We are the International Energy Foundation - the IEF. We are a non-profit group of scientists, researchers, engineers and others from around the world working together. Our mission is to facilitate the transfer of research and technology in all areas of energy with special emphasis on developing countries. We are interested in better ways to produce, transmit and conserve energy with respect to the technical, economic and human dimensional elements including global climate change and sustainable development.

We have an international board of directors and advisors, bringing a global perspective to our operations.

Current projects include the global energy congress ENERGEX in Sydney, Australia. Details will be available later this year. Future location is Vancouver, Canada in 2011. Other projects include the development of an energy security conference in Japan. Over the past number of years the Foundation has also worked with other energy researchers from Egypt, China, Croatia, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates.

We have set up several Regional Headquarters to provide a focal point for international information networks so that people from around the world can access the latest research data.

Other energy organizations are devoted to specific forms of energy, or they are associated with particular industries, government and other interests.

We deal with energy in the broadest sense - with all forms of energy. We go beyond national boundaries and we are reaching the people in 175 countries who are working with energy directly in their own research labs and offices. If you are interested in learning more about energy and, if you would like to share what you have already learned with the rest of the world, join us. There is no membership fee.
