The IEA provides support for international collaboration on energy technology R&D, deployment and information dissemination. These groups function within a framework created by the IEA - the International Framework for International Energy Technology Collaboration. The views, findings and publications of these international groups (formally called Implementing Agreements) do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the IEA Secretariat or of all its individual member countries. OECD Member countries, autonomous OECD non-member countries, intergovernmental organisations, non-governmental organisations and private sector entities may participate. For more information, see our Technology Agreements page.

Clean Coal Centre

The world's foremost provider of information on efficient coal supply and use, IEA Coal Research - The Clean Coal Centre enhances innovation and continued development of coal as a clean source of energy. This is achieved by gathering, assessing and distributing knowledge on the energy efficient and environmentally sustainable use of coal, and in particular by: - undertaking in-depth studies on topics of special interest; - assessing the technical, economic and environmental performance; - identifying where further research, development, demonstration and dissemination are needed; - reporting the findings in a balanced and objective way without political or commercial bias and showing, where appropriate, the opportunities for technology transfer worldwide. All the above include coal's use with other fuels (such as waste and biomass). IEA Coal Research is a collaborative project established in 1975 involving member countries of the International Energy Agency (IEA).
