The IEA acts as energy policy advisor for its 28 member countries in their effort to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for their citizens.
Founded during the oil crisis of 1974, its initial role was to coordinate measures in times of oil supply emergencies. But during the last decades, the energy markets have changed, and so has the IEA. It now focuses well beyond oil crisis management on broader energy issues, including climate change policies, market reform, energy technology collaboration and outreach to the rest of the world.
With a staff of around 150, mainly energy experts and statisiticians from its 26 members, the IEA conducts a broad programme of energy research, data compilation, publications and public dissemination of the latest energy policy analyses and recommendations on good practices.
The IEA collects, processes and publishes data and information on energy production, trade, stocks, transformation, consumption, prices and taxes as well as on greenhouse gas emissions for the 30 OECD Member countries and over 100 non-OECD countries world-wide.
