would like to invite all constituents interested in energy efficiency and renewable energy resources to join the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to Joint Project Committee (JPC) 2.

Administered by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), JPC 2 addresses common terminology for energy efficiency and renewable energy resources. For the past few years, a number of government summits have put energy efficiency improvement at the top of the policy agenda, highlighting the key role it plays in increasing energy security and reducing greenhouse gas emissions while enhancing economic development and innovation. The involvement of such a wide variety of stakeholders, necessary to further these objectives, makes it essential to set up common terms and definitions for high-level concepts regarding energy efficiency and renewables.

ISO/IEC JPC 2 aims to establish terms and definitions that will serve as the basis for a common language for regulations, standards, technologies, research, training, and trade in the field of energy efficiency and renewables. Benefits anticipated from the development of common terminology include: a common understanding among international stakeholders of transversal concepts and associated terms; the development of regional and national regulations and incentives programs; increased use of related standards; and reinforced business competitiveness.

Twenty countries are involved in the work of ISO/IEC JPC 2 through their national standards bodies. U.S. contributions are coordinated through the ANSI-administered U.S. TAG to JPC 2. All interested stakeholders are encouraged to participate in this TAG. For more information, contact Rachel Howenstine, ANSI program manager, ISO P membership (212.642.4938; rhowenstine@ansi.org).
