Previously the International Cogeneration Alliance (founded in 1997 as part of UNFCCC negotiations), WADE was formed in 2002 to promote decentralised energy technology and industry. Though its main base is in Washington, WADE ione of the UK registered observer parties to the COP summits.

"WADE’s five key objectives and programmes

1. To provide its Members and supporters with value added market intelligence, information and business opportunities 2. To bring about effective power sector reform which eliminates barriers to DE and creates real market opportunity for DE; 3. To co-ordinate the creation and monetisation of high quality carbon credits from DE projects; 4. To compile global data on all aspects of DE development; 5. To support the establishment of DE groups in every country."[1]
