Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)

Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) conducts research on issues of interest to the electric power industry in the USA. EPRI is an independent, nonprofit organization funded by the electric utility industry. Although EPRI is primarily a US organization, it receives international participation. EPRI's area of interest covers most aspects of electric power generation, delivery and use.

Following Senate hearings in the early 1970s on the lack of R&D supporting the power industry, all sectors of the U.S. electricity industry—public, private, and cooperative—voluntarily pooled their funds to begin an industry-wide collaborative R&D program[citation needed]. EPRI was formally established in 1973 as the Electric Power Research Institute. It was created as an independent, nonprofit organization designed to manage a broad public-private collaborative research program on behalf of the electric utility industry, the industry’s customers, and society at large. Underlying EPRI’s creation was recognition of the profound and beneficial impact of electricity on modern life.

EPRI’s R&D program spans virtually every aspect of generation, environmental protection, power delivery, retail use, and power markets. Today, EPRI provides solutions and services to more than 1000 energy-related organizations in 40 countries.
