Australia ICOMOS reports that an ICOMOS International Working Group (WG), Energy Efficiency in Heritage Buildings, has been set up by Peter Cox (ICOMOS Ireland) as a preparatory step to setting up an International Scientific Committee (ISC). The draft resolution GA2011/33 Energy Conservation and Sustainable Development was put together by ICOMOS Ireland and ICOMOS Belgium and presented to the ICOMOS General Assembly (GA) in Paris December 2011. The resolution was adopted by acclamation.

Peter Phillips, Rachel Jackson and Helen Wilson have been listed as members of the International WG. These three Australia ICOMOS members met in Sydney on 23 April 2012 to discuss an Australian work program and the contribution that can be made toward the International WG. More details of the Australian contacts are on the Australia ICOMOS website
