Power Apparatus

AEIC, Power Apparatus

Areas of Focus

The Power Apparatus committee breaks down silos between electric utilities and the manufacturers of major electric utility power apparatus. As we move towards a more modern grid, the Committee facilitates access to the highest-quality, most economical products that are consistent with electric utility needs. The committee also meets with those organizations responsible for research, technical specifications, standards, and safety.

Members are typically senior vice presidents, vice presidents, directors, general managers, and managers
