OUR VISION:

A world where energy needs are met sustainably and energy efficiency achieves its full potential.

To bring this vision into reality, the IES Group assists countries in identifying and utilizing low carbon energy resources and energy efficiency opportunities.

OUR RESEARCH:

The IES Group assists governments, utilities, and the private sector in analyzing and implementing policies and programs to improve the energy efficiency of appliances and equipment.

In the IES Group, we are passionate about the development and research of the built environment. Our work contributes to the understanding of energy use and efficiency measures in the building sector, and with international collaboration we promote strategies and best practices to reduce building energy use globally.

Globally, the power sector currently has the largest GHG emission footprint among all the energy consuming sectors, while demand for electricity in emerging economies is projected to quadruple over the next two decades.

We focus on techno-economic assessments of clean energy options in the power sector, undertake scenario analysis of integration of these options, and assess policies and program for facilitating their adoption.

 

Our work seeks to promote and advance the evaluation of energy efficiency and clean energy policies and programs . Impact and process evaluations of such programs and policies are conducted to quantify impacts (e.g., kWh saved or CO2 emissions reduced), improve design, and improve implementation.

 

The IES Group has been working with Indian policymakers and industries for more than two decades. Our work includes reassessing the renewable energy potential in India, developing comprehensive models for optimal grid dispatch and capacity expansion, analyzing the financial and emissions impact of clean energy options for India, and assessing the potential for efficiency enhancement in the residential, industrial and buildings sector. 

We provide in-depth analysis of energy efficiency opportunities in energy-intensive industrial sectors (e.g., iron and steel, chemicals, petroleum refining, cement, aluminum, pulp and paper) within targeted countries.

More than 1.25 billion people in the world do not have access to electricity. Renewable energy-based off-grid and mini-grid solutions offer a significant opportunity to increase access to reliable electricity services. We focus on technical guidance and developing policy frameworks for mini-grid and off-grid solutions.

The IES Group's transportation work is a growing area of interest. We are developing various tools and modeling, analysis and design capacities to address the growing and complex needs of conventional, hybrid-electric and pure electric vehicles.
