The Electricity Association of Ireland (EAI) is the representative body for the electricity industry and gas retail sector operating within the Single Energy Market (SEM) on the Island of Ireland.
Our membership comprises utilities that represent 90% of generation and retail business activities and 100% of distribution within the market. Our members range in size from single plant operators and independent suppliers to international power utilities.
Electricity has a fundamental role in providing energy services in a decarbonised future, in particular through the progressive electrification of transport and heating. We believe that this can be achieved, in the overall interest of society, through competitive markets that support customer preference and sustainable investment. We promote this vision through constructive engagement with key policy, regulatory, technology and academic stakeholders both at domestic and EU levels.
EAI represents the Irish electricity industry in Eurelectric and helps shape the broader European response to developing policy and legislative initiatives.
Eurelectric is the sector association which represents the common interests of the electricity industry at pan-European level, plus its affiliates and associates on several other continents. It currently has over 34 full members, representing the electricity industry in 32 European countries. The EAI is represented on all the Committees and Working groups of Eurelectric.
