EEI’s member companies are leading a clean energy transformation. We are united in our commitment to get the energy we provide as clean as we can as fast as we can, without compromising on the reliability or affordability that are essential to the customers and communities we serve. Today, carbon emissions from the U.S. power sector are as low as they were in 1984, while electricity use is up 72 percent since then.
EEI’s member companies are committed to continuing to reduce carbon emissions in our sector and 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 in place, we can do even more to build a cleaner, stronger economy together.
Together, we are delivering America’s energy future.
Electric Companies Are Leading on Clean Energy
In November 2021, an EEI delegation traveled to Glasgow, Scotland, to participate in the COP26 global climate change meetings and to highlight the leadership of U.S. electric companies in reducing carbon emissions.
