ETI banner Energy technology initiatives

The IEA provides support for international collaboration on energy technology research, development, deployment and information dissemination.  These energy technology initiatives (formally known as Implementing Agreements or 'IAs') function within a framework created by the IEA - the International Framework for International Energy Technology Collaboration - in support of energy security, economic growth, environmental protection and engagement worldwide.  In these groups, IEA member countries, non-member countries, businesses, industries, international organisations and non-government organisations carry out energy technology-related activities.
