This is the first electronic issue of e-notes, a newsletter that IIEC started in hard-copy format for the international energy conservation community in the early nineties. During the late nineties, when IIEC was merged into another organization, e-notes disappeared. Throughout the merger, we continued to get questions from our friends in the community about IIEC's activities and e-notes. In mid-2003, IIEC re-established itself as an independent not-for-profit NGO, and we thought it would now be an appropriate time to resume e-notes in an electronic format. Starting with this issue, we will send e-notes to all our friends and supporters every three months to keep them informed about the exciting activities that IIEC is involved in through its offices in Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg, Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangkok, Manila, London, and Washington. The first provides examples of how things have changed in IIEC with the changes in both the markets and the nature of the organization (e.g., 95% of IIECs staff comprises local experts based in our developing-country offices). And those of you who have been associated with the organization for a long time will recognize a characteristic IIEC trait -- a certain excitement about innovative approaches toward energy conservation.

While we expect this first issue of e-notes to reach a number of our friends, we hope that they will forward the email to other friends in the community around the world. Specifically, we would very much appreciate it if you could forward this to members of the IIEC Alumni … former Board members, clients, funders, staff, interns, and well-wishers… so that they can tell us their whereabouts by emailing their coordinates to This email address is being protected from spambots.

There is also additional impetus for resuming e-notes -- this year marks the 20th anniversary year of the organization. We are planning to hold a reception for our friends in the Washington, DC area on the evening of 28 October. Details will to follow on our new website at www.iiec.org. Meanwhile, if you are planning to be in the DC area, RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let us know.
