Mission & Vision

​Our Mission

The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) is the association that represents all U.S. investor-owned electric companies. Our members provide electricity for 220 million Americans, operate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and directly and indirectly employ more than one million workers.
Safe, reliable, affordable, and clean energy powers the economy and enhances the lives of all Americans.
EEI has dozens of international electric companies as International Members, and hundreds of industry suppliers and related organizations as Associate Members.
EEI provides its members with 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.
