IEA Member countries co-operate to increase their collective energy security through diversification of their energy sources and improved energy efficiency, while ensuring economic competitiveness and protecting the environment.
Every four years, the policies of individual Member countries undergo an in-depth review by their peers. In intervening years, brief standard reviews update the main energy policy developments and report on progress in implementing the recommendations of the in-depth reviews. A compendium of energy policies is published annually, along with a synthesis report highlighting important cross-cutting policy issues.
The IEA also undertakes policy analysis and co-operates in the development of policies in the areas of energy efficiency, energy diversification (electricity, natural gas, coal, renewable energy sources) and the integration of environmental concerns into energy policies.
