the world, over the past decades, show that economic growth and industrial
development as prerequisites for political power, national independence and
cultural prosperity requires different factors that comprise energy source and
desirable and optimum utilization of its resources.

resources, wastage and misuse of these, would impose in compensable damages
upon annual budget of the country. This expenditure is equivalent to the total
budget for country's development and has been estimated to be about 8 billion
US dollars annually.

this matter, the government of Islamic republic of Iran, with the second
five-year plan of the country's economic, social and cultural development, has
turned the move towards optimizing energy utilization and promoting sound use
of the country's resources, into a duty for all those in responsible positions.
The deputy minister for energy and
electrical affairs, too, within the objectives of this same act and aiming to
make the energy utilization rational as well as optimum, began a widespread
planning campaign. To carrying out some of these activities the deputy minister
has decided for establishment of Iran

IEEO is contemplating to energy all
her capabilities, in different energy using sectors of the country especially
industries, alongside managers and specialists involved, to be able to make use
of all possible saving resources, in the direction of increasing national
income and general social security and country's development.
