Electric power companies face unique challenges and tradeoffs related to sustainability. They are expected to manage financial, environmental and social performance, while providing safe, reliable and affordable power. Electric power companies can achieve enduring growth, superior long-term financial performance, and improved risk management by thoughtfully addressing sustainability issues.
EPRI produces research and tools that help electric utilities define, measure, and achieve sustainability. Our work enables companies to share, innovate, and learn about sustainability topics most important to electric utilities and their stakeholders. Beginning in 2008 and with more than 40 electric companies participating today, we are supporting one of the largest collaborative research initiatives in the industry focused on advancing sustainability.
