IEA LAUNCHES CLIMATE CHANGE AND RENEWABLE ENERGY WEBSITES
The International Energy Agency today launched two policy information Websites.
The “Dealing with Climate Change” Website features data on energy-related policies and measures
taken or planned by the IEA’s 26 Member countries, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It contains
more than 800 records collected between 1999 and 2002.
The second Website, “Renewable Energy Policies and Measures in IEA Countries,” contains detailed
references to some 160 pieces of legislation designed to encourage the development and market
uptake of renewable energy sources.
The websites provide zero-cost, user-friendly access to the databases. Visitors can search for
information according to country, policy type, technology, sector, year of implementation and other
criteria.
These new interactive services are intended to complement the policy analysis work carried out by the
IEA on climate change mitigation and renewable energy markets. They are part of the IEA effort to
provide support for decision-makers, policy experts, researchers and scholars, as well as to provide
practical information to the business community and the broader public.
Created in 1974, the IEA is an intergovernmental energy research and policy forum for 26
industrialised countries. Through the IEA, member governments, working with non-member
countries, take joint measures to meet oil supply emergencies, share energy information, and promote
the integration of energy and environment policies and development of rational, sustainable energy
programmes including through alternative energy and energy efficiency.
