Both the IEA and ETDE place a strong emphasis on working with international partners in order to fulfill the need for timely exchange of global information. To meet this goal, ETDE cooperates with other IEA agreements and has strong ties with other international organizations. These cooperative efforts allow ETDE to provide a broad information resource with significant benefits including:
- accelerating technological progress by filling in knowledge gaps
- encouraging co-operative advances and reducing duplicated research
- strengthening the database content and standardization
- ensuring worldwide coverage of energy information in specific areas
- providing additional resources and facilitating international communication by linking websites
- promoting ETDE visibility in other databases and directories
The following centers have information components which may be of interest to the ETDE community. ETDE strives to include publications generated by all the IEA agreements in its database.
- IEA Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (AIVC)
- IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEA GHG)
- IEA Heat Pump Centre (HPC)
- Climate Technology Initiative (CTI)
- IEA Coal Research -- The Clean Coal Centre
The ETDE World Energy Base (ETDEWEB) appears as a link under the Resources/Tools section on the UN-Energy website. The UN-Energy Newsletter debuted in June 2011 and is available for free viewing on their website.
ETDE shares synergistic goals with the clean energy search engine "reegle", each sharing a wealth of clean and sustainable energy-related information and both promoting outreach of this information to developing countries. reegle serves as a complementary resource to the ETDE database, drawing in additional information types/sources. The reegle site is a one-stop shop for all clean energy issues and allows the user to search over 250,000 documents, as well as the databases of their knowledge partners. reegle is a strategic product of REEEP, the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Partnership. REEEP works to reduce the barriers limiting the uptake of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies, with a primary focus on emerging markets and developing countries.
