Content Description

Set up in 1974 as an independent body of the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), the IEA now has 30 members.* Austria, a founder member, is an active partner in the IEA's research and technology network via the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK).

The IEA aims to help member states and other countries make their energy supply clean, safe and affordable. The IEA's Energy Technology Network provides a platform for the global exchange of expertise and new insights from energy research and thus supports the coordination of national energy and technology policies amongst member countries.
