IENE is carrying out a broad based programme of research work, studies and publications focused on energy and environment issues related to SEEurope. IENE's research programme constitutes the basis of its research and scientific work, which is an inseparable part of the Institute's activities. The table below presents the full list of research and study programmes covering the period 2006-2014. Already, some of these projects have been completed while others are being implemented with funding coming from IENE's annual budget but also through sponsorship from companies active in the energy field or as part of EU funded programmes. The successful organization and implementation of research programmes and studies require core funding that ensures the regular disbursement of monies to the various projects.

All of IENE's research and study programmes are open to sponsorship and financial support from individuals, companies and organizations who are interested to support IENE’s work. IENE is open to proposals from companies and organizations wishing to initiate and support research and study activities.
