The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) is an international collaborative research programme established in 1991 as an Implementing Agreement under the International Energy Agency (IEA).
IEAGHG studies and evaluates technologies that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions derived from the use of fossil fuels. The Programme aims to provide its members with definitive information on the role that technology can take in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
IEAGHG takes pride in being an informed but unbiased source of technical information on greenhouse gas mitigation.
The programme’s main activities are:
- To evaluate technologies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
- To help facilitate the implementation of potential mitigation options.
- To disseminate the data and results from evaluation studies.
- To help facilitate international collaborative research, development and demonstration activities (R,D&D).
