EEI’s member companies are leading a clean energy transformation. We are committed to getting the energy we provide as clean as we can as fast as we can, without compromising customer affordability and reliability. Today, carbon emissions from the U.S. electric power sector are as low as they were almost 40 years ago, while electricity use has climbed 73 percent since then.
EEI’s member companies are continuing to work to reduce carbon emissions in our sector and are committed to helping other sectors—particularly the transportation and industrial sectors—transition to clean, efficient electric energy. This is just the start. With investments in new technologies and the right policies, we can do even more to build a cleaner, stronger economy together.
Together, we are delivering America’s resilient clean energy future.
Electric Companies Are Leading on Clean Energy
