International Energy Agency (IEA)

The IEA, based in Paris, is an intergovernmental organisation that acts as energy policy adviser to 28 member countries. Founded during the oil crisis of 1973-1974, the IEA’s initial role was to co-ordinate measures in times of oil supply emergencies. Its mandate has broadened to incorporate the ‘four Es’ of balanced energy policy-making: energy security, economic development, environmental protection and engagement of producers and consumers. Current work focuses on climate change policies, market reform, energy technology collaboration and energy research.
