At the meeting of the International Energy Agency (IEA) on 14 – 15 May 2007 Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs called for an International Agreement on Energy Efficiency, which would initially bring together the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and key developing countries such as China and India. The agreement would focus on promoting energy efficiency worldwide and include various areas of co-operation such as regulatory co-operation, information exchange on energy saving strategies, methods of measurement, and research co-operation on energy efficient technologies. It was proposed that the G8 Gleneagles Dialogue should function as a governing board for this agreement. In a recent communiqué the IEA members declared their willingness to implement energy efficiency measures but did not actually address the issue of an International Agreement.
