IEA to establish regional cooperation centre in Singapore

The centre will start operations in the second half of 2024.

The International Energy Association (IEA) will be setting up a Regional Cooperation Centre in Singapore, marking its first venture outside its headquarters in Paris, France.

In a joint statement, the IEA and the Singapore Ministry of Trade and Industry said the regional office will work with all countries in Southeast Asia and beyond to improve energy security and energy transition.

It will focus on IEA’s activities and engagements which include providing policy guidance, technical assistance, and training and capacity building with a focus on scaling up renewables, clean energy technologies, cross-border trade, and investments.

Through the Centre, we stand ready to accompany all of the countries in the region as they strive to provide affordable, reliable and modern energy for all their citizens,” IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol said.
