Institute for Energy Research

IER

Washington D.C., United States

The Institute for Energy Research (IER) is a not-for-profit organization that conducts intensive research and analysis on the functions, operations, and government regulation of global energy markets. IER maintains that freely-functioning energy markets provide the most efficient and effective solutions to today’s global energy and environmental challenges and, as such, are critical to the well-being of individuals and society. Founded in 1989 from a predecessor organization, IER is a public foundation and is funded entirely by tax deductible contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations. No financial support is sought for or accepted from government sources. IER's perspective is based on the following tenets: free markets, objective science, public policy tradeoffs, efficient outcomes and impartiality in research.
