International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC)

The International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC) was an autonomous partnership of nations founded in 2009 by the Group of 8 (G8) to promote collaboration on energy efficiency. Over the IPEEC’s 10 years, membership expanded to 17 of the Group of 20 (G20) economies, which represented 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 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.

IPEEC's functions have now moved to the Energy Efficiency Hub. The Energy Efficiency Hub is a new platform for global collaboration on energy efficiency.
