It was founded to “dramatically increase the use of energy efficiency as an important clean energy approach in developing countries.” They have regional offices all over the world, and as a result they have “been effective in bringing about progress in energy efficiency policy and implementation that has both reduced energy consumption by more than 300 MWs and fostered economic development in the countries they serve.” The IIEC connects “international best practice with the unique needs of the communities in which we operate, combining sound energy efficiency and renewable energy policy with hands-on implementation in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and encourage sustainable development.”
