Dear IPEEC visitor,

IPEEC was an autonomous partnership of nations founded in 2009 by the Group of 8 (G8) to promote collaboration on energy efficiency. Its membership included 17 of the Group of 20 (G20) economies, which represent over 80% of global energy use and over 80% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

IPEEC provided information to decision-makers in major economies, facilitated candid discussions for exchanging ideas and experiences and helped countries undertake joint projects to develop and implement energy efficiency policies and measures at a global scale. It was also a forum for member and non-member economies to share information about various bilateral and multilateral initiatives. IPEEC’s mandate was terminated in December 2019.

Please read our letter to the energy efficiency community here.
