IERE in the past

The International Electric Research Exchange (IERE), was established in October 1968.

Since then, with the leadership of 4 founding members; EPRI, UNIPEDE, CEA and Japan IERE Council. IERE had been promoting information exchange on R&D and cooperative activities among the leading electric utilities of the world for the mutual benefit.
