HELIO International's name comes from the various energy options that best support ecodevelopment. The idea was born in 1996 during preparations for RIO+5. HELIO obtained its not-for-profit status in July 1997 and is registered under the French Law of 1901.
Analyse whether energy policy was supporting ecodevelopment
Assess whether existing and future energy assets were vulnerable to the impacts of climate change
Call attention to a smart energy path approach to ensure ecodevelopment
HELIO has proudly held a unique place in the global environmental movement. It owes this to its members, who have been professionally demanding and dedicated to the public good globally.
Dr. Hélène Connor
Founder and Honorary President
What is ecodevelopment ?
Ecodevelopment is sustainable and equitable development for all. It is the use of natural resources with usufructal technologies and the regulation of markets with participatory governance. The harmonious interaction between the environment and markets results in ecodevelopment.

Sustainable energy watch observatory
HELIO is known for its methodologies and indicator development.
The first set of policy indicators measured a country or region’s progress towards or movement away from sustainability. This was called the Sustainable Energy Watch (SEW) indicators. More info
With the increasing threat of climate change impacts, the SEW indicators were enlarged to include indicators that measured the vulnerability of energy systems to climate change and analysed the capacity of adaptation and resilience (VAR) of a country, therefore also assessing the quality of governance. This second set of indicators was called VAR indicators. More info
Good decisions require good information. However, good information is often not readily available. HELIO’s TIPEE indicators allowed decision makers to use information at-hand to assess whether a current energy policy, under changing climatic conditions, is on track to meet ecodevelopment objectives. TIPEE is from the French and meansTraitement de l’information pour des politiques énergétiques favorisant l’écodéveloppement. More info
The Smart Energy Path (SEP) includes all stakeholders as joint decision-makers. Together they identify a viable long-term future, requiring only or mostly local energy resources. This ecodevelopment planning is done using backcasting. More info
The HELIO Index for Investors (HIFI) helps financiers identify countries best-suited for investment based on how well a country’s energy policies are conducive to the ecodevelopment of the country. Countries practicing SEP would qualify for such investments. More info
The encompassing nature of ecodevelopment, coupled with HELIO's philosophy of inclusive participation, allowed for dialogue and debate across disciplines, countries and even cultures.
Laura E. WILLIAMSON
Founding Board Secretary, Project Director & Board Member
HELIO defined public participation procedures to allow energy users and civil society to be better informed and participate in the energy planning processes as a result of liberalised European power markets.
The vast sums of money and human resources which are currently flooding into non-renewable energy and into the arms industry supporting war must be diverted to development of an equally profitable economy based on renewable energy and eco-development, with the potential to address climate change and encourage conflict prevention.
HELIO participated in all the UNFCCC Conference of Parties up to COP21, hosting numerous side-events and presenting its on-going work. At COP5 HELIO introduced the first set of indicators to measure the sustainability of projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). HELIO presented its latest tools - HIFI and SEP - at COP21.
UN ECOSOC, CSD, WSSD, RIO+5, RIO+10, RIO+20
At RIO+10 (WSSD) HELIO coordinated the French NGO and official contribution on energy. HELIO also presented a major report within the official events in cooperation with International Energy Agency and the World Energy Council. The report used the SEW indicators to track the contribution of energy policies worldwide to ecodevelopment.
Responsible for the overall direction of HELIO including providing oversight for the organisation's finances.
Responsible for developing and adapting the HELIO indicators as well as providing technical assistance.
Responsible for identifying and communicating regional issues to the HELIO Secretariat.
Responsible for identifying and coordinating the work of in-country reporters.
Responsible for preparing country-level reports, using HELIO’s methodologies and Sustainable Energy Watch indicators.
Over the course of HELIO's tenure a core team of people supported HELIO with their time and talents. Their names are linked to their LinkedIn profile.
In 2015, after twenty years of operation, HELIO International decided to discontinue its in-country activities. It now concentrates its resources and knowledge through this Creative Commons website. HELIO’s methodologies, indicators and tools remain available to all; to be used in promoting ecodevelopment through better decision-making and planning in the energy sphere.
The African arm of HELIO International has been created. It is working in Central and West Africa as HELIO-Afrique.
