What We Do
The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) examines issues related to energy markets, trends, and policies. The Institute’s mission is to accelerate the transition to a diverse, sustainable and profitable energy economy.
Our team of energy finance analysts, communications experts, and management professionals are based in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America. Each team member brings specialized experience—whether in investment decision-making, utility resource planning, banking, economic policy, public relations or campaign development—that creates a unique fusion of insight and expertise.
IEEFA’s market-based research shows how the rise of the new energy economy, where renewable energy sources are steadily eroding reliance on fossil fuels, makes financial sense for investors, governments, businesses, communities and ratepayers.
The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis is a U.S. non-profit corporation, recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation.
IEEFA receives its funding from global philanthropic organizations and individuals. We gratefully acknowledge our supporters, including the Charles and Helen Brown Foundation, ClimateWorks Foundation, Climate Imperative, Energy Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, Just Transition Fund, KR Foundation, Laudes Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, Mertz-Gilmore Foundation, Oceankind, Park Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Rockefeller Family Fund, Sandler Foundation, Sequoia Climate Foundation, Wallace Global Fund, and other generous funders.
IEEFA’s annual tax returns (990s) and audited financial statements are available here:
Our work has helped change the rules of the game on capital investment in both the public and private sectors, and is increasingly influencing the measures by which investors assess the benefits and risks of their energy holdings.
IEEFA’s nonpartisan and evidence-based approach provides solid ground on which to base sound investment and policy decisions and to challenge misinformation.
