The International Energy Agency (IEA)
The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an intergovernmental organisation which acts as energy policy adviser to 28 member countries in their effort to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for their citizens. The IEA was founded during the oil crisis of 1973-74 with the initial role of coordinating measures in times of oil supply emergencies. As energy markets have changed so has the IEA.
