USEA supports the mission of the World Energy Council, "to promote the sustainable supply and use of energy for the greatest benefit of all."  Find out more about USEA's work with our partners and members here.

For utilities around the globe grappling with the unique challenges of bringing additional renewable energy into the electric grid, nothing beats learning from the first-hand experiences of those who have already made the transition. 

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) works with The U.S. Energy Association (USEA) and its members to partner with global leaders in...

Coal is a critical part of the global energy sector and electricity generation mix.  Coal-fired power plants account for over 40% of global electricity generation.  Find out more about USEA's work with our partners and members here.

Electricity distribution is the final phase of delivering electric power to consumers.  Typically occurring at lower voltages, distribution refers to the tansfer of electric power from the high-voltage transmission network to residential, commercial, and industrial consumers.  Find out more about the work USEA is undertaking with our partners and members.

Energy efficiency is the process of reducing the amount of energy required to provide products and services.  Energy efficiency is a cost-effective method of ensuring the sustainability of our energy resources.  Find out more about USEA's work with our members and partners here.

Generation is the provess of producing electricity by transforming any other form of energy into electrical energy.  Find out more about USEA's work with our partners and members here.

Nuclear power is electric or motive power generated by a nuclear reactor.  It accounts for approximately 19% of power generation annually in the US.  Find out more about USEA's work with our members and partners here.

Oil and gas play a critical role in the global energy and transportation sectors.  The industry is typically classified in three sectors: upstream, midstream and downstream.  Find out more about USEA's work with our members and partners here.

Electricity transmission is the bulk movement of electrical energy from generators, including power plants, to electrical substations for voltage conversion.  Transmission is the link between generation and distribution.  Find out more about USEA's work with our members and partners here.
