Our mission and objectives

EURELECTRIC's mission is to contribute to the development and competitiveness of the electricity industry, to provide effective representation for the industry in public affairs and to promote the role of a low-carbon electricity mix in the advancement of society.

Currently, EURELECTRIC's three major objectives are:

  • Delivering carbon-neutral electricity in Europe by 2050
  • Ensuring a cost-efficient, reliable supply through an integrated market
  • Developing energy efficiency and the electrification of the demand-side to mitigate climate change.

Our work 

Our work covers all major issues affecting our sector, from markets to energy policy, environment & sustainable development, networks and many other issues. 

Our members meet regularly in working groups in order to discuss specific issues and identify - through in-depth and specialised research into the marketplace, technologies and legislation - the common interests of our industry. On this basis, they prepare policy papers and reports. We then work to promote the views of our industry at European level and effectively engage in debates with EU officials and other energy stakeholders.

Our activities also include organising conferences and events, contributing to press articles and collecting statistics.
