EEI Associate Membership is designed for firms that have an interest in advancing the development of the electric power industry. These firms may provide goods and services to the industry, but may not be engaged in the generation, transmission, distribution, brokerage, or sale of electricity, or if so engaged, not regulated as an electric utility. Associate membership helps firms to better know and understand the industry, the people, and key issues.

Power Membership Program

Are you ready to take your EEI Associate Membership to the next level—with higher visibility and access in the electric power industry plus increased brand awareness? If so, we have a program designed just for you.

EEI is proud to present Power Membership to its Associate Members. This exclusive program provides a wide assortment of benefits, including:

  • Exclusive Power Membership events with high level electric power industry decision makers,
  • Enhanced Member Services through EEI’s Membership Department,
  • Registration and sponsorship credits for EEI conferences,
  • Strategic placement of your company’s logo on EEI member publications,
  • Exclusive advertising opportunities in the industry’s premier magazine Electric Perspectives, and much more

These added benefits to your Associate Membership will translate into enhanced relationships with electric power industry leaders and heightened visibility for your company.

Power Membership is generally a yearly commitment on behalf of an interested Associate Member. To qualify for Power Membership, a company will commit $40,000 or more. To qualify for Power-Plus Membership, a company will commit $80,000 or more. This money can then be used throughout the year in whatever way your company would like – including EEI event sponsorships, advertisements in our publications, event registrations and much, much more. While Power-Plus members receive more branding opportunities, both may attend exclusive events with EEI electric power company decision makers. Please note – approximately $10,000 of your Power Membership credits must be reserved for your company’s Associate Membership dues and the cost of Power Member events.
