IEA Acedemics

Our History

International Energy Academy (IEA), a US/German-led organization, is an international project of sustainable development established in 2004. It was a product of the cooperation between various renewable energy schools, companies and NGOs which aims at knowledge transfer and regional development in the field of renewable energy and entrepreneur.
IEA will provide local and international students with practical knowledge about renewable energy in general, and off-grid and grid-tied solar, wind and hydro energy solutions and applications in particular. IEA’s workshops, certificate programs and highly practice oriented post-graduate diploma degree aims at regional and sound sustainable business development. The founders of IEA have already set standards by investing in infrastructure, such as the school’s training facilities at Epe and Ibadan.
