Our Mission

The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) is the association that represents all U.S. investor-owned electric companies. Our members provide electricity for nearly 250 million Americans, and operate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. As a whole, the electric power industry supports more than 7 million jobs in communities across the United States. In addition to our U.S. members, EEI has more than 70 international electric companies as International Members, and hundreds of industry suppliers and related organizations as Associate Members.

Organized in 1933, EEI provides public policy leadership, strategic business intelligence, and essential conferences and forums.

Our Vision

EEI will be the best trade association.

We will be the best because we are committed to knowing our members and their needs. We will provide leadership and deliver services that consistently meet or exceed their expectations.

We will be the best because we will attract and retain employees who have the ambition to serve and will empower them to work effectively as individuals and in teams.

Above all, we will be the best trade association because, in the tradition of Thomas Edison, we will make a significant and positive contribution to the long-term success of the electric power industry in its vital mission to provide electricity to foster economic progress and improve the quality of life.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Efforts

The electric industry is proud of our diverse and inclusive workforce, and we are constantly working to advance DEI measures here at EEI, through our Diversity & Inclusion Council, and at our member companies across the country, through industry-wide programs. 


You are welcome here.

EEI is committed to fostering a culture of respect and inclusion. One that celebrates the diverse backgrounds and experiences of our most valuable asset—our team. One that encourages employee engagement, enhances personal growth, and provides an environment where everyone feels respected, valued, and heard. One where all are welcome. You are welcome here.

Commitment to Transparency for Funding and Activities

EEI’s member companies are among the most regulated companies in the country, and EEI engages on their behalf with federal and state legislators, regulators, and other policymakers through lobbying, advocacy, and regulatory proceedings, with the goal of providing customers affordable, reliable, and resilient clean energy.

In addition to the detailed disclosures required by federal law, EEI voluntarily produces an annual Lobbying, Advocacy, and Other Expenditures report that outlines our funding and activities and is responsive to the information needs of our member companies and their regulators.

Read the 2024 Lobbying, Advocacy, and Other Expenditures report.
