This November, IIEC celebrated its first 30 years by welcoming energy and climate change experts from around the world to gather in Washington, DC and discuss the major challenges and solutions facing the global energy landscape. The Symposium featured keynote speeches by Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts, and the executive director of the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC), Benoit Lebot. Two panels led animated conversations about what approaches are working best in the climate and energy arena, and how to extend results to the people and places that need them most.

Take a look at what we do, where we do it, and who it helps! This short film tells the IIEC story – showcasing past and present leadership, and highlighting some of our recent work around the globe.

In the third-quarter of 2014, a lamp sampling activity in six Southeast Asian countries was conducted with collaboration between IIEC and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). This effort was designed to strengthen and support national and regional resources for the monitoring, verification, and enforcement (MVE) of efficient lighting; these activities are essential to fostering a sustainable transition to efficient lighting.

The Compliance Assistance Program (CAP) of UNEP’s Regional Office in Asia and the Pacific has awarded IIEC a project to develop a comprehensive document on “Vision 2030: Ozone and Climate Friendly Transition for Buildings for Asia”. The objective of the project is to prepare a strategic vision document for Ozone- and Climate-Friendly transition in the Building sector across the Asia-Pacific region. About 88% of hydro chlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) consumption in Article 5 countries takes place in the refrigeration and air-conditioning sectors.
