The International Energy Agency (IEA), an autonomous agency, was established in November 1974.
Its primary mandate was – and is – two-fold: to promote energy security amongst its membercountries through collective response to physical disruptions in oil supply, and provide authoritativeresearch and analysis on ways to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for its 28 membercountries and beyond. The IEA carries out a comprehensive programme of energy co-operation among
its member countries, each of which is obliged to hold oil stocks equivalent to 90 days of its net imports.
The Agency’s aims include the following objectives:
Secure member countries’ access to reliable and ample supplies of all forms of energy; in particular,through maintaining effective emergency response capabilities in case of oil supply disruptions.
Promote sustainable energy policies that spur economic growth and environmental protectionin a global context – particularly in terms of reducing greenhouse-gas emissions that contributeto climate change.
Improve transparency of international markets through collection and analysis of energy data.
Support global collaboration on energy technology to secure future energy suppliesand mitigate their environmental impact, including through improved energyefficiency and development and deployment of low-carbon technologies.
Find solutions to global energy challenges through engagement
anddialogue with non-member countries, industry,
internationalorganisations and other stakeholders.
