IIEC was established in 1984 in USA as a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization; and has regional offices in Thailand, India, and the Philippines. IIEC’s mission is to accelerate the global adoption of energy efficiency, renewable energy, clean transport and clean air policies, technologies, and practices to enable economic and environmentally sustainable development. IIEC pursues this mission in developing countries and countries in transition through the fieldwork undertaken by its regional offices. IIEC has full-time local staff in each of its regional offices that are well placed to contribute to regional programs due to their extensive exposure to energy activities in the region and their understanding of cultural issues relevant to the countries.
Through its global network of offices and consultants, IIEC works with governments and the private sector to develop, implement, and evaluate clean energy, clean transport and clean air policies, programs, and projects. The activities carried out by IIEC are often multi-disciplined in nature, requiring interactions between professionals at the federal, state, and local governments in partnership with industry.
Over the past 3 decades. IIEC has established a nice – as a provider of novel solutions with the flexibility to work simultaneously with multilateral institutions, governments, academic and research organizations industry, and non-government organizations.
The three key activities related to cities climate finance being implemented by IIEC include:
- Efficient and Clean Cooling – IIEC is implementing business models to transform the market for efficient and clean cooling technologies in Southeast Asian countries. In five Pacific Island countries, IIEC is demonstrating innovative technologies and business models for efficient and clean cooling.
- Renewable Energy Technology Integration in Buildings – In India, IIEC is implementing a Swiss Development and Cooperation (SDC) funded program to promote the “Integration of Renewable Energy in Buildings”. The program is developing innovative financing models.
- Electric Vehicle Charging and Discharging Infrastructure in Buildings and Future Role of Distribution Utilities – IIEC is developing a case in India for grid-interfaced renewable energy based and building integrated charging infrastructure with bidirectional power flow capability through electric vehicle charging/discharging and its impact on current relationship with DISCOMs.
Other members can request for detailed information on IIECs programs and activities and identify the areas of synergies. IIEC has 38-years of experience in design and implementation of clean energy finance mechanisms for cities and countries. IIEC can share the experiences and learnings with members of the alliance to support the development of new and innovative program for cities.
IIEC closely work with most of the multilateral and bi-lateral agencies and philanthropies on city and country level climate finance programs and topics. IIEC provide technical assistance to developing country governments and design and implement clean energy and climate finance mechanisms.
Sharing of our experience with a broader network of partners, organisations, governments, and countries. Learning from the projects and programs implemented by alliance partners. And identifying possible areas for synergies, cooperation and leveraging.
IIEC can contribute to the activities related to buildings, clean energy finance, clean energy access, energy efficiency and clean transport sectors. IIEC’s vast experience in building sector energy efficiency and renewable energy technology integration in buildings can contribute greatly to the alliance.
