Through its broad range of multilateral technology initiatives (Implementing Agreements),
the IEA enables member and non-member countries, businesses, industries, international
organisations and non-government organisations to share research on breakthrough technologies,
to fill existing research gaps, to build pilot plants and to carry out deployment
or demonstration programmes. Energy Technology Initiatives: Implementation through
Multilateral Co-operation, highlights the most significant recent achievements of
the 42 IEA Implementing Agreements.
