Who We Are

The Office of International Affairs (IA) works with the larger U.S. interagency foreign policy team to collaborate with governments worldwide to design and accelerate global clean energy transitions that address the climate crisis, enhance and ensure energy security, and create good paying jobs and prosperity for the American people and communities everywhere. 

Our Mission

As the Department’s lead on international energy issues, the Office of International Affairs is responsible for directing diplomatic outreach, leading multilateral energy negotiations -- including in ministerial-level energy tracks in the G7, G20, APEC where the Secretary of Energy represents the U.S  --  and developing energy policies to advance the administration’s global climate, economic, and security goals through cooperative platforms like the International Energy Agency, the Clean Energy Ministerial, and Mission Innovation.
