IIEC was founded in 1984 to dramatically increase the use of energy efficiency as an important clean energy approach in developing countries. We believe local presence is the best way to bring about results and, through our regional offices all over the world, we have been effective in bringing about progress in energy efficiency policy and implementation that has both reduced energy demand by more than 300 MW and fostered economic development in the countries we serve. IIEC works with stakeholders across all sectors to connect international best practice with the unique needs of the communities in which we operate, combining sound energy efficiency, Demand-Side Management (DSM) and renewable energy policy with hands-on implementation in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and encourage sustainable development.

Through its global network, IIEC partners with both public and private sectors, NGOs, community groups, universities and other stakeholders to develop, implement, and evaluate energy-efficiency policies, programs, and projects. The activities are often multi-disciplined in nature, requiring interactions between professionals at the federal, state, and local governments in partnership with industry.
