Clean Energy Ministerial - Super-Efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment

Clean Energy Ministerial

The Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) Initiative is a voluntary collaboration among governments working to promote the manufacture, purchase, and use of energy-efficient appliances, lighting, and equipment worldwide. SEAD engages governments and the private sector to accelerate the pace of market transformation for energy‐efficient equipment and appliances.

Organizational and Decision Making Structure: 

SEAD is a task within the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation.

SEAD is supported by the Collaborative Labeling and Appliance Standards Program as the operating agent, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for technical analysis, and has collaborative relationships with the International Energy Agency Efficient Electrical End-Use Equipment (4E) Implementing Agreement, the UN Sustainable Energy for All initiative, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Expert Group on Energy Efficiency and Conservation, and the United Nations Environment Programme’s en.lighten initiative.

SEAD was first announced in December 2009 by former U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, accompanied by former Indian Environmental Minister Jairam Ramesh, at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change conference of the parties in Copenhagen, Denmark. SEAD became a task within IPEEC in January 2010 and was launched as a CEM initiative in July 2010. SEAD participating governments provide significant in-kind and financial contributions to the Initiative, including generous support from the U.S. Department of State.

Monitoring and Reporting Procedures: 

Not specified

Co-financing Requirements (if applicable): 

Not applicable

Other Eligibility Criteria Beyond Geography and Income: 

The Super-Efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative’s partner governments are working together in voluntary activities to accomplish the stated goals. Not all partners participate in every activity. Instead, they engage actively in their areas of interest through financing, staff, consultant experts, or other resources. All SEAD partners participate in information-sharing efforts, such as implementation schedules and technical details of their appliance and equipment efficiency programs.
