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.
