EAI was established with the initial aim of ensuring Ireland's ongoing membership of EURELECTRIC, the influential representative body for the electricity sector in Europe.
EAI remains a member, ensuring the island-of-Ireland's voice is heard in Europe.
Committees, Working Groups and Task Forces are at the heart of activity in EURELECTRIC.
On a EURELECTRIC group an EAI member can influence decisions and policies on behalf of the Association. An active member can have an influence out of proportion to the size of the Association’s home market.
These Groups are also a rich source of early information for the EAI committees, task forces, membership and secretariat.
This influence and intelligence is highly prized by regulators and governments and can be an instrument for magnifying the influence of the Association.
