Mission: To promote the sustainable supply and use of energy for the greatest benefit of all

The United States Energy Association (USEA) supports policy and technical discussions with the U.S. Department of Energy to expand the use of clean energy technology globally and expands energy access in developing countries with the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Through its membership, USEA represents more than 100 companies and associations in the U.S. energy sector, including the largest Fortune 500 companies. Our team of international specialists draw upon those members to execute projects worldwide, which include developing regulatory frameworks and sharing best practices to reduce energy poverty and build economies.

USEA is a resource for its members, lawmakers, administration officials, and the global energy industry.
