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 clean energy resources and energy efficiency opportunities.

Our Research:

  • The Mexico Energy Initiative seeks to foster increased high impact, collaborative clean energy research and development between the US and Mexico that will benefit Mexico, California, the US, and the world.

  • 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.

  • The International Energy Studies Group addresses the electricity, peak load, and greenhouse gas emissions challenges posed by growing cooling demand by research on the following research topics:

  • 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.

  • Our work seeks to promote and advance the evaluation of energy efficiency and clean energy policies and programs.

  • The IES Group has been working with Indian policymakers and industries for more than two decades.

  • 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.

  • 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.
