Connecting Worlds for a Brighter Future
Lawrence E. Jones is Senior Vice President of EEI International Programs.
Since EEI was founded ninety years ago, our member companies have harnessed the power of electricity to spur innovation, improve quality of life, and bolster economic growth. As senior vice president of Edison Electric Institute's International Programs, I work with our members in the global electric power industry to support the development of affordable, clean, reliable, and resilient power systems of the future.
Electrifying the world will require further innovation and collaboration across all sectors and regions. One of EEI International Programs' initiatives for using technological, policy, and business model innovation to accelerate widespread electrification globally is the Electricity Diplomacy Initiative.
Electric Diplomacy Initiative
Partnership, collaboration, and compromise are vital components of the work that I do with EEI's International Programs. Throughout my career, these principles have been demonstrated by electric company workforces as they deliver affordable, clean, and resilient electricity to the communities they serve.
