Energy company membership is open to U.S.-based entities and internationally-based entities with significant business operations in the U.S. that generate, transmit, supply, store, or otherwise provide energy. Full members of CEWD’s partner associations, (i.e. AGA, APGA, EEI, NEI, and NRECA) are eligible for energy company membership (so long as they are eligible for membership under CEWD’s requirements.) (Members of DCA, another of CEWD’s partners, are likely eligible for CEWD membership as contractors.) CEWD is currently not accepting applications from internationally-based entities with limited or no business operations in the U.S.
