Programme of Work
Task 1 serves as a platform for information exchange among member countries. The objectives are to collect, analyze, and disseminate information relating to hybrid, electric, and fuel cell vehicles from both member and nonmember countries.
Information Exchange Topics:
Research and technology development
Commercialization, marketing, and sales
Regulation, standards, and policies
Country experts present information at semiannual meetings held in conjunction with the IA-HEV Executive Committee (ExCo) meetings and provide country-specific information for IA-HEV publications. The Task Operating Agent (OA) is responsible for coordinating activities, maintaining the public and the members-only IA-HEV websites, distributing a semiannual newsletter, and producing the IA-HEV annual report.
Task 1 began in 1995 and is ongoing.
Membership is automatic for all IA-HEV members.

There is no cost for membership. The Task is sponsored by the Vehicle Technologies Program, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, U.S. Department of Energy.
Benefits of Participation
Information exchange is at the core of IA-HEV work, enabling members to share key insights and best practices and identify common interests in the rapidly-growing international hybrid and electric vehicle field.
