ETI, Energy Transition Initiative

The ETI Program objective is to shape and inform public policies and regulatory frameworks pertaining to the energy transition and to enable the region’s transition to a more sustainable energy mix. It also fosters policies to incentivize investment in renewable technologies that will accelerate the de-carbonization of the region and boost energy security and economic development.

Private Sector Engagement

In addition to public policy, the ETI encompasses direct engagement with private sector actors.

• Organize delegations, roundtables and targeted technical workshops to better understand California’s rapidly expanding renewables sector.

• Leverage the IOA’s relationships with private sector actors in the Americas and Europe to facilitate exchange of information and high-level networking throughout the region.

The ETI engages with policymakers, journalists, and private sector actors from around the region. Given the geographical diversity of IOA’s longstanding Energy & Sustainability Program, policy expertise is not limited to one country.

Priority Areas

Renewable Energy

Policy analysis for Distributed Generation and utility scale projects (energy auctions) and grid resiliency.


Including the analysis of energy tariff structure and how different applications of batteries fit into markets and improve grid conditions.


Policies to decarbonize public and private transportation, analysis of policy incentives and subsidies.

Hydrogen and biofuels

Policies and market mechanisms to produce hydrogen and biofuels to support decarbonization of heavy duty transportation and storage or intermittent renewables for a flexible grid.
