The Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDE), located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was founded in 1987 under the International Energy Agency.[1]

The ETDE World Energy Base is an energy tool made for exchanging energy research and technology information. Some benefits of this energy information exchange are:

  • Keeping updated on recent developments in various research areas
  • Avoiding duplication of research effort and learning from expected and unexpected results
  • Jump-starting research at a point further along than anticipated
  • Identifying which countries and people are involved in particular research areas
  • Promoting international cooperation in energy research and development
  • Understanding how countries deal with energy-related environmental and climate change issues
  • Finding approaches to energy use, including policy and economic factors, alternative and renewable energy sources, and conservation aspects
  • Finding a historical perspective on energy issues[1]
